FIND US

The Bunny Bar

Opening in late September 2014 at 74 Wardour Street in Soho, London, we’ll be open 7 days a week from breakfast through to late in the evening. We’re pretty pleased with our breakfast bunnys so be sure to grab one of those if you need to set your day up the right way. Then grab a lunchtime or dinner bunny and you’ve got yourself a pretty good day, lined up.

The Bunnychow TRUCK

We’ve been trucking around London since 2013, serving up ‘bunnys’ at markets and street food events. Occasionally we manage to escape the city for some big festival fun; this year we’ve been everywhere from Glastonbury to Ascot and if you keep an eye on our truck calendar you’ll be able to see where we’re off to next.

We’re currently occupying a shipping container at Boxpark, Shoreditch, London; you’ll find us on the upper floor where we’re serving up Bunnys, beers, wine, coffee and our bunny muffins, aka Buffins!

THE FOOD

1900s

During the early 1900s the workers start to own houses and move from the sugar plantations into central Durban. Lunch is mainly roti breads and beans. Tasty but messy.

next
Early 1940s

The Indian community in Durban is now established shop and restaurant owners. They invent the Bunny Chow (filled with beans and lentils) to give people a great tasting meal that can be eaten on the move and without plates or cutlery.

ORIGINAL STREET FOOD

WHAT'S UP

The original bunny chow was created in Durban, South Africa in the 1940's and every Durbanite loves a bunny chow. We loved them too, so we created our take on a 'bunny' and have been serving them up to the good people of London, since 2013.
