This unassuming fine dining restaurant could be popular with hipsters because of the surprises it has in store for the diners. The brick wall façade says nothing about the interior, which is pleasantly welcoming and cosy. They have a secret menu that you can ask for, and that’s the chef’s tasting menu. There is also a hidden bar upstairs and you might spot it if you look for a door leading there.

This could also be on a hipster’s go-to list with the characteristics of a speakeasy. Once you figure out where they are located (in a run-down building), you will be amazed at their grand entrance, which is decorated as a luxurious toilet. ChinChin is a sister of Chin’s Stylish Chinese Cuisine and you can expect the same minutiae, except that this luxury is set in a pink haven. Their dishes are creatively stately, such as their Boston Lobster Bikini or Kagoshiuma A4 Wagyu Sirloin. Just a bite and you will experience a golden shower.
