BunnyChow Goes Gluten Free

durban-bunny
 When you work in social media and in the food industry, thousands of photos of food pass you by every day. To be honest, it’s surprising I’m not the size of a house, because great photo photography has the kind of affect that when you lock eyes, your stomach rumbles and you’re already counting down the minutes ’til your next food interval.

BunnyChow has that effect on me, and has done since it opened in Soho last year. For those of you who don’t know BunnyChow is a South African street-food concept. They take freshly baked loaves, hollowed out and fill them with piping hot stews and curries.

 

Since it’s opening, BunnyChow has continued to be a little temptress. As much as I enjoy seeing your photos plastered over social media, guys –  I can’t eat bread! *Sobs into a dry loaf of gluten free bread*

Oh, but wait. Gluten free friends rejoice! Sourced from a local Brixton bakery, BunnyChow now offer gluten free loaves! And what’s even better, is all their fillings are naturally gluten free! * Choir sings hallelujah*

When I was invited to their press event to launch their new menu, I couldn’t RSVP faster.

Here’s what we enjoyed:

1 x Gluten Free Durban – South African Mutton Curry (£5) 

1 x Gluten Free Chakalaka – Spicy Chicken and Tomato (£5)

1 x portion of fried kale (£1)

Selection on cocktails (£4 each)

 

What surprised us the most was the combination of portion size and price. Although typically a lunch hot spot, BunnyChow is open until late, and so provides the perfect place for dinner or a quick snack before or after a few drinks.

Bunnys were filled with generous filling of huge chunks of meat on a bed of rice. As the hot filling is scooped into the loaf, the bread begins to absorb the flavour creating an incredibly moreish and incredibly filling dinner. Not only were the gluten free loaves absorbent, they were also soft, just as you’d expect a standard freshly baked loaf would be. My gluten free friends will know how important this is, so hats of BunnyChow for getting this so right.

In addition to this, Bunnychow have also introduced a range of freshly pressed juices, made with exotic ingredients and vibrant fruits. We enjoyed a few pastel coloured cocktails served in Kilner jars, which went down very well after a long day in the office, and finished with some specialty chocolate.

I can’t praise this place enough for price, position and taste. Working in Soho, I know where my weekly treat is going to be. For more food porn, follow them @TheBunnyChow
