About US

THAI FOOD ASHEVILLE

Bun Intended was founded in 2016 by four friends with a common goal: to serve the best homemade Thai street food. Our menu’s inspiration comes from Isan region of Thailand, where Chef Erica’s parents met and began the family tradition of cooking – we are honored to continue that tradition here in Asheville.

We live by three principles at Bun Intended – everything we cook is homemade, we always serve locally sourced ingredients, and we guarantee an excellent customer experience.
