Chili Club, Wan Chai, Hong Kong

Wanchai is not a place i go very often. I’ve been to the odd bar and a couple of restaurants but that’s about it. I have never heard of the Chili Club until a friend suggested we dine here for lunch for his birthday. It’s been around for many years now (his parents know the owners of the restaurant) and is his ‘go-to’ place for Thai cuisine. Can’t miss it, there is a huge sign and is located on Lockhart Road on level one.

The menu is vast, we left all the ordering to my friend and he definitely ordered well! Started with some – chicken spicy soup – i can’t for the life of me remember the name of this dish. It was rather spicy eaten on its own but with rice was just perfect.

The pork neck I love! Tender and succulent – you can never go wrong with pork neck.

The fish curry was a favourite amongst the diners. Fish was tender and moist and the curry creamy – a little creamy for my liking though.

The Thai CKT was definitely one of my favourites. Thick rice noodles with lots of flavours served with beef, egg and vegetables. I remember when I was pregnant with Dragon, all i wanted to eat was CKT!

We ordered another 5 dishes which I didn’t take photos off as I was too busy eating. The beef brisket curry was probably one of my favourites – tender beef, and the curry was not too spicy. The fried chicken is one of the best I have eaten – crispy skin, tender and succulent meat. The pad thai I thought was OK – I am not usually a big fan of pad thai’s as they are generally too sweet but this lacked a lot of flavour. It was incredibly bland. The chicken curry (Kaeng kiew sarin) was surprisely ok. Thick and not too sweet and not too spicy either. Last but not least the vegetables, stir fried morning glory – it was definitely tasty.

Unfortunately we were too full for dessert. Service was a bit of a hit and miss, it was rather slow at the beginning, but definitely picked up. I’m no expert on Thai cuisine, it’s not something I eat a lot off but really enjoyed the fried chicken and the CKT.

However, I did have a little egg tart when I got back to the office though – I couldn’t resist as it was from my favourite bakery – tae cheong bakery! YUM!
