Deja Vu – Jay Chou’s Themed Restaurant In Taipei, Taiwan

Taiwan is full of fun cool themed restaurants. If you are a Jay Chou Fan, Deja Vu is one themed restaurant you must visit when you are at Taipei, Taiwan! A joint venture by Jay Chou (周杰伦), and a magician, Liu Qian (刘谦), this ‘Magic’ themed restaurant showcases the personal collections of these 2 well-known Taiwan celebrities. The restaurant is located in Huashan 1914, Taipei’s primary creative arts center and a hosting ground for Taiwan’s most significant cultural activities. The restaurant had a rather mysterious gothic facade.

Jay Chou owned a total of three restaurants – Mr. J French-Italian Restaurant (義法廚房北醫店), Fujiwara Tofu Shop (藤原豆腐店) & Deja Vu 音樂魔術主題餐廳. Among the three, I like this themed concept the most. I was kind of hoping to see him there but I guess I will have to meet him in my dream instead.  The restaurant was not difficult to locate but it is quite a walking distance from the train station.

We were greeted by this super cool Harley-Davidson bike when we entered the restaurant. Who do you think it belong to? Jay Chou or Liu Qian?

Once your table is ready, you will be brought through a heavy set of curtains. You can make an order at the bar counter if you like and have it served to your table.

Statues of griffins (I think) lined the walls of the dining hall.

As we got seated, I got drawn to an antique musical instrument.

Visual depiction of life in the medieval period adorned the antique piano. I was particularly intrigued by the intricate stone cravings that supported it.

At the extreme far end of the dining hallway lies an altar of some sort. Putting two and two together, the interior decor could have been that of a chapel.

You must not miss the 1: 1 bat mobile replica on the left corner of the dining hall when you are facing the altar. With a 3D illusion background, this is one photo you have to take!

It was a pity that my camera went dead before our dishes arrived. Although some folks commented that the food was average, I felt otherwise. The presentation was exquisite and the portion was generous! I would say the food standard was worth the penny. #Iwanttogobackagain~!!
