Judy Joo, the Korean-American chef and TV personality, has opened a second iteration of her wildly successful London restaurant, Jinjuu, in the iconic Hong Kong skyscraper, the California Tower. This will be chef Joo’s first foray into the Asian restaurant market and brings a taste of modern and unique Korean food to the high-class dining culture in Hong Kong.

“Jinjuu is based on the Korean philosophy that drinking should always be accompanied by good food. At Jinjuu, the focus is as much on food as cocktails,” chef Joo said in a statement.

Jinjoo first opened up in London in 2014 and was immediately recognized that year by the Michelin Guide. This location of Jinjuu offers a mix of both classic and street fare, both of which are prevalent in Korean culinary culture.


Examples of menu items include Jinjuu Carnitas Fries, an assortment of Korean Tacos, K-Town Mini Slider Buns, Mandoo - Korean dumplings, Korean Fried Chicken, Ssam Platters, and Bibimbap Bowls. Desserts will be a French-Korean fusion and the bar program will host the largest soju selection in Hong Kong.
