Ju-Rin, Crows Nest

I was catching up with two of my favourite people for lunch, Uncle and his lovely wife E. They suggested Ju-rin which is the sister restaurant of Hana-Jurin which is located in Crows Nest. To be honest, I don’t eat in Crows Nest very often so didn’t even know the restaurant existed. I have eaten at Sakanaya before but that was many many years ago.

Ju-rin offers diners special bento box which can be ordered at lunch times and has a great selection of options including tempura, sashimi, teriyaki beef, chicken which also includes miso soup, chawanmushi, seasonal appetisers and a bowl of rice.

I knew exactly what I wanted as I have been craving it for a while, chicken kaarage. The chicken karaage had a light batter and the meat was incredibly moist and tender. It totally hit the spot!

The chawanmushi, Japanese steamed egg dish was incredibly smooth and silky. I would have happily eaten another serving.

The miso soup which came with the lunch set was also tasty.

E had the sashimi set, the sashimi looked incredibly fresh and plump! Will definitely have to come back and try their sashimi / sushi next time.

With the lunch set, we were also given dessert – vanilla ice cream. It was ok, I think green tea ice cream would have been infinitely better.

It was relatively quiet that day, service was good and food was delicious and reasonably priced. Worth coming back, if only I had discovered this place earlier! Nevertheless, there are a lot of Japanese restaurants here in Hong Kong, so no doubt I will have my fix!

    I love Ju-Rin – it’s the perfect weekend lunch spot for me as it’s just up the road 🙂 I see heaps of people getting the lunch bento box but I can’t go past their ox tongue udon especially in winter!
