Lisa Meyer, radio producer turned puffy bun genius, launched her street-food baby in 2010, after  she saw a recipe in one of her brother’s cookbooks. She set up a stall with her boyfriend at Broadway market and the rest is street-food history.

The delicate fluffy buns, which are soft and just on the right side of chewy, are all hand made, freshly steamed in batches and stuffed with fillings sent from heaven above! The pork bun with cucumber and chilli sauce is rocking!

The street-food scene has exploded and Yum Bun has been right at the forefront. Lisa put this down to the fact that people want to have a nibble on Friday night and that street-food markets provide quality, affordable food in a cool setting – she also credits Petra Barran – Kerb, Jonathan Downey – Tweat up and Dom Cools-Lartigue – Street Feast, for pushing this new brand of dining that has so much energy and excitement around it!
