As we’ve heard in previous episodes, Bushwick is one of Brooklyn’s rising culinary epicenters. One of the things that makes the scene here so dynamic is that Bushwick’s restaurants don’t just serve good food—they reflect the culinary and artistic identities of visionary chefs with roots that range from right here in the city, to communities around the world. This week, we’re kicking off a two-part run about Vietnamese restaurants in Bushwick by sitting down with the chef behind one of the neighborhood’s most fiercely original restaurants: Bunker.

AFTER THE EPISODE:

We’d like to extend our sincere thanks to Jimmy and the Bunker team for taking some time out of a hectic prep schedule to take us behind the scenes of the restaurant. To learn more, follow Bunker on Instagram, check out their website, or visit them for yourself at 99 Scott Ave.

Of course, we’d also like to thank you for tuning in (and for bearing with Luke as he fumbled everything from Vietnamese to French this episode). We’ll be back next week with another story you won’t want to miss. In the meantime, did you know Bushwick Podcast is made by people like you? We’d love your feedback, and your help.
