Dining Out: Cambridge’s Market House opens Asian restaurant
Cambridge’s Market House has just cut the ribbon on a new Asian restaurant – and it looks delicious. . .
With signature dishes ranging from classic crispy duck and ramen bowls to tteokbokki - a spicy stir-fried Korean ricecake served with accompanying fishcake, vegetables and a boiled egg - Cambridge’s Market House has just cut the ribbon on its new Asian restaurant.
Housed in what was previously the basement wine bar, Market House Asia is, say founders Bill Brogan and Jinzhao Li, “a culmination of cultural connections and shared experiences”.
Described as “a new culinary adventure that brings you authentic East Asia flavours”, the menu features dishes from across China, Japan and South Korea. In line with Market House’s ‘fresh, seasonal and sustainable’ ethos, everything is prepared freshly and cooked to order.
Spreading over five floors of an iconic Grade II listed building - formerly Don Pasquale, it sits right on the corner of the market place with views out to King’s Parade - Market House comprises a modern British fine-dining restaurant, private dining rooms, a cosy wine bar, now home to Market House Asia, a Food Lab and flexible meeting spaces.
It’s a shared vision for Bill and Jinzhao, partners in both life and work. He kept a Michelin Star at Le Talbooth, the youngest chef to do so at the time, before working for the Four Seasons Group, ICI and St John’s College, Cambridge, where he spent 17 years; she previously worked in education and culture across both China and the UK.
“Market House is,” they say, “about bringing people together: it’s your home from home, where you have comforting food, good drinks, and where you enjoy time with family and friends. . .”
