Wow, so um wow! A week ago we went to eat at a darling of the Melbourne food scene, Chin Chin. I don’t follow the trends and new hot things in the local scene very closely but had still managed to hear it is a great place, though little else beyond that.
What the place turned out to be was amazing and well deserving of the buzz it has generated. After waiting an hour to get a table* we ordered the “Feed Me” set menu at $66pp where as we discovered they just keep bringing out dishes of wonderful Thai food until you beg for mercy. We definitely got our money’s worth and tried many dishes we probably wouldn’t have picked otherwise but enjoyed heartily.
I cannot recount all the dishes we ate because of this, it is now one big long beautiful blur. However overall the salads were probably the highlight, so wonderfully flavoured many with a well balanced chilli bite. I will certainly be heading back there, probably taking friends from out of town to show off a shining example of what the food scene in Melbourne has to offer.
