With the weekday blues setting in, I thought I’d cheer you guys up with another lovely Asian restaurant @chi_kitchen. Situated in the Debenhams department store on Oxford street, Chi Kitchen offers a relaxed dining atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Jumping straight into the food, we started out with the Chi Kitchen Roll, seared salmon on top of an Uramaki style roll (rice on the outside) and finished with Tobiko (fish roe). The sushi was delightfully fresh and the tobiko provided those little bubbles of joy as they burst on your tongue. Oh and for that added theatricality it was served with billowing clouds of smoke, which of course is great for the ‘gram. ————————————————————————
Alongside this we had the Wasabi Prawns and the Dim Sum Platter. The Dim Sum came to the table piping hot however lacked any real flavour and to be perfectly honest I don’t really remember what was inside them. The Wasabi Prawns on the other hand were divine! A creamy mayonnaise coated the perfectly soft prawns with the wasabi taste subtly coming through at the end and providing that little kick.
The highlight has to be the Crispy Duck with pancakes. The duck was for once actually tender and not dry, and the little bit of fat with duck made everything that much more tasty when rolled up in the pancake. ————————————————————————
For mains, we opted for the Kungo Po chicken, BBQ Robata Chicken and Fried Noodles. Of course you can’t complain about noodles, so I won’t delve into much depth there. The Robata BBQ Chicken was so so tender and soft, although didn’t have enough flavour. But the Kung Po Chicken, was extremely tasty. A sticky spicy sauce coated the thickly battered chicken pieces, and they were extremely moreish. All in all a great meal at a great restaurant! ————————————————————————
