LIN’S 23RD. My babe Lin turned 23rd this month!! She gathered a bunch of her close friends to have a small affair over dinner. I picked a few spots for her to choose from, but she eventually went with this place that’s been on my list for a couple of months-and it was a m a z i n g.
Joo bar is a korean fusion tapas place, but the menu was 80% Korean from what i read, besides a few fusion items. It was pretty dimly lit, but the interior was still pretty and intimate. We had about 8 items and 2 really good Makgeolli(korean rice wine) slushies to share. The honey butter chicken and seafood jeon(pancakes) were my favourites. Definitely a place worth a shot if you’re looking for a cosy setting.
We went to Bar Stories afterwards for a few more drinks-they make bespoke cocktails, so there’s no menu and you just let the bartender know your preferred taste palette and they’ll concoct one on the spot for you. I wanted a gin based fruit+sour one, and they made a lovely rose grape cocktail for me, super delicious.
Happy Birthday again babe!!
