Bun House, the Cantonese steamed bun specialist owned by husband and wife team Alex Peffly and Z He, has opened its first satellite location at Box Park Wembley.

The opening marks the next stage in the development of the Bun House brand, which in February established a new flagship site in Chinatown.

According to the Box Park website, the Wembley menu features new additions such as a beef brisket bun; and a brioche-style pineapple bun.

The menu will also include favourites from the Chinatown site including the pig bun with char sui pork belly; a cumin-spiced lamb bun; and a sweet custard bun.

Peffly and He opened the original 10-cover Bun House on Greek Street in Soho in early 2017​, with a focus on Chinese-style bao that, unlike the Taiwanese buns popularised by the likes of Bao and Flesh & Buns, are served closed with the filling inside.

However, the size of the Soho site meant it had a limited production capacity, leading the pair to move the operation to a larger location on Lisle Street in Chinatown.

They then converted the Greek Street site into Wun's Tea Room & Bar​; a Hong Kong-style concept partly inspired by He’s upbringing, which opened in July. 

Speaking to BigHospitality ​in August, Peffly and He said they believe the Bun House concept offers great opportunity for expansion​, with plans to open more satellite Bun House locations within food halls and markets in the near future.
