There's a new kid in town at Boxpark Shoreditch. The "katsu connoisseurs" of the capital have arrived and they're serving up delicious Japanese dishes. It's time to meet Rainbo.
Tell us who you are and what you do.
We are Rainbo, and we're all about good food, good vibes, and great service. We are dumpling specialists and katsu connoisseurs, and we're fresh, vibrant and unique. This is Japanese soul food at its finest.
Which song best sums up your brand?
Jocelyn Brown - Somebody Else's Guy/Gyoza
What can customers expect from you at Boxpark Shoreditch?
The best gyoza and katsu dishes this side of Tokyo!
What is your favourite item on your menu?
That's like choosing between your children, but with a gun to the head it would have to be our first love - gyoza! Ideally, a tray of eight mixed gyoza with all the trimmings.
What's your Shoreditch top tip?
Avoid all dumpling joints other than those at Boxpark.
What does the future hold for Rainbo?
We started with a humble food truck and have been steadily growing ever since. We've been working towards a Boxpark site for some time, and the plan now is more of the same. Our mission is to spread joy to the world through umami, and we're thinking BIG!
