‘Japanese burrito' bar to open in London

London is set to see the launch of what is claimed to be the UK's first Japanese burrito bar, Hai Street Kitchen & Co in March.

The fast casual dining concept will open in Leadenhall Market, and will be the world's first Hai Street Kitchen & Co, followed by a US opening in Philadelphia this spring and two more sites in the UK later this year.

Designed along the lines of a burrito bar, diners first choose whether they want a burrito-style sushi rice roll or bowl (rice or salad), before choosing a filling, which includes chicken or fish katsu, grilled pork belly, salmon pastrami, flank steak or roasted carrot for vegetarians and vegans.

The executive chef is Takao Iinuma, who has also created a complementary range of side dishes including Renkon chips, tomato bisque and miso soup.
