Diners will be able to vote for their favourite short film from a shortlist of four that will be shown at the BFI film festival in October.
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.
