Bunny chow scoops innovative breakfast award


6 April 2016

Inspired by South Africa’s humble bunny chow – traditionally a curry served in a hollowed-out loaf of bread – the Full English Bunny has been named the winner of the Innovative Breakfast award category in the British Best Breakfast Awards.

The Full English Bunny is served at an establishment called Bunnychow in London. It contains the usual breakfast go-to items such as sausage, bacon, mushrooms, beans, tomato, black pudding and fried egg in a hollowed-out brioche.

“We chose the Full English Bunny because we’d never seen anything like it before,” reads the Shake Up Your Wake Up website. “With more and more people looking for things they can eat quickly and on the move, we felt the bunny was an ideal solution.”

The Shake Up Your Wake Up campaign comes from Britain’s Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board. It ran British Breakfast Week in January this year, during which the bunny was selected in its awards.

Bunnychow’s website notes that the original meal hails from Durban, and was created in the 1940s. “Every Durbanite loves a bunny chow,” it reads. “We loved them too, so we created our take on a bunny and have been serving them up to the good people of London since 2013.”

Other uniquely South African bunnies served at Bunnychow include chakalaka chicken and bobotie meatballs.
