Yatai launches at Brighton’s Shelter Hall in late September

In a short space of time, Brighton’s Shelter Hall has established itself as one of the city’s most dynamic food and drink venues, writes Nick Mosley.

You grab a table and order what you want and pay through the app on your phone. It’s a brilliantly simple idea that also means everyone at your table can eat and drink exactly what they want — Vietnamese, Italian pizza, Kenny Tutt retro burgers, California fusion, fried chicken — or mix and match… I mean , why not have an Asian summer roll with truffle cheese triple cooked fries?

I love the buzzing atmosphere of the venue from breakfast until late in the evening – the team just got it right whether you’re coming for a coffee, a beer and a snack, a cocktail in the Skylark lounge bar or to share a service à la française with dishes from different cuisines that would blow away even the extravagant gourmet Prince Regent.

If you’ve been to other food halls now, you might think the concept is just hype and not substance. For my part, I’ve had dismal experiences at food halls in London and felt like I’ve been mugged – rotten, poor quality fried food and a steep price tag. The Shelter Hall is not like that at all – it’s run by a team that really cares about presenting great food, made with passion by innovative chefs and really represents good value for money. I need to know as I have worked with some of the current Shelter Hall team in various capacities over the past 20 years and I can vouch for their integrity and enthusiasm for great food, drink and hospitality.

While I’m personally an obsessed fan of Sear by Salt Shed cuisine, I always get excited when a new Shelter Hall kitchen opens, so as a lover of all things Japanese – especially food – the launch of the new Yatai kitchen on Wednesday The September 28th is high on my food agenda.

The Argus: Donburi and Katsu dishes will be available at Yatai starting September 28th

Yatai – the Japanese word for street food cart – has been serving Londoners a taste of traditional Japanese cuisine at home since lockdown began. Yatai’s chef Angelo Sato presents traditional Japanese dishes with a menu that includes classically prepared donburis – a rice bowl filled with meat, seafood or vegetables – and katsu curries with panko crumbs.

Angelo really knows his stuff. Before founding Yatai, he worked at Michelin-starred restaurants in Tokyo, New York and London, most recently as Executive Chef at Tom Sellers’ two-Michelin-starred Story restaurant.

We chatted briefly and he told me that Yatai’s mission has always been clear: to create high-quality, authentic Japanese dishes that don’t compromise on premium ingredients or classic cooking techniques, at an affordable price tag that’s comparable to that of big chains can keep up.

In his first move outside of the capital, Angelo is bringing Yatai with him for a four-month stay at Shelter Hall, although I have my fingers crossed that he stays here for much longer.
