Mr Ji moves Soho reopening to December

Due to the newly announced government restrictions, Taiwanese inspired Soho restaurant Mr Ji will now reopen its doors in December with a new look and a brand new, extended menu.

Founder Samuel Haim has refurbished the space to transform Mr Ji from a grab-and-go spot to a buzzy restaurant with table service. Haim has worked closely with friends Ana Gonçalves and Zijun Meng of TA TA Eatery and TOU on the redesign and menu development.

Taking inspiration from Taiwanese canteens for the daytime and late-night, stripped back bars for the evening, Mr Ji will offer a more refined, expanded menu that is still centred around the Taiwanese inspired fried chicken for which Mr Ji is known, as well as a new and forward-thinking cocktail menu.

Haim said, “We’re really disappointed that we’ve had to postpone the opening of Mr Ji, but I’m more determined than ever to bring the lively evening vibe back to Soho once we’re able to throw open Mr Ji’s doors.

'After many evenings at TA TA Eatery with Ana and Meng, we decided to work together to make Mr Ji a place where guests can sit down and get stuck in to dinner with friends, in a space that has a real buzz just like the Taiwanese spots I fell in love with on my travels.”
