For entree, we shared the Son-In-Law Eggs with Homemade XO sauce. The menu didn't offer a description of what these were and I couldn't figure how these eggs could be a filling entree, let alone how they got their name, so we placed trust in my best friend who said these were good. Well thank goodness we did, because these eggs were delicious. The eggs had a light orange crisp outer shell and I think they mixed the yolk with tamarind which gave it a great sweet flavour with the XO sauce. I loved these so much I bought some more take-away to give to my boyfriend.

For our mains we had the Steamed wild Barramundi fillet with chilli, soy bean, ginger, mushrooms and lily buds. This dish was delicious because the fish was cooked perfectly and the flavours were similar to the whole Barramundi dishes you can get at other Asian restaurants. However because it was served as a fillet we didn't need to pick the bones out and it was an easy dish to share.

How could you go to a Thai restaurant without trying one of their fresh and textural salads? Chi Chi definitely does not disappoint with their offering of yummy salads like Crispy Skin Salmon and Green Papaya Salad and Fried Wild Barramundi Fillets with Green apple salad. In the end we chose the Braised Pork Belly salad with green papaya salad and fried shallots. This salad was deliciously fresh and had an amazing textural balance with the papaya, fried shallots and the crispy pork. This would have even made my Anti-"Rabbit Food" friends digging in for more.
