Junsei selects Cleaner Products

Posted by:pete

Cleaner Products are highly delighted to have been selected as supply partners for the wonderful Junsei restaurant in Marylebone. Junsei is the debut restaurant of Chef Aman Lakhiani & Chef Zach Farr.

Chef Aman Lakhiani’s journey to Japan was perhaps the awakening of something vital in his soul. Something buried deep within, through lineage, taste and culture. He was absolutely overwhelmed by the happiness he experienced in the streets of Tokyo, where he ate and drank with the locals, sharing stories and igniting joy and laughter. That was what inspired him to open his debut restaurant in London. To share the experience he has had in Japan. To share his passion and spread love and laughter.

Chef Zach Farr aka The Kitchen Soldier was beyond ecstatic when he got a call from his long time friend for this opportunity. This workaholic couldn’t think of a reason to reject the offer; they’ve spoken about opening their own restaurant for quite some time, but he thought it was just empty promises between two friends. He was then working at a critically acclaimed New York Yakitoriya, Torishin, and opening their own Yakitori Restaurant was a dream come true. First collaborating at culinary school, Chef Zach Farr joined friend Chef Patron Aman Lakhiani to open their debut restaurant Junsei, in London’s Marylebone, specialising in authentic Japanese yakitori.

Our philosophy perfectly marries into the central tenets of yakitori and coaxing astonishing flavours out of the simplest of ingredients. This style of cooking elevates and honours every part of the chicken, meaning that with our zero-waste concept, every part of the chicken is delicately skewered (in over 20 different variations) and grilled over white hot binchotan charcoal, which is the soul of yakitori.

We believe that no dish can be better than its ingredients and that the best ingredients are local grown. Every day we make many decisions about what we eat and every one of our food choices has an ethical and environmental impact.  It is the best of coincidences that good food choices – those that are good for our land and people, for the environment, for the body and mind – are also delicious and enjoyable.

Our talents and experience are diverse, but at Junsei, we’re united by one thing: an overarching passion for Japanese food and hospitality.
