In January M, 4 friends and I went along for some lunch - or rather an absolute feast! The team at Chin Chin took such great care of us and served up a 7 course banquet - overall there were more than 11 amazing dishes!
One of the best things about the day was being able to treat our good friends to lunch out, and some of them hadn't tried Chin Chin before and we all loved it!
There was so much food I actually missed snapping a couple of dishes as we devoured them straight away - but here are the ones I did take.
|Kingfish sashimi with lime, chilli, coconut and thai basil. Probably my all-time favourite dish at the moment!|
|Chin Chin pork 'roll ups' with braised suckling pig, peanuts, slaw and sour herbs. So fun to roll and they were delicious and fresh!|
|Massaman curry of coconut, braised Hopkins River beef brisket with pink fur apple potatoes and crispy shallots. I'm not usually a beef eater but tried a litte, the meat fell apart in your mouth and the flavours were warm and hearty.|
|Cooling plate served on the side to take the edge of the curry. A nice fresh touch.|
|Pretty sure this was a wagyu beef salad, but I couldn't find the exact name listed on the menu. Whatever it was, M said it was one of his faves.|
|Salt and pepper crusted soft shell crab with green papaya salad and nahm jin. I've had this one on previous visits and it's highly recommended. The crab has a beautiful consistency and flavour.|
|Steamed free range chicken with green beans and peanut, chilli and Gapi Felish. This was very spicy and probably the only thing I might not order again. Not because it was bad, it just wasn't as amazing as the others.|
|These bannana rotis were lovely, really creamy inside and sweet outside.|
|Palm sugar icecream sundae with salted honecomb and lim sugar. This was my favourite dessert! But by this stage we were so full I only managed a spoonful!|
