Chef Jay Morjaria is to launch a new Korean-focused concept at Brighton’s Shelter Hall next week.

Called Tiger and Rabbit, the new brand will specialise in Korean barbecue served with rice, lettuce wraps, kimchi and samjang aioli. A range of small plates will also be available, alongside larger fried rice dishes.

In an Instagram post​ announcing the launch, Shelter Hall said: "Jay has transformed inspiration from the ancient Korean fable of a rabbit that creates it's own entertainment by plotting tricks against a tiger and turned it into a mischievous menu that dances tradition and modernity with bold spices, unexpected layers and a true taste for flavour."

Barbecue options will include spicy pork belly; bulgogi steak; and grilled Portobello mushroom. While the small plates menu will feature a dish of crispy tofu with sesame sauce; glass noodle salad; Korean fried chicken; and kimchi pancakes.

The launch of Tiger and Rabbit comes after Morjaria's other Korean-inspired concept, JAE, ended its long-term residency at Untitled bar in London's Dalston in February. JAE, which Morjaria originally pitched on the BBC’s Million Pound Menu​ back in 2018 under the name Dynasty, was billed as Morjaria's take on anju - a Korean term for food consumed with alcohol.

Morjaria also runs pastrami-focused sandwich shop Mamma Pastrama​, which he launched in Soho last year.
