A Japanese street food restaurant is to open today (17 December) on Hackney’s Broadway Market.

Mio Yatai will ‘bring a taste of Japan to the London Fields, Hoxton and Haggerston neighbourhoods’, and feature ‘unapologetically vibrant flavours [served] within a clean and modern space’.

The restaurant will have 46 covers, and include a counter dining area.

Mio Yatai’s menu has been overseen by founder Ihsan Tuncay, and is ‘inspired by the no-fuss attitude that comes with the street food scene’.

The menu will be divided into four sections: bites and salads; ramen; charcoal oven, and wok and fry.

Dishes will include pulled beef cheek spring rolls with sweet chilli; tonkatsu barbecue pork; soft shell crab tacos with chilli, avocado and mango; and tuna tataki with wasabi mayonnaise.

The dessert list will feature a mochi (Japanese rice cake); as well as a selection of ice creams including miso, matcha or black sesame flavour.

Drinks, meanwhile, will include Japanese beer Kirin Ichiban; Haku craft vodka; Yamazaki single malt whisky; and sake.

Tuncay also owns Spanish tapas restaurant El Ganso Café on Broadway Market, which he operates in partnership with chef Marcelo Sánchez Cabrera.
