Chi-Q

Starts at the Bund, ends at the Bund.

Haven’t had Korean cuisine after I returned back to Macau, last time I already had the desire to come to Chi-Q but it is better to have more people to share the food. Located at Three on the Bund, Chi-Q (Michelin Guide 2017 – 2 fork & spoon) is a modern Korean restaurant opened by Jean-Georges and his wife Marja, it is stylish with dark lighting.

I was glad they have someone who speaks Cantonese, she recommended few popular dishes and advised us the amount of food for five. We had six different types of cold Korean side dishes to start off the dinner, for sure I love kimchi as well as the sweet potato mash. Ordered those popular starters and it was not bad at all, love the kingfish sashimi and crab noodle salad, the salad was really spicy though. Foie gras kimchi mandoo and steak tartar was good too, but I wasn’t into the way the steak tartar was presented.

The highlight was still the Korean charcoal grill, what’s better than wrapping the wagyu beef, rice, and kimchi with lettuce. The lamb rack was tender and tasty, I kept eating. Not a big fan of the spicy seafood hotpot, I required less spicy so the flavour became too light, my fault.

All three desserts were pleasant, didn’t expect the matcha opera was that delicious.

I miss my Korean friend.

久違的韓國菜。

在倫敦經常吃韓國菜,回來後卻沒吃過,上次來上海已經想來Chi-Q不過燒烤要人多點才熱鬧所以拖到現在。位於外灘3號的Chi-Q是由Jean-Georges和他老婆Marja一起合作開的,整個環境走昏暗路線挺適合我。服務很好介紹了幾款受歡迎的菜又建議我們點剛好五人份量,而且可以全程用廣東話點菜。

一開始有六道醃製冷伴菜,味道全都不錯,當然最喜歡泡菜和甜薯蓉。前菜皇帝魚刺身和蟹肉粉絲色拉很好吃雖然色拉很辣,另外鵝肝泡菜煎餃和脆米配Blackmore+9級生牛肉塔塔也不錯,不過牛肉塔塔以壽司的形式有點失望。

重點當然是烤肉,選了精選澳洲Blackmore+9級和牛,搭配泡菜,白飯和生菜。不吃牛也有新西蘭羊排,很嫩很香,吃了再吃。香辣海鮮火鍋就普通了點,有可能是我不吃辣說要少辣的關係變得不香辣了,味道有點失色。

三個甜點杏仁布蕾,柑橘帕伐洛瓦,和抹茶歐培拉都好,比較有驚喜是抹茶歐培拉,沒想到會這麼好吃。

想念韓國朋友了。
