Campsie Festival

The annual Campsie Festival (recently changing name from the Campsie Korean Festival to much controversy) is a celebration of the local Korean, Turkish, Lebanese, Fijian and Samoan communities. We loaded ourselves up with 2kg bags of kimchee and enjoyed the street entertainment.

The threatening rain clouds held off until about 3.30pm (the hula dancers were visibly shivering) but a good time was had by all. Our find of the day was Bun King which serves huge steamed buns (bigger than Kim Beazley's fist) filled with pork, garlic chives and/or dried mushrooms for a bargain 70 cents. We've been back since and the place is always packed with locals. We recommend the chive buns (which often sell out). They also have a choice of 2 dishes with rice for a bargain $5.50.

    Absolutely love Bun King and those chive buns. Best steamed buns, they beat BBQ pork ones any day
