Kirin Ichiban’s “Pop-Up” Yatai Restaurant

Kirin Ichiban, Japan’s Prime Brew is delighted to announce the launch of their “pop-up” Yatai in conjunction with the head chefs of London’s Japanese restaurant Yashin sushi & bar and their exciting Kushiage style restaurant set to launch in 2012.

The Kirin Ichiban Yatai will “pop up” for one week only, August 3rd - 8th near Brick Lane and will serve up a selection of quality, traditional KUSHIAGE dishes which are relatively unknown in the UK; delicious Japanese deep -fried skewer delicacies which will be available *with a bottle of crisp Kirin beer for around just £5, bringing affordable quality food and drink to the streets.

Yasuhiro Mineno (ex head chef of Nobu) and Shinya Ikeda, joint owners and Head Chef of Yashin sushi & bar and founders of yet to be opened Kushiage style restaurant in Central London in early 2012 have worked carefully with Kirin Ichiban to create a mouth-watering market style menu offering Londoners some authentic flavours and delights from their Japanese street menu.  Diners will also be able to vote for their favourite short film, from four finalists to the Kirin First Cut short film competition, the winner of which will be announced at the 55th BFI London Short film festival in partnership with American Express (12th-27th October).

Customers can choose from selection of three delicious Kushiage deep-fried skewer dishes served on bamboo sticks and a bottle of beer for around five pounds.  Food and drink enthusiasts can choose from over ten mouth-watering combinations including; pork with Japanese Worcester sauce, marinated lamb with saikyo miso, asparagus with sea salt and lemon, pickled tomato and slightly hot green pepper with lemon to name a few.  

The pop up Kirin Yatai will also be showing finalists work from the Kirin First Cut film competition bringing together the old traditions of Japan with the new creativity and technology of short films.
Japan’s Prime Brew, Kirin Ichiban is not your average beer: it’s made by the unique “Ichiban Shibori Process” which literally translated means “First press”.  For Kirin, there is no other way, its beer at its purest.

Kirin Ichiban’s rich history spans over 100 years and is steeped in tradition and culture. From its origins in 1888, through to its arrival in the UK in 1993, the legendary brew has consistently won the favour of those seeking something different and who value quality. Not only does it have the most expensive brewing process in the World but a truly unique approach to creating beer, ‘First Press’.
