I eat at The Bun all the time. It's just taken me a while to get around to reviewing this great little place.
The Bun is located near the Carmel Market and is run by Shai and Ayal Kitches, two brothers who are the primary cooks there. It's a little restaurant that isn't necessarily the place you'd go for a meal you'd make an evening of, but that is not what it strives to be. Rather, Shai and Ayal cook South East Asian street food, which is quick, fresh, beautifully presented and delicious.
I've eaten some wonderful dishes there, from the Vietnamese Chaka La Vong to Indonesian Laksa. Their business lunch is also a great value.
And now a word to those who talked about terrible service. Never, in all my visits there have I not received attentive service with a smile and saying that if you don't order enough food you can't be seated is ridiculous, not to mention they have outside seating. Perhaps someone had an off day, but I'm telling you all, it's smiles all around, often with a chaser of sake or plum wine on the house.
The Bun, a great stop for lunch if going to they market, dinner with the kids, or with friends as the start of a night out.
About the photos, I used to have so many more....of the buns, of the curry etc. No idea what happened to them but all were delicious.
