At the Counter x Orange Buffalo & Yum Bun
This week At the Counter we had a street food takeover!
First up The Orange Buffalo to talk about their new site in Hoxton Bar and Kitchen. Hailing from Hull, Mike So and Nick White, set up The Orange Buffalo after a road trip to the U.S. which landed them in a plethora of American dive bars, eating some of the most unfussy, satisfying, and moreish bar foods that only those who have travelled to the USA will understand. Known the world over, New York’s Buffalo wings spoke to them and they made a bet to bring back the sour, spicy, crispy wing with the creamy, salty blue cheese dip to the UK. Deciding to make their own sauce for the wings, Mike and Nick developed a unique yet authentic flavour that has enticed chicken wing enthusiasts from all across London and seen them win the first wing-fest in London.

Next we had Lisa Meyer, founder of Yum Bun. From humble beginnings on Broadway Market to Street Feast and Dinerama, to their new spot in The Kitchen’s in Old Spitalifields Market – there is no denying her buns are YUM! Check them out 7 days a week all around London for the classic pork bun or our new favourite, fried tofu.
