Bun House founders to launch Hong Kong style restaurant and bar concept

Related tags: Hong kong, Restaurant, London

Husband and wife team Alex Peffly and Z He are to launch a bar and restaurant concept on the site of their original Bun House restaurant in Soho later this month.

Set over two floors, Wun’s aesthetic will be inspired by 1960s Hong Kong with the restaurant designed by He to reflect the city’s open-air street cafes, and the bar decked out with neon lights and velvet seating.

Menu options will include Cantonese dishes from He’s childhood such as her family’s signature sour plum-braised duck, and skewers served with either soy-braised aubergine rice or Iberico char siu rice.

The drinks list, meanwhile, will feature a selection of eclectic Chinese-style cocktails including the green bamboo and quince made with bamboo fenjiu, pue’er tea liqueur, fresh quince and mango; the chrysantheum and haw with Tou Mei chrysanthemum wine, haw liqueur, plum sour and dehydrated haw; and the plum and ‘Coke’ with sour plum-infused baiju, liquorice, sour plum tea and five spice syrup.

“Wun’s means a lot to me – it’s my name in Cantonese for a start – so we’ve created everything I would want from a Hong Kong bar,” says He.

“1960s Hong Kong was an interesting time when the city prospered, and the nightlife really took off, so Wun’s is a nod to that era.”

He and Peffly launched Cantonese-style bao brand Bun House on Soho's Greek Street back in 2017. 

Earlier this year they opened a sister site in Chinatown, which continues to operate.
