Vegetarian London: Jinjuu Restaurant Review

In this series,we review restaurants from an entirely vegetarian angle. While some restaurants will be specifically vegetarian, others will be mainstream. Well be tasting everything from veggie burgers, to posh meat-free menus. Along the way, well try to find out, as far as possible, whether chicken stock, cheese made from animal rennet, gelatine, fish sauce and so on are not lurking in the supposedly vegetarian dishes.

Jinjuu restaurant interior

Londonist Rating:

Jinjuu is a hoot. Theres much that we liked about this contemporary Korean newcomer, from the vibe of the place to the vibrancy of its food. Tucked away in the now pedestrianised Kingly Street, it opened just a couple of months ago. The cool, atmospheric venue is split over two floors: a bar with stools, benches and restaurant-style seating at the ground level, and a restaurant with open-view kitchen in the basement. Both rock a hip, grungy look that references Americas street food trucks, the usual bare-brick-walls-and-exposed-piping shtick given a twist with bright graffiti art and moody lighting.

Jinjuu which means pearl (a delicate, old-fashioned word at odds with its hip urban surroundings) is co-owned by Korean-American Judy Joo, who has several sparkly culinary feathers to her name dipped in celebrity gold dust. Shes a regular face on the Cooking Channel USA, Food Network USA and UK, the only female Iron Chef UK, and also a judge on that programme. A former recipe developer for Saveur food magazine, shes worked at the Restaurant Gordon Ramsay and, more recently, as executive chef at the Playboy Club London. In the kitchen here, however, is British-born head chef Andrew Hales whom Joo worked with at the Playboy Club. Hes put his French fine dining background to one side, as the cooking is centred on American interpretations of Korean street food classics and Korean interpretations of American dirty food. Its the sort of rough-and-ready, big flavoured grub thats been popularised by Korean-American street vendors from Los Angeles to New York though the veggie options are more saintly than guilt-inducing (mores the pity).

Miso-flavoured portobello mushroom tacos

Drinks are a strong point, so arrive early to try the imaginative Korean-influenced cocktails, soju (vodka-like Korean spirit) innovatively infused with a few different flavours, and Asian beers. Korean bloody mary, made from kimchi paste (without fish), celery and black pepper-infused soju and Korean chilli flakes will kick your appetite into shape with its loud, look-at-me chilli hit and gorgeously savoury layered flavours. (Beware the cute little cone of shrimp chips attached to it though). Vegetarian anju small dishes consumed with alcohol consist of just edamame beans and a couple of salads. Then there are tacos, dumplings, stir-fried sweet potato noodles with vegetables and eggs, bibimbap (stone rice bowl with vegetables, eggs and crispy marinated tofu), a barbecue sharing platter, and half a dozen salads and side vegetables. Marked with a V, none of these, were told, contain fish sauce. However, theres no exciting meat-free equivalent to their signature dishes of sliders, prawn pops and fried chicken.

Prepare to get your hands dirty (though we squeamishly opted for cutlery) for small, soft tacos heaped with miso-spiked portobello mushrooms, tiny black beans, buttery avocado slices and curls of kale given a sharp kick by an overload of sour cream (hence the cutlery). The miso that the mushrooms are cooked in is barely discernible, and the tacos are more straightforwardly Mexican-influenced than Korean-tasting. We like their fresh, verdant taste but theyre the mellowest, most low-key of all the dishes. More typical of the strident flavours to follow is a lively dipping sauce made from soy sauce, sesame oil, vinegar, chilli and garlic. A LOT of garlic. It comes with substantial yet light mandoo dumplings stuffed with vegetables, tofu and sweet potato noodles.

Ian McKellen’s porky problem

Posted: at 11:50 pm


without comments

Despite being vegetarian for the last 30 years, Sir Ian McKellen admits he struggles to ''resist'' eating bacon and pork pies because he loves the taste of them so much.

Sir Ian McKellen finds it ''very difficult to resist'' bacon and pork pies, despite being vegetarian.

The 75-year-old actor is pleased he gave up eating meat 30 years ago because he discovered it was the reason he was getting constant headaches, but the 'Hobbit' actor cannot always deny himself the opportunity to chow down on a delicious pork-based product now and again.

He said: ''As a declared vegetarian, I make a very good Quorn shepherd's pie. I stopped eating meat about 30 years ago and the headaches that I'd had since childhood vanished overnight.

''My indigestion got better, too. Though I find bacon and pork pies very difficult to resist.''

As well as a lack of meat in the star's life, he is also not too bothered about drinking alcohol and hot caffeine-filled beverages which comes from his younger years as he didn't even try a cup of tea until he turned 18 years old.

He added to Esquire's Big Black Book magazine: ''I grew up in a teetotal house. I never drank tea, coffee or alcohol until I was 18, and I can do without them easily.

''That sounds like I'm really in charge of my life. I'm not at all.''

Vegetarians have lower risk of colorectal cancer, study finds

Posted: at 11:50 pm

Vegetarian diet tied to reduced risk for colorectal cancer

Vegetarians, rejoice. A new health study says eating all those plants may cut your risk for colorectal cancer the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. by about 20 percent. For the study, published this month in the online edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association publication Internal Medicine, researchers kept track of 77,000 men and women over the course of seven years. Roughly half of the participants were meat-eaters, and the others fell into four vegetarian-like groups: semi-vegetarians (ate meat less than once a week), pesco-vegetarians (ate fish but not other meat), lacto-ovo vegetarians (ate eggs and dairy but no meat) and vegans (no meat, no dairy, no eggs).

After seven years vegetarians were found to be less likely to develop the disease compared to participants who ate meat, but pesco-vegetarians, in particular, came out the best. All vegetarians together had on average a 22-percent reduction in the risk of developing colorectal cancer, compared with non-vegetarians, lead researcher Dr. Michael Orlich said, according to CBS. Those who ate fish, on the other hand, saw a 43-percent reduction rate. Experts noted that nevertheless there is still no concrete evidence that this reduction in colorectal cancer is due to diet.
