This week on a brand new episode of The Main Course, hosts Alexes McLaughlan and Phillip Gilmour welcome the dynamic duo behind UMi Bushwick to the studio. UMi Bushwick is a pop-up stop selling late night buns out of a bakery called Sweet & Shiny. Founded by two best friends from NYU, Renel Sun and Phoebe Tran, who decided to put their education on hold in February 2014 to explore their culinary ventures abroad, they share their trials and tribulations behind becoming successful vendors while away on a study abroad program. UMi Bushwick aims to tell stories of places lived in or traveled to: China, Japan, Vietnam, and California. This program was brought to you by Edwards VA Ham.
“UMi Bushwick is a new late night pop up at Sweet & Shiny… selling buns with fillings inspired by places that we’ve lived or traveled to so each bun has a different story behind it.”
—Phoebe Tran on The Main Course
“If we do scale up and have other people serving the food for us they won’t necessarily feel the food the way we do and prepare it with the same kind of care and tell the stories behind each one.”
—Renel Sun on The Main Course
