If you’ve got a hankering to pinch some soft, pillowy buns, BiteClub’s got the hookup.

Mobile foodist Jeff Tyler (from the North Bay’s Chicago-Style Hot Dogs and Palooza Catering) has launched The Bun Slinger, a bright yellow truck serving up pork belly, steak, chicken, and tofu wrapped in Chinese steamed buns.

Taking a cue from popular SF trucks like Chairman Bao, Tyler does a tasty fusion of grilled meats, spicy aioli, and veggies on the handheld sammies along with kimchi or togarishi (a sort of sweet, salty, spicy rub) fries. For $12, you get three buns and a side of fries.

bunsLook for the Bunslinger at O’Reilly Media in Sebastopol on Thursdays and at the headquarters in Roseland on Wednesdays. You can find his exact schedule and routes online.

  1. SO GOOD! I love Jeff’s food! The togarashi fries are insane! The buns are even better, if that’s possible. Can’t wait to eat again next week.

  2. We ate at the Bun Slinger a few weeks back and hoping things get better. The kimchee fries were VERY fishy and the pork belly bun had a very odd flavor. Hoping these are just growing pains.
