Last week I discovered Bunnychow for the first time. I feel like I must be late on the bandwagon as they’ve already got big plans for expanding beyond their awesome looking van. The food is delicious, fun and filling – this is grub you’ve got to try.
Bunny chow or ‘bunnies’ were first created in the 1940s in Durban, South Africa. They are traditionally hollowed out bread filled with curry: portable and edible – that’s what we like. Nowadays creative imaginations fill the bunny chow bread with a variety of culinary delights and at Bunnychow they look to flavours from all over the world for various fun takes that will please all pallets.
The weekend before last I chatted to Sam from Bunnychow at a pop up street food market at Stratford Westfield. Listen below.
I ate the Monkey Gland Bunny; the meatballs were plentiful and succulent and the sweet and sour BBQ sauce had just the right amount of kick. I’d definitely chow down on those again. Also, keep your eyes peeled for their more permanent residences opening in Boxpark Shorditch and Wardour Street, Soho.
