We were much impressed with what Restaurateur Johan Lieuw has achieved at his Junction restaurant located in Claremont Village. Here he has put together a fusion of Korean and California cuisines. We were in Claremont to take part in its Restaurant Week July 10-19 and our luncheon at the Junction was an educational experience.
The menu is most original with appetizers listed as "First" followed by entrees listed as "Second". Then there is "Off the Truck" specialties ranging from a Korean BBQ Taco to Ciabatta Philly sandwich. Or here you might select a Burrito or Kimchi fried rice.
Appetizers range from ginger butter escargot to oriental chicken salad and entrees from stewed lamb shank to short rib goulash.
The menu lists a large selection of vegetarian items.
The Junction also has a full bar and here items for quick snacks.
Johan and Chi Lieuw also operate the Red Hot Kitchen in Loma Linda.
The Junction is located at 1 North Indian Hill Blvd. in the Claremont Village district. It is open seven days a week. For more information call 909 626-5100.
