Taste of Asia

India Today - - SIMPLY PUNJABI - Com­piled by Anan­dita Gupta

Chi Kitchen and Bar is the lat­est en­trant to Chandi­garh’s fine din­ing list. Barely two months since the res­tau­rant opened its doors in the city’s Sec­tor 7 mar­ket, it has be­come the talk of the town due to its de­light­ful panAsian of­fer­ings.

Spread over 1,000 square feet, the res­tau­rant has chic red and black in­te­ri­ors which give it an Ori­en­tal look. The menu has a host of items to choose from, and chef Yagyan Gahtri Chi has in­cor­po­rated more than 150 street

food spe­cial­i­ties from China, Thai­land, Sin­ga­pore, Ja­pan and In­done­sia in the menu. To avoid con­fu­sion while choos­ing, we rec­om­mend you start your meal with the chicken yak­i­tori skew­ers— light and flavour­ful, the chicken is ten­der and sim­ply melts in the mouth. You could also try the cala­mari with crispy balls or the Viet­namese grilled fish.

The main course too re­flects this culi­nary va­ri­ety. Try the tep­pen stir fried noo­dles or khauseuy— served with seven condi­ments pro­vid­ing for a dis­tinct flavour that is oth­er­wise not eas­ily avail­able in the city. The por­tions are good and the pre­sen­ta­tion is in sync with the style of Chi. The sump­tu­ous food, good ser­vice, and cheery am­bi­ence will make you a reg­u­lar once you’ve eaten here. And, if you’re not in the mood to eat out then you can call them for home de­liv­ery. Av­er­age meal for two Rs 800 plus taxes At SCO 180, In­ner Mar­ket, Sec­tor 7 C, Chandi­garh Tel 0172 5049595
