Jay Chou Restaurant

Say Mando pop or Chinese entertainment, and Jay Chou's name comes into mind. Yes, this is the current king of pop for the Chinese entertainment music industry.

And it seems that this singer-producer-song writer & also actor-director has his hands not only in the music industry, but also in the F&B industry. Apparently, he has a string of cafes & restaurants in Taipei, Taiwan... and I was lucky to be able to visit one of them.

Yes, it's Mr J Cafe right in the Medical University in Taipei!

Even before walking into the cafe, there are signs that this cafe-restaurant has links with the talented Jay Chou.

Ok, maybe that is not that clear, but the welcome greetings at the door is a big hint next.

And once inside, one sees a string of items on Mr Jay. And you don't need to be a fan to realise that.

These items are everywhere (or should I say, it seems Jay Chou is everywhere) and if they seem small, then these 2 more will get your attention:

And the can't miss big large poster right at the back of the cafe-restaurant.

This is rather a simple restaurant, except for the many Jay Chou's decorations. Yes, it was quite well done and there are some quite good final touches especially in the design parts. The fans will definitely like a place like this to chill out in their idol's very own cafe/ restaurant.

As for food, all I know is that Mr J serves French & Italian cuisine. However, I can't comment on the food or drinks here as we didn't go there to have a meal.

Instead it was to attend a function upstairs for a launch of something rather interesting by Jay Chou's business partner... and that is coming up next!

    yes, it is. i guess fans can appreciate this place more. for non fans, i guess the place will be rather ordinary? but anyway, many must be fans of his i guess :)
