The decor of the restaurant is very modern, with all wooden,gold and black elements which provides the guests an architectural experience to complement the unique gastronomic experience. Cladded in charcoal wood slats and concrete floors, the entrance of the restaurant is reminiscent of the discrete and private entrances found in traditional Korean houses. The long bar at the entrance serves a wide variety of drinks, where the guests can enjoy a drink before or after the meal.

餐廳的裝潢非常現代化,設計師創造了壹個抽象的景觀和室內空間,在用餐的同時,為客人提供壹個獨特的建築之旅。以層層木炭包覆的金屬片與水泥石地點綴的餐廳接待處,讓人聯想起傳統韓式房屋的隱秘門廳。跨過餐廳的木制大門進入主餐區前, 賓客將被帶領至長廊酒吧, 在此放松心情小酌壹番。

We were firstly served with the trational Korean Bachan – a vast variety of homemade kimchis, seaweeds and pickled veggies. The kimchis were very good, similar to those i had in Korea.

和其他韓國料理店一樣,Chi-Q提供豐盛的餐前小菜。泡菜做得非常正宗,和我在韓國吃的味道差不多。

Kingfish Sashimi, Sweet Soy, Chili Oil, Avocado, Sunflower Seeds 皇帝魚刺身配甜醬油, 辣椒油, 牛油果和葵花籽 (CNY 88)

Kingfish sashimi is a signature appetizer at all JG’s restaurants, i had this at Mercato before and was quite impressive. After mixing everything together, i found the soy sauce a bit too salty. While the texture of the fresh sashimi and creamy avocado was great.

皇帝魚刺身是JG一系列餐廳的招牌前菜,我之前在樓上的Marcato試過,印象還不錯。魚生的質量很高,新鮮多汁,和入口即化的牛油果的組合也很棒。可惜醬汁過咸,我後來都是和沙拉葉一起吃的。

Foie Gras Kimchi Mandoo 鵝肝泡菜煎餃 (CNY 108)

Mandoo is a Korean style pan-fried dumplings, i had a lot Mandoo before but with foie gras and kimchi? It was also my first time to have this combination. The foie gras was nicely pan-seared inside the thin dumpling wrap, the rich oil oozed onto my tougue with a spicy twist from the kimchi, the two balanced well and didn’t cover the flavor of each other. The combination was so flavor so good.

在韓國料理店有過不少韓式煎餃的經歷,但是和鵝肝泡菜的組合還是第一次。鵝肝入口即化,一口下去油就爆出來了,和辣辣的泡菜的搭配也很完美。煎餃的皮不是很厚,煎地脆脆的很好吃。

Crab and Sugar Snap Pea Salad with Avocado 蟹肉甜豆色拉配牛油果 (CNY 128)

The crabmeat was very sweet and juicy, paired with the creamy avocado and seaweed, the entire dish was very enjoyable.

蟹肉沙拉中得蟹肉本身鮮甜,和牛油果的搭配也是非常不錯。海苔絲也起到了提味的作用。

Organic Greens and Spring Vegetable Salad, Lemon-Shallot Dressing 有機蔬菜色拉配檸檬青蔥汁(CNY 68)

The salad was a really large in size, with generous portion of mixed greens and kale, baby radish and refreshing lemon-shallot dressing.

這份沙拉的量真的很大,蔬菜也很新鮮。自製的醬汁很清新一點也不會膩。

Beijing Black Pork Belly 北京黑毛豬五花肉/100g (CNY 68)

Barbeque is something you must order at Chi-Q. The black pork belly is one of the most popular barbeque dishes. We also ordered the M+7 marinated kalbi and Canadian scallops.

M+7 Marinated Kalbi 祕製牛肋排+7/100g (CNY 138)

來Chi-Q當然要吃烤肉,其中最熱門的就是烤北京豬五花肉和祕製牛肋排。服務員熱心地要幫我們烤,但是我們還是決定自己動手。毛手毛腳的我們烤出來的味道也很不錯,大概是肉本身質量很高。帶子很大隻,多汁鮮美。我們也點了一份時蔬均衡一下。

Diver Scallops/4 pcs 加拿大扇貝/4只 (CNY 168)

You can picker either barbeque by yourself or by the server, we did it by ourselves which is more fun. Both the pork and beef we tried were pretty high in quality, very tender and juicy. The scallops were large and tender as well. We also ordered the seasonal vegetable for a balancing diet, it consists of vegetables that are quite high in nutrients such as asparagus, mushroom and kale.

The barbeque items come with complimentary steamed white rice and green leaves, and three assorted condiments to serve with the meat. The recommended way to have the barbequed meat is wrapping the rice and meat with a green leaf as shows following pictures:

每份烤物都有配生菜和米飯還有三種醬汁,服務員推薦我們用生菜包著飯和烤物一起吃。Chi-Q的飯做得很不錯,每一粒米都很Q,和肉一起吃也去除了肉的油。

Foie Gras Bibimbap 韓式拌飯配烤鹅肝 (CNY 128)

Bibimbap is probably the most typical Korean dish, the quality of bibimbap simply showcases whether that restaurant can passes the test. Chi-Q no doubt passed the test – the quality of the rice, the portion and quality of the vegetables and sesame oil used, the degree of the pot. The most special part of this dish is the seared foie gras on the top, it was large in size and nicely seared. After mixed everything up, the oils and fragrance from the foie gras evenly spread onto every single grains, not oily at all. The taste was quite special and delicious. If you don’t like foie gras, you can otherwise pick wagyu beef with egg, or with fish sashimi as a topping.

幾乎每次吃韓國料理都會點石鍋拌飯,個人覺得拌飯的質量最能體現一家韓國料理是否正宗。無論是石鍋的溫度、飯的量和質量、蔬菜的量和質量、醬汁的味道都過關了,最特別的莫屬煎鵝肝。鵝肝很大塊,火候掌控地非常不錯。服務員幫我們拌均勻,每一粒米飯上都沾著香味十足的鵝肝油。

Strawberry Mochi Sundae 草莓麻薯圣代 (CNY 60)

We were pretty stuffed by this point, but how can a meal completed without dessert? The strawberry mochi sundae is one of the top picks on the dessert menu. The sorbet and ice cream were a bit sweet for my liking,the mochi was quite chewy but overall, nothing very special.

完美的一餐離不開甜品。我們選擇了比較清新的草莓麻薯聖代,冰淇淋們有點甜,總體不過不失。

 

In general, Chi-Q is a nice place to go if you are tired of traditional Korean food. The quality of the food is no doubt good, i loved the concept of combining traditional Korean food with a western twist. The ambiance is much higher-end and elegant than normal Korean restaurant, but relaxing and homme compare to most other JG’s restaurants. The service at Chi-Q was excellent, the servers expain the menu as well as the food very well, and works very efficiently. Return is a sure thing when i crave for high-quality Korean food.

總體來說,還是比較滿意的一餐。食物的質量和味道都很不錯,吃膩了普通的韓料吃這個感覺食材質量好了不是一點點。環境也不用多說,除了燈光比較暗不適合拍照之外應該沒什麼缺點了。服務真的很不錯,對得起服務費。比樓上JG好太多。下次想吃韓國菜的時候還是會去的。
