The latest edition of Wetherspoon’s food menu has been criticized for being “incredibly bland” and “disgraceful”.

The pub chain introduced Bao Buns as part of its affordable small plate range, described as “traditional Asian steamed buns with spicy, crispy chicken”.

Reddit user u/Yougotsnail posted a image of his ‘pathetic’ serving of bao buns on the r/CasualUK subreddit, which has since garnered over 220 comments and 1,500 upvotes from amused regulars who mocked the concoction.

The hungry guest at an unnamed branch of Wetherspoons seemed saddened, though not entirely dismayed, by the buns, captioning: “I didn’t even buy coriander or chilli!” Just some onion! Tasty though, tbf.

The photo shows a pair of rather pale steamed bao buns placed side by side in a basket.

The pub chain introduced Bao Buns as part of its affordable small plate range, described as “traditional Asian steamed buns with spicy, crispy chicken”.

Each bun has been opened to contain a strip of crispy fried chicken atop blobs of Japanese katsu curry sauce.

Most alarming, however, as many Redditors pointed out, is the meager slice of red onion placed beneath the chicken pieces, leading many to wonder why the chefs had bothered to include it in the meal.

In response to the photo, one person wrote: “Just a strip of red onion on one and fuck everything on the other.”

“It’s that kind of attention to detail that makes me wonder what’s really going on in the kitchen.”

Another amazed individual joked: ‘Damn, that’s depressing.’ A goujon in a cardboard fold,” while a third wrote: “I think that lone piece of onion may have been lost on the way to an even less appetizing meal.”

One Brit joked: “That’s why the rest of the world thinks we have no taste and thinks mayonnaise is spicy.”

Meanwhile, two people of Asian descent were offended by the outcome of Wetherspoons’ Chinese-inspired offering.

One said: “People in Asia are crying at this image, including me,” while another joked: “As a person of Chinese descent, I don’t want to have eyes right now.”

In other news, two enthusiastic Wetherspoons fans decided to try out what each branch has to offer and embarked on a mission to visit every store in the UK.

Alan and Agnes Forbes, aged 63 and 46, successfully completed their mission after visiting the chain’s 900 locations across the country in eight years.

The couple became addicted to finding Wetherspoons pubs wherever they went to see the beautiful architecture of many of the buildings; the highest number of branches visited in one day was eight.

But it’s the rugs that the couple say are a “huge draw factor”, with each Spoons having an individually designed pattern to complement the building, area or the person the pub is named after.

Each bespoke rug is handmade on a traditional loom by Devon-based luxury rug maker Axminster Carpets and costs up to £30,000.
