Flesh and Buns

-

Recently I’ve been looking for different places to eat, places where I’ve never been before or places that serve a style of cuisine that i have not tried before. Since I love chicken and meat so much I was in contact with different casual restaurants and found that many I contacted have halal items on the menu.

It was a Thursday night and I arrived without a reservation at 8pm and had to wait 30mins to get a table, so it’s a popular and busy place. Flesh & Buns, from the team behind Bone Daddies, is located within the busy Seven Dials area in Covent Garden. It’s Inspired by Japanese izakayas, roughly translated as a pub or place designed for informal eating and drinking. All restaurants under the Bone Daddies label serve halal chicken.

Once seated I didn’t hang around and wasted no time in ordering.


KOREAN FRIED WINGS £6.5

I won’t get into too much depth with reviews of the other dishes as this was hands down the best thing I ate here, in fact one of the best wings i’ve ever had in ages. The flavours were rich and powerful made by the spicy sticky sauce that covered the wings. The heat was the right about in spice and definitely the highlight of the meal.  10/10

1/2 YOUNG CHICKEN £13
The good things about the chicken is how well it’s cooked, it was very soft and tender and the texture was great, but that was not enough for me as I really did not take well to the overpowered citrus flavours that were dominant in this dish. Despite being presented well, i did not enjoy this dish at all. 4/10

CHICKEN YAKITORI £4.5

A very simple plate. I felt that the chicken lacked much endeavour when it comes to taste and flavours. It’s just grilled chicken. 5/10

SPICY TUNA ROLL £8.8 / PRAWN TEMPURA ROLL £8

In retrospect, i shouldn’t have ordered the sushi as the focus here is about the steamed buns. Not to say that the sushi was not good, it was fresh and tasted good, but having spent over £16 for 2 sets would have been better spent on more buns and wings.

CHOCOLATE FONDANT £6.25

Because i didn’t like the main chicken dish i received the chocolate fondant on the house. It was presented in a unique way, but it was a average dessert. For me the fondant was too soft and light, i prefer it a light more harder and sticky.

Our server was really friendly and attentive during the meal, so service gets 2 thumbs up from me.

So if you are looking for something a bit different to the usual halal offerings, i’d definitely suggest this place, just make sure you get the wings and buns and be adventurous with trying other dishes.

  1. I went inside this store and asked the waiter if the food was halal. I must say the diverse staff were super friendly.

    Not everything was halal, they said the korean wing was though. It turns out I had to leave.

    However, the korean wings was apparently made with a bit of alcohol but they said that the process sort of burns it off. I wasn’t satisfied with the process personally but someone else might be. I am not sure when they implemented this but thought I would let everyone know. They said they use authentic Soya Sauce from Japan which has alcohol. Since then I notice that other shops have alcohol in soya too although not all. This is not a criticism, just wanted to make people aware as things must have changed since this was posted.

    A shame because I was excited to try it out!
