In the meantime, participating as a main member in many Japanese culinary events.
Currently he is head chef at HANNAH but is in Spain opening Sushi Bar HANNAH, using his skills cultivated in London to express Japanese cuisine through the ingredients nurtured in the abundant soil of Spain. Sushi Bar HANNAH is reviewed as the Top 10 Japanese Restaurant in Madrid in 2018.
HANNAH uses fresh local produce along with imported specialised Japanese ingredients to give an authentic and pure experience. Most of the fish we use are locally sourced from Cornwall, nothing from sea life aquarium.
Being the Award Winning Barbate Import, our Tuna is directly received from Spain, which gives an extra distinct butter-like soft taste.
In the meanwhile, being highly skilled, Shimoyama managed to make HANNAH one of the very few restaurants in London that are able to process the over-1kg-sized Eel.
Compared to the plain traditional Japanese dishes, the fine integration of the European and Japanese elements at HANNAH provides a much more complex and original experience that cannot be found in Japan nor elsewhere.
We aim to make your visit to HANNAH both memorable and unique.
