About US


Bun Intended was founded in 2016 by three friends with a common goal: to serve the best homemade Thai street food specializing in steamed buns. Our menu’s inspiration comes from the Isaan region of Thailand, where Chef Shorty’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.
