At First and Western, right across the street from Beer Garden is a place called the Bun Shop. It opened a few weeks ago in the space formerly occupied by King Hot Dog They mostly serve puffy buns folded with fillings. This is a much better version than the ones found at Take A Bao
Dommy and I tried a Tomato-katsu, a chicken Katsu and a spicy Pork. they come 2 to an order with sides plus you can get their Chego like seasons fries for $2 extra Both Katsus were fried damn near perfectly and the buns just needed a little something which was solved by adding the Sriracha which was on the table. the spice Pork was decent as well.
We also aded a side of Kimchi Fried Rice which inexplicably came in a enclosed box. you may want to open it when you get to the table so the fried egg doesn't overcook.
What the meal really needed was a beer to go with it, They are apparently working on their ABC Application so someday it would be a nice place to get a beer and noshes.
