Yum Bun @ Model Market | Street Feast, Lewisham

I'm not quite sure how or why it's taken me quite so long to try steamed buns, but I finally did the other weekend and they've kinda changed my life.

A few weekends ago I popped along to the street feast in Lewisham for a quick bite to eat with a friend. I've been meaning to go back since it opened for the summer in April because I loves it. I won't give you the whole run down because I did that last year but it's basically everything I love about the London street food 'scene' if you will.

We only actually ate at one stall, that stall being Yum Bun, because when we had one, we had to try another and I had to give them a shout out here because honestly.... amazing!!! So we first tried the Shrimp Sambal bun which was my personal favourite. It was spicy in all the right places, a mix of textures with the crust on the shrimp and the shrimps themselves? Possibly the best I've ever had. They were cooked to utter perfection. Seriously, I've had dreams about them since.

The second bun we tried was a mushroom and miso option with cucumbers and a sprinkling of nuts which was also stunning.

Aaaaand now I just want to eat everything in a steamed bun. As well as seriously considering going back to the street feast just to munch on these again.
