Yum Bun – Pork and Shrimp Steamed Buns


It’s only natural that I would go from tacos to what are, under my inexperienced eyes, Japanese tacos. Using steam buns as a base, the japs have created this fascinating new (well, new for me anyways) way of consuming various quirky ingredients.

And thus, my Dinerama adventure continued, because I couldn’t be satisfied with only one meal, so I had to give the buns from Yum Bun a go. I ordered both a pork and a shrimp bun, both coming with various sauces, veggies, spices, etc. Both a bundle of joy (pun absolutely intended).

So much bun! Yum Bun - Pork and Shrimp Steamed Buns

So much bun!

These buns are the softest kind of bread I’ve tried, and they blend perfectly with whatever they come with (and I do emphasize the whatever). The pork one, with its hoisin sauce, was succulent, and the shrimp one was a spicy delicacy.

At Slimy yet Satisfying, we appreciate all meals that can be eaten with bare hands. So Yum Bun passes the test, and I’ll be coming back for more yummy bunnies. On second thought, maybe I’ll start my own bun business called Yummy Bunnies.

Slimy? These buns are a bit sticky. Which is good, it keeps the ingredients in place.

Satisfying? Yummy bunny.
