Kevin and I didn’t have much time to grab dinner, but we also didn’t feel like defaulting to any of our usual haunts. I took to Urbanspoon + decided we were going to try Yum Bunz. (What a great name, btw.) We drove to the Westside and prepared our palates for some dim sum.
We placed our orders at the counter and learned Chinese while we waited for our meal.
Kev ordered the Thai green curry bowl and selected chicken and quinoa as its major components. He wasn’t a huge fan of the bowl, but that had nothing to do with Yum Bunz and everything to do with Kevin opting for quinoa instead of rice. I tried it and definitely thought it was tasty, but I would have opted for the jasmine rice instead of the quinoa – which didn’t mix well with the curry in our opinions. Although, I like the option to create your own bowl or order dumplings if you aren’t in the mood for steamed bao (bunzzzzz).
I was, however, in the mood for bunz! At a mere $1.59 each + less than 180 calories per bun, I figured I could try a few. Yum Bunz also serves wine and beer, so naturally we had to partake in that, too.
I tried the yellow curry chicken, Mongolian BBQ (my fav.), and chicken teriyaki bunz (pictured below), and I thought they were excellent! Way better than the ones I sometimes defrost at home from Trader Joe’s. I also devoured the chocolate dessert bun. It’s super simple, but I recommend capping off your meal with it.
