Last week I visited Tea and Bun in Plymouth for the first time.
I remember first hearing about the Asian restaurant on Cornwall Street, near Plymouth Market last year - I am not sure whether it had just launched, or people I knew had just starting talking about it…and it took me over a year to get my bottom perched on their stools and tasting their amazing food!
Tea and Bun is a small, cosy little Asian restaurant and it was just bustling with people eating in and ordering food to take away. It was Saturday lunchtime and it was so busy that I thought we were going to have to give up and go elsewhere - but just as we stepped outside we noticed somebody in the window putting their coat on so dashed back inside again. Yay, Tea and Bun was back on!
I ordered jasmine tea, mushroom and tofu ramen and fried mushroom gyoza. Chris had a selection of meaty small dishes! The food was amazing, and I already want to go back and order more gyoza.
I shared a couple of pics on my Instagram and from the reactions, I’m not the only person who loves their food! :D
It’s great to see a small, independent business in the centre of Plymouth doing so well. Small businesses often put their heart and soul into their, erm, businesses (being one myself, and being friends with so many others, I can tell you this first-hand!). And so to see Tea and Bun so busy it was exciting. I am thrilled for them and will be back eating gyoza as soon as I can get there!
