Sparking up arousal amongst those navy blue suited lot, we’ve recently seen a whole host of new ventures appear in the city of our city.
Formally stricken with lunchtime chains and old man pubs the hamlet is under metamorphosis, with cool new openings bobbing up like rubber ducks in the bath, every other week.
One opening in particular to note is Beer and Buns.
Stashed above K10 on Apopld Street, Beer and Buns has been dubbed an ‘Izakaya’, which roughly translates as a Japanese drinking establishment that’s serves food to accompany the drinks.
The gallant beer menu which is said to offer the largest selection of Japanese beer in the UK contains craft beers you most likely will have never tried and wont find in many other places in London. Favorites include Asahi Super Dry ‘Super Cold’ (on draught), Echigo Koshihikari (rice larger) and Coedo Ruri.
If it was the buns that lured you in and not the beers, then take note as the frozen Yuza Margarita is certain to add an essence of fire cracker to your Friday night.
All that beer bottle lifting is just the kind of cardio that’s going to leaving you hungry for a fluffy little hirata bun and luckily they are serving just these. select from; tender pork belly with braised red cabbage and mustard mayo, chicken with Yuza Koshu slaw and Pulled Duck leg with pickled cucumber, caramelised spring onion and harasame sauce.
With punchy menu, a jovially boisterous crowd and a selection of mind expanding craft beers this venue holds a unique yet weighty hand of culinary cards.
