BunBun Boracay: A Flavorful Fiesta in Paradise

Aside from the stunning beach and powdery, white sands, Boracay is also a haven for gastronomic feast. If you're craving for Asian-inspired bao buns, handmade dim sum, noodles and rice bowls, make sure to check Bun Bun! I have to say that it was an absolute delight for the senses! Tucked away among the island's bustling culinary scene, Bun Bun is a food enthusiast's dream come true. 


During our visit here, we tried a variety in their menu.

Soy Chicken Bun (P228/ 2 buns) – As I sunk my teeth into the pillowy softness of the Soy Chicken Bun, I was transported to umami heaven. The savory soy-glazed chicken inside was a game-changer, setting the tone for the feast ahead. This is one of my favorites here!

Fried Siopao (P228/ 3 pcs) – A crispy revelation awaited us with the Fried Siopao. The exterior boasted a satisfying crunch, giving way to a succulent, flavorful filling. I had my first fried siopao experience during my first visit to Camarines Norte and I kind of have gotten a craving for this. Very seldom am I able to find this in Manila (there's one that I got in Binondo and they say it's also being sold somewhere in Cubao), so if there's an opportunity to get this, I'll sure have it. 

Pork and Shrimp Siomai (P198/ 4 pcs)– Here's a secret: I loovveee siomai! Especially those being offered in Chinese restaurants- it's meaty, flavorful and packed. Bun Bun's Pork and Shrimp Siomai showcased a delicate dance of pork and shrimp, harmonizing perfectly in each bite. It's like a party for your taste buds!

Chicken Gyoza (P198/ 5 pcs)– Crispy edges and succulent chicken – the Chicken Gyoza was a dumpling delight that left us craving for more. Pro tip: Dip it in the accompanying sauce for an extra flavor kick.

Pork Xiao Long Bao (P218/ 4 pcs)– The Pork Xiao Long Bao were soup-filled wonders that burst with rich, savory goodness. I'm not really a fan of xiao long bao- we got it for the experience. Also, I find
theirs lacking of that melt-in-your-mouth feels.

Sesame Chicken Soup (P338)– Need a warm hug for your soul? The Sesame Chicken Soup is the answer. Each spoonful carried the comforting essence of sesame-infused bliss.

Lychee Green Tea (P78-P88)– To cap off our flavor-packed feast, we indulged in the Lychee Green Tea – a refreshing sip that perfectly balanced the richness of our meal. I gotta say I kind of have gotten a liking for Lychee after experiencing this one. I got mine with Yakult! Definitely, a must-try!


Bun Bun  provides a dining experience that is just as stunning as the island itself, in addition to offering outstanding flavors. Your gastronomic journey is enhanced by the chic and rustic rooftop dining area. Imagine mouthwatering morsels, a refreshing tropical wind, and a panoramic vista. By the way, this place is not in the beach front area. It is situated along the main street and going here gave us a glimpse of the other side of the Boracay.
