When we talk about Bath in the UK, the first thing that comes across our mind is usually the Roman Bath or the famous Pulteney Bridge. But, Bath is not only famous for that, it is also the birth place of “Sally Lun”.

Do you know Sally Lun?

Coming from a non-English speaking background, when I first heard the term “Sally Lunn”, I thought it was a person’s name. It was only after some explanation done by my British friend then did I realized it’s a name of a type of bun.

A Sally Lunn is a large bun made with a yeast dough, and could be enjoyed with either sweet or savoury accompaniments. The bun has a similar taste and texture to the brioche breads of France, and is first recorded in 1780 in the spa town of Bath in southwest England.

When I was visiting Bath in my last visit to the UK, I finally had a chance to visit the famous “Sally Lunn’s” tea house. It’s extremely crowded on weekends and during lunch hours, so I would strongly recommend you to go either on a weekday, or around 11 to avoid the lunch crowd.

The tea house itself is one of the oldest houses in Bath, and is in the center of the wonderful city of Bath. It’s about a 5-10 mins walk from the Roman bath.

PS. The bun is actually quite big, so be sure you don’t order too much!!
