One of our initiatives for introducing Japan to the world has created a culture in London. We achieved great success in London with ENGAWA and collaborated with Soho House for PEN YEN. These are excellent examples of organic collaboration between ancient Japanese culture and British traditions. We are operating exciting businesses, aiming to achieve the same success with various cultures and peoples around the world.
We opened the Japanese restaurant "AKIRA" on the 1st floor of JAPAN HOUSE London as a place to introduce Japanese food culture. Under the direction of Akira Shimizu, the chef of the London restaurant "ENGAWA" that Salt Group has been working on since 2015, we offer creative skewers, exciting charcoal dishes, and imaginative sushi and chargrilled kushiyaki skewers made from umami-rich wagyu beef, focusing on the traditional Japanese culture of roaring robata (charcoal grill) and sushi.
THE KOBE BEEF RESTAURANT Located on the premises of Ham Yard Hotel in Soho, ENGAWA is a Japanese restaurant that serves original dishes featuring Kobe beef. It is the world’s first concept-based restaurant, which imports the cattle from Japan whole and offers various cuts in original dishes created by the chef.
PEN YEN SOHO FARMHOUSE
We opened this Japanese restaurant in Oxfordshire at Soho Farmhouse, operated by Soho House, a members-only club. The restaurant adds elements of Korean and Chinese cuisine to Japanese dishes. The food is cooked in an open kitchen, which is partitioned into sections for a grill, a teppanyaki grill, and an oven. In winter, the restaurant offers an indoor ice skating rink with dining for 100 people. In summer, it opens its roof to offer tables for 200, including outdoor seating.
