Hot Asian Buns is known to be one of the only places with hot Asian bao buns that are handmade from scratch with all natural ingredients. Each of their fluffy buns are made to order with reinvented original recipes.
Hot Asian Buns are currently a food truck, but do stationary pop ups. They’re currently at Poké Stop near UCF until Friday, January 31, 2020 before the food truck is ready to hit the road again! We were glad to taste almost everything on the menu.
Start your meal with Loaded Kimchi Fries topped with Gochujang, horsey sauce, queso fresco, sesame, and scallions. Hear me out. When thinking of something with kimchi, I would think it would overpower the fries. However, it adds a nice touch and the flavors blend well with all the other toppings delivered to your palate with some crispy fries.
Pork Asada includes citrus roasted pork, mojo aioli, pickled onions, chicharrones, and cilantro. This has such wonderful flavors, which remind me of authentic Mexican tacos. My mind and tastebuds were so confused when eating this and I’m ok with that. This is one for the books and I’d love for more toppings and lime on top.
Korean Fried Chicken is a spicy item on the menu with Gochujang, creamy slaw, sesame, and scallions. Crispy with the right amount of sauce, which says a lot because many places add too much sauces and makes it overpowering.
12 Hour Smoked Brisket with kimchi, horsey sauce, daikon, and scallions is another favorite of mine. Not sure if I like this more than the Pork Asada or not. Maybe I love them equally. Try both this and the Pork Asada, then let me know which one is your favorite.
Pork Belly Confit topped with pickled mustard greens, hoisin sauce, peanut powder, and cilantro. This pork belly is so moist, but I wish it was larger… only because I love pork belly. Although the peanut powder adds a nice crunch, it would be an interesting twist if this pork belly had a crispy skin to it and add an additional crunch. Yet, I don’t think it would be as healthy as this bao.
Don’t stop now with your eating because we sure didn’t. Instead, we had the Thai Tea Crème Brûlée with torched sugar and lime zest. This is one of the best crème brûlées I have ever had and it’s so great being unique with the Thai tea flavors.
