Chin Chin's Tenth Birthday Month
The iconic laneway restaurant is celebrating its tenth birthday with a month full of feasts and parties.
Over the past decade, Flinders Lane's Chin Chin has well and truly earned a spot among the city's food institutions. And now it's celebrating turning the big one-zero in style with a whole month of tasty birthday festivities.
It all kicks off on Wednesday, May 5, when the restaurant fires up for the spice-fuelled Chilli Inferno dinner, matching inventive plates like seafood pad khaprao and a pork belly dry red curry with a special curation of cooling cocktails, beer and wine.
On Wednesday, May 12, plant-based feast The Garden of Eatin' serves up a meat-free spread of bold southeast Asian fare with matched drinks, while Wednesday, May 19 sees Chin Chin Executive Chef Benjamin Cooper treat diners to his ultimate dinner — featuring a parade of boundary-pushing dishes that never made it onto the menu.
And on Thursday, May 27, Melburnians are invited to one heck of a wrap party, starring a roll call of Chin Chin's favourite collaborators from across the years. Expect a night of high-energy celebrations, complete with tunes from Miss Goldie and DJ Salvador Darling; artistic delights courtesy of I Am Offerings, Bendy Ben and Tanzer; a special birthday cocktail lineup and pop-up food stations slinging some of Chin Chin's finest flavours.
Tickets to each of the four events are $165 per person each and they're expected to sell out fast. To book yours, head online.
