Nanban Express serves up katsu sandos and salads on Brixton's Electric Lane


If you've been craving the amazing katsu sandwiches chef Tim Anderson has been posting on Instagram, then the good news is he's now opened a place where you can get them.

Nanban have just opened Nanban Express, a hatch on Brixton's Electric Lane, serving up what they're calling "a grab-and-go menu of Japanese sandwiches and salads". The hatch, which opened last week, will be open for business from Tuesday to Saturday during the day from 12-3pm.

On the menu you'll find three katsu sandwiches - classic pork with shredded cabbage, tonkatsu sauce and Japanese mayo; chicken curry with fried chicken thigh, curry mayo and pickled ginger and a gorgeous sounding veggie option of Sweet miso aubergine with honey miso mayo.

There are also three takeaway salads on offer:

  • Spicy heritage tomatoes with ponzu dressing and shichimi
  • Poached chicken thigh with roasted sesame dressing
  • Roasted Asian aubergine with lime ponzu dressing and fresh mint

Everything's a fiver (they only take card payment) and we'd like a selection of it right now please.
