‘Viral’ Korean Street Food Bunsik Opens in Manchester Piccadilly

Queueing in front of the yellow and blue Bunshik building is not something I’m a stranger to. In fact, every time I’ve found myself getting lost exploring the streets of London in the last two years I always find myself back there somehow. So, you can trust I had wide heart-eyes when I saw the big yellow print that spelt out ‘BUNSHIK’ and a never-ending queue of hungry curious folks waiting to try the new hot spot right in the heart of Manchester Piccadilly. 

You know me, there was no chance I could resist temptation, so I decided to take one for the team and get in line.

On The Menu.

Tasty crunchy Korean corn dogs, spicy Ddobokki or hot cup noodles – believe me when I say this, the Manchester street food scene just got a lot tastier!

If you’ve never had one, a Korean Corn Dog is a classic Korean street food filled with cheese and sausage, then coated in crispy panko breadcrumbs. Common toppings include potatoes, diced fries, and crushed ramen noodles. Finally, it all gets fried together till it becomes the perfect golden brown. 

But there’s more… you can also grab a tasty tuna or veg kimbap, honey garlic wings, and even a ‘stupid cheeseburger’ if you’re feeling less adventurous. If you’re a foodie like I am, Bunsik is a must-try!

Wheelchair Accessibility. 

Whilst the entrance to Bunsik is fully accessible, which is an upgrade from its London Branch, there is still much room for improvement. The main issue I found was the lack of accessible tables in the whole room. The chairs and tables are all very tall and so if you are in a wheelchair, you won’t be able to use any of the available table comfortably, leaving you with few options. Either eat outside where the benches are situated ~ almost never ideal in rainy Manchester ~ or take the food to eat elsewhere. 

I understand it’s a ‘street food’ and the layout is probably designed the way it is as a space saving measure, but I believe, one or two lower tables could have been included to make the space more inclusive.
An accessible toilet is also available in the restaurant.

Am I Going Back To Bunsik? 

The real question should be, will I ever not pass by when I’m in the city? When it comes to food I love, I have no self-control. The only thing I’m sure of with Bunsik being in my backyard now, is that my bank account is going to suffer immensely – but at the very least, I’ll be well-fed and happy right!?
