Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Jinjuu – which translates as ‘pearl’ in English – is a modern Korean restaurant with celebrity chef Judy Joo at the helm. The menu encompasses both traditional and contemporary fare, with highlights including anju (food that is great to enjoy with a drink) such as tacos, bulgogi sliders and mouth-watering carnitas fries, in addition to ssam sharing platters of succulent bo ssam pork belly and braised short rib, among others. There’s also the famed Korean fried chicken, which no one should leave without trying. The ground-floor bar offers a more casual dining environment from which to enjoy Jinjuu’s delicious cuisine. On select evenings, the resident DJs hit the decks from 9.30pm, spinning a mixture of soulful house and funk, and transforming Jinjuu into a vibrant late-night venue. Downstairs, in the main dining room, the restaurant’s open kitchen and Korean artwork provide unparalleled theatre, making it an ideal spot to delight in a sophisticated dinner with friends.
