I have to say, I was pretty dubious when the girl suggested that we visit Jinjuu for our monthly lunch date.
After all, our last couple of 'long lunches' had been at Michelin starred restaurants.
I had no real reason to be suspect about the Korean fusion joint, the girl had recently been with workmates and was really keen to get my thoughts about the food. Now, I'm not saying that I don't trust the girl's judgement when it comes to food, it's just that I couldn't see a place called Jinjuu floating my boat.
Then there was the fact that it was in LKF.
A fact that had me completely confused when I initially tried to find Jinjuu in it's listed address of the California Tower - a spot that I know well. Jinjuu is 'technically' in the California Tower, but in reality is on street level, just around the corner from the tower's main entrance.
As I walked into the Judy Joo owned restaurant, I was very much reminded of the fact that LKF is Hong Kong's party district. On one side of the entrance was your typical counter gracing restaurant entrances worldwide, and on the other was a DJ booth, with electronic decks at the ready for the setting of the sun and presumably the transformation of Jinjuu from restaurant to hip bar.
