Brisbane Eats: The Bun Mobile

The steamed bun is a winning food item in my family household – our household being made up of three Asians and one Scotsman who likes ethnic food. Pork buns are an oriental favourite among almost everyone I know, the softness of the bun blows everyone’s minds.

In the fast paced society we live in today, I guess it was only a matter of time before someone came up with the quick-footed idea to make food on the go. Now there are a surplus of fast food restaurants around where you barely need to lean out your car window to access the greasy goodness of a hamburger, but what about something different? Something good quality, tasty and mobile?

The Bun Mobile is a taste sensation travelling around all parts of Brisbane, delivering Asian-style steamed buns with delectable, locally grown fillings. Think burger, with an oriental twist. A simple menu consisting of 3 options for fillings, plus a new special every day and a dessert bun. The Bun Mobile delivers tasty food for cheap, roadside; all you need to do is follow their whereabouts on their facebook page.

On Friday, a grumbling stomach led me to my iPhone and I quickly located the buns in Fortitude Valley. Surrounded by a small crowd of people as eager to eat as I was, I ordered and waited. I’m glad to report I was pleasantly surprised how well the soft steamed bun went with the new contemporary fillings. Gone was the shredded pork mix I was used to, and in was a delicious serving of char grilled teriyaki chicken, slaw with julienne carrot and mint, Japanese mayo and hoisin sauce.
