Glittering taste of the East in Shoreditch

UBA, a vibey new Pan Asian restaurant taking most of its food cues from Japan, opens at the Hart Shoreditch hotel in Great Eastern Street on Tuesday next week.

Globetrotting chef Paul Greening (ex-Aqua Kyoto and Novikov) is said to be inspired by his travels to Tokyo, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Singapore. The restaurant’s interior is decked out in red and gold, and the party atmosphere will be cranked up with DJ sets.

The menu ranges from sashimi and new-style sushi to fluffy hirata buns and dim sum, gyoza and ramen. Signature dishes include Stuffed boneless chicken wings with coriander, lime and ginger miso dip; and Spicy salmon tartare served on an ice plate with Japanese herbs, salmon roe and nori rice crackers. Larger sharing plates from the robata and teppanyaki grills include Yuzu shisho marinade lamb cutlets with nashi pear tomato miso and kimchi; Yakiniku beef ribeye with sweet potato nest, onion miso and wasabi furikake; and Crispy salmon belly with gochujang brown butter ponzu.

UBA is from Tony Habre’s Middle East-based Addmind Group, which also operates Sucre in Soho and Clap in Knightsbridge. A special soft launch offer next week has 25% off food bills plus a complimentary cocktail if you reserve online and quote UBA SOFT LAUNCH.
