At JIDAI, Fortune Cat, known as ๆ‹›ใ็Œซ Maneki-Neko in Japanese can be seen as an iconic figure at the forefront. The team believes that this beckoning cat is capable of welcoming diners and bringing anyone who visits JIDAI good luck and fortune.
When coming about the restaurant’s concept and design, Chef Darwin recalled his visits to Japan and loved how this legendary figurine had brought him an emotional connection with the locals; just like how food brings people closer together. To Darwin, the ability to bring people closer together in new and beautiful ways is exciting. Having the opportunity to integrate such a memorable experience with what he does best provides him a level of personal gratification incomparable to any other pursuit. A new era of bringing people together begins.
