Buns & Bones is a relatively new spot in Madrid’s growing (and uber-trendy) street food scene. Located in an old fish monger’s stall in the classic Mercado de Anton Martin, Buns & Bones serves simple and informal Asian-fusion bites with a creative touch and market-fresh ingredients.
As you can guess by the name, the menu is broken down into, well…buns and bones! The buns are bao, fluffy steamed buns popular in China and Vietnam stuffed with fillings like short ribs marinated in Chinese five-spice, Peking-style duck, or slow-cooked pork belly. There are also some buns with creative Western flavors like crab with romesco sauce or tempura-fried shrimp. The bones part of the menu is a selection of grilled meats like Argentinean churrasco, porterhouse steaks, ribs, and fresh lobster cooked on the seductive charcoal you see in the window as you approach.
