Chin Chin Melbourne

After my sis and cousin were hyping up this place the other night, we decided to go try Chin Chin (Thai food). We went on Thursday night, my sis told us they don't take table reservations and go early (5pm) or we would have to wait a while. We ended up going at 6ish and the waitress told us there would be a 1.5hr wait, I was thinking 'omg ONE & A HALF HR wait,  YOU BETTER BE GOOD'. They took down our contact details and txted us when the table was ready. Exactly 1.5hrs later they txted us, we walked back to ChinChin.

Menu/placemat - for some reason that asian boy on the menu reminds me of instant noodles.
We sat around the bar area where they cooked. We ordered 2 entree and 2 mains, we were overly ambitious lol
Chicken wings with chilli & corriander - B loved this. He said next time we go back, we will definitely reorder this dish.
 
Spicy corn & coriander fritter - B also loved this lol In fact anything that is fried he loves. I didn't even know what a fritter was before eating this dish lol.
 
You wrap the fritter thing in the lettuce and gobble it up.
 
Tom Yum - Hot & Sour - There is some kinda leaf in there that made it really spicy, I drank like 2 glasses of water straight and I had beads of sweat on my forehead. I can't handle spicy food (yes an Asian who can't handle spicy food, you heard it correctly...shameful but true).
 
Twice cooked beef ribs- This was yummo, the beef melts in your mouth - a little sweet but tasty.
 

Even though the restaurant was busy, the waitors/waitresses were really efficient and friendly. They constantly went around filling up people's glasses with water and were readily available if you needed anything. I was told that because we didn't have room in our stomach to eat dessert, we missed out big time. Sis recommends the ice cream with the salted honeycomb. I was on urban spoon the other night and this place was #1 on 'Talk of the Town', pretty amazing!

  7. They look delicious but I can't handle spicy food. How did you manage to take pictures of your food when you were probably hungry from waiting that 1.5hour? Hahaa, I would've just stuffed it all in my mouth @_@

  20. Yumm! Everything looks so good! I've never had Thai food...I don't know if I'd like it though, because I can't really handle spicy foods. 1.5 hour wait is insane though - that place must be really popular :)
