Ju Wei ... All things brined, braised, stewed

ipsedixit Sep 27, 2013 02:44 PM

Ju Wei just opened up in the former space occupied by JN Kitchen and 818 Shakao.

Duck head anyone? Check.
Intestines? Yup?
Goose bowels? Of course!

The cold case makes a biology lab class look appetizing.

Go for the oddities, stay for the porridge.

No printed menus, so I attach pics below.

Cheers.

        And direct karma.

        If China can make all thing LV, Chanel, and Bvlgari, then certainly the US-SGV conglomerate can reciprocate the favor, food-wise.

            Well, from the picture portion of the menu, 100% of it looks good.

            But then again, I could be wrong.

                No, I think 100% of it looks good in this case.

              Well, two weeks later and they've already run an audible. Nothing on their menu is available per se. The only thing they'll cook for you is beef noodle soup. Your other choice is a display case full of enclosed large plastic boxes and a few sealed plastic bags. About a dozen different items, the only ones being recognizable are duck necks and sliced lotus roots. While there is no cooking involved there seems to be some kind of preparation involved. Somebody ordered a bunch of items from the display case, and it took them a good 10 to 15 minutes to package them.
