LDNReview

With two restaurants that bookend Kingsland Road, there’s no doubt that BúnBúnBún is phở mile’s no-brainer Vietnamese option whether you’re near Hoxton or Dalston. Their bún vermicelli noodle salads are an obvious choice and bún chả Hà Nội (pork sausage patties, grilled strips of lemongrass pork, and a crunchy, splintering spring roll) is a bowl of food we’ll never not wolf down. But that’s not all they do. Whole fried sea bass in ginger chilli dressing is tender and crispy, while their grilled meats, from beef to goat, are given the attention they deserve.
