Ten-Second Takeaway

Perhaps one of the oldest {and most-ignored} places in SDA, Chi does some stellar Asian food and cocktails. Highlights include dim sums, puffs and noodles.

Chow Down

Titanic Dim Sum Platter, Singapore Prawns

Sip On

Frozen Gin & Tonic, Mojito

Winning For

The space they’ve managed to bag for themselves in the otherwise crowded market. We also love the straw-embellished pendant lamps.

Bite Size

090816_Chi1 Titanic Platters And Super-Sized Cocktails At Chi Kitchen & BarTBH, we usually find ourselves dining at Chi only when the neighbouring Beeryani is full to the brim {let’s face it, most of you go to SDA for drinking purposes}. But we’ve never come to regret these impromptu dining sessions.

If you ask us, every meal at Chi should begin with at least three portions of dim sums, or you can order the Titanic Dim Sum Platter which comprises an assortment of 16 dim sums. Of these, the Prawn Har Gao and Pork Puff stood out for us. The accompanying chilli and spring onion sauces only complement the bite-sized dim sums.

The one thing which disappointed us was that the dim sums didn’t come as a massive pile sitting atop a Titanic replica.

Super Size

Chi isn’t cheap, so no chugging scenes here. However, they do whip up a mean cocktail and their glasses are pretty huge- thank God for small mercies.

We always enjoy their fresh mojitos and recently, we had the pleasure of sipping on their Frozen Gin & Tonic, which is exactly what it sounds like. Once you’re here, you can hardly resist taking a peek at their mains, and if you do manage to save some space post the dim sums, we’d recommend the Singapore Style Prawns and Clay Pot.

For Good Measure

Order their chocolate brownie with ice cream, if you’re craving something sweet. However, if you can do without dessert, skip it.

So, We’re Saying…

Chi Kitchen & Bar is a good option for people who want to enjoy a satiating Asian meal with a drink or two. If you seek beer towers, we’d say head to the back of the line at Beeryani.
