Not knowing exactly where I was going, I got in a taxi and in true dramatic Hollywood style followed The Bun Mobile Food Truck. They have a location calendar on their website, so today we were headed off to Brisbane West End.
I couldn’t help myself, if Tim was ordering chicken there was no way I could choose between Wagyu and pork. The buns were extremely soft and all the greens were very fresh.
The Wagyu bun – slow cooked Wagyu beef, butter lettuce, soy pickled shitake mushrooms and red dragon sauce ($8.00). The meat was soft and tender but I felt that there were tpo many elements to the bun that overwhelmed the taste.
The pork bun – twice cooked pork, hoisin sauce, sakura pickled cucumber and shallot batons ($8.00). They put too much hoisin sauce in the bun, which made it too similar to a heavily sauced peking duck pancake. If they eased up on the sauce it would be ok, but the pork was very tender.
The chicken bun – char grilled teriyaki chicken, slaw with julienne carrot and mint, Japanese mayo and hoisin sauce ($8.00). I’m not the biggest chicken fan (unless it’s wings) but I would have to say that this was the tastiest bun out of the three.
They have the three standard buns (pork, Wagyu and chicken) but they also had two specials, by streamlining their small menu allows a short waiting time for getting your meal. It was a really hot day when I had this so I wasn’t particularly ravenous and after nibbling and sharing three buns we were stuffed.
A nice concept to have delicious ‘Asian burgers’ on wheels to expand their market, I wish they’d drive down to Canberra though.
