Naban opens in August 2013, hopefully.

Two years after winning MasterChef, American-born Tim Anderson opens Nanban on Shoreditch High Street serving southern Japanese food, ramen, beer, chicken, cake, and other lovely things. Specialising in the regional cuisine of Kyushu Island, where Anderson lived for two years, Naban gets its name from the Japanese term once used to describe European settlers - meaning 'southern barbarian'. At a pre-launch pop-up event - showing us what to expect on the menu at Nanban - diners were given choices of Hitomoji guru-guru - blanched spring onions, wrapped into bundles, served with a sweet miso dip; Iwashi Mentai - grilled sardines stuffed with mentaiko (chilli-cured cod roe); Rafute - pork belly braised in soy sauce, brown sugar, and awamori (Okinawan rice whiskey); and noodles in chicken-pork-seafood stock, topped with stir-fried shellfish and vegetables. Dessert was Mojiko roll cake, a combination of black sesame sponge, banana custard, fresh fruit, and green tea whipped cream.
