Nanban is a Japanese-influenced spot that was first opened by MasterChef winner Tim Anderson back in 2011. He’s no longer part of the setup but Nanban is still a reliable destination for rich ramen, crunchy chicken wings, and more. Inspiration comes from near and far on Nanban’s menu. Things like Indo-Caribbean ramen broth, ackee and saltfish fried rice, and scotch bonnet honey all feature. It calls itself ‘Japanese soul food’ that’s firmly grounded in Brixton. We call it a great all-rounder.
