ChESS provided the necessary seed capital which made it possible for the restaurant JinJiang to successfully launch in Ghent. The chef used to work at the famous Shanghai-based restaurant Jin Jiang before he decided to move to Europe in the eighties. Not even thinking about serving westernized food, he selected nothing but authentic Chinese specialties to put on his menu. We’ve known the chef for years, are fully confident in his cooking and interpersonal skills, and therefore decided to give his restaurant business a boost, both financially and with practical help. In June 2014, the restaurant opened its doors in the very city centre of Ghent, at the Korenlei. We wish him all the luck and we’ll surely count ourselves among his loyal customers.
