Where are you going? - Sept 2011 Edition
Here is the original picture used by this world:
We took this picture 2-3 months ago, not sure. We were on Sunset to celebrate a friend's birthday at a restaurant called Chin Chin.
If you've driven by that particular area in Sunset, everything looks so expensive: The shops, the eateries, the parking. When our friends told us they wanted to eat around there we were a bit hesitant. It was also hard to understand by phone the name of the restaurant. Chin Chin? lol. Must be a mistake or something.
It was a big surprise to find a huge free parking lot behind Chin Chin. All the businesses in that block share that parking space. I thought that everyone had to use valet or use metered parking. As a bonus, there is a bakery in that parking lot. Who puts a bakery at the back of a parking lot? It also wasn't much of a bakery. There were like five miniature cupcakes and random party items like birthday candles and gifts.
The restaurant itself was not overpriced like we thought. It was actually very affordable. Huge portions and menu items ranging from 10 to 20 dollars on average. The website makes their restaurant look much nicer than it actually is, the place is nice but not that nice.
The food itself was ok, but that was probably because we didn't order anything really special. Service was very good, always came by to check on things and glasses were always full.
If you want to eat in that particular area and don't want to break the bank it's a good place to go. Lots of free parking and the prices are the same as you would find anywhere else.
