3) Korean Chicken Wings
In a city known for wings, these are some of the best around. They are served crispy with a sumptuous sauce of your choice: gochujang, soy-garlic or sweet-sambal. Sesame seeds and scallions are then added to bring out even more flavor.
4) Unique Atmosphere
ButaPub is set in the basement of the German House which provides a trendy and vintage atmosphere. There is a lounge space, pool table room, stage for bands, outdoor seating and a magnificent bar area that plays host to a tasty selection of craft brews.
5) Pork Belly Steam Buns
These pillowy delights come with hearty pieces of pork belly that are topped with pickled vegetables. What gives this dish extra flavor though is the togarashi mayo that is layered over the pork. Togarashi is a Japanese chile-based spice blend that gives the mayo some kick.
