Jurin Xpress


Not too long ago while I was in Penang, I had the opportunity to hang out at Jurin Express. It's a Japanese eatery in Gurney. The moment I stepped in, I wanted to just lay down and spread myself on their large comfy seats. While I like their seats, there were a few things that left me wondering.

First was the characters on the wall. Is it japanese? It looks like chinese to me. I'm just confused. I can fully understand if they put japanese characters on the wall but if it's mandarin, which it certainly looks like, why? i did not like the wall.

Moving away from the wall of confusion, there are two sections at Jurin and is separated by a partition filled with nice with shinny pebble stones. They even have lightings to make the stones look like their glowing. I thought this part of the eatery was awesome. Simple yet elegant.


There is also this bar top; it looked like one. I think it's meant for those who just wana drink.

I couldn't remember what we ordered but when the food came, I thought the presentation was normal. nothing special about it. It tastes good though :) better than 'Prison' - located in Leith Street.

The baby octopus and salmon were good; nicely done I'd say XD it felt like I was on cloud 9.

Reasonable pricing, good service, good food, not too bad ambiance; I might go back there again.
