Bunny Chow, Soho
I haven't found many South African restaurants in London but this small and fun retro joint proves to be a superb example of one of South Africa's Eastern Coastal City's foodie traditions. It's located in the heart of London's food scene on Wardour Street in Soho and provides really hearty food perfect for a cold and rainy day.
WHAT IS BUNNY CHOW?
It's a creation that takes a freshly-baked loaf with the middle taken out of it and is then crammed with something delicious like a curry or pulled pork and topped off with some delicious slaw or salad garnish. It's hearty, healthy and fresh.
Charcoal Brioche Loaf with Pulled Pork (£5) and a North Beach Cocktail of Coco cream, coco water, banana, lime, lemon (£2.50)
All Bunny Chow dishes are £5 and come in four different combinations:
Slow cooked mutton curry and your choice of topping - £5
Spicy chicken and tomato with your choice of topping - £5
Cauliflower, chickpeas, paneer, spicy South African sauce - £5
PIRI PIRI PORK BUNNY
8 hour pulled pork & Bunnychow’s Piri Piri sauce - £5
The food here is really fresh and tasty. They do cram the inside which means you get good value for money and it certainly fills you up. I had a delicious cocktail with my Bunny Chow as well which was decent. This is definitely a London Cheap Eat to add to your list!
The inside is very small, but clean and welcoming. The walls are decorated with Durban lingo which I loved as someone who has never visited SA. It's a great place to take travellers if you want to eat cheap or go with friends.
