Chi Kitchen welcomes a unique Asian inspired breakfast menu to Birmingham

Chi Kitchen is promising the people of Birmingham a breakfast like no other with the launch of their Asian inspired breakfast menu, which explores the breakfast habits and traditions of South East Asia.

The Chi Kitchen restaurant opened its doors to lovers of Thai, Malaysian, Vietnamese, Korean, Japanese and Chinese cuisine last September, and has since been causing a stir in Birmingham with their variety of exotic tastes and fresh flavours.

Now launching its own breakfast ‘with a twist’, the restaurant hopes to give locals and visitors to the city the perfect way to kick start their day, the Asian way. Diners can choose from a large selection of colourful, tasty and exotic breakfast dishes, with a contemporary, pan-Asian slant, ranging from Eggs Benedict-san (with salmon tataki), to Dorayaki (Japanese pancakes with matcha green tea powder).

Chi Kitchen is expecting the Rice Soup, similar in consistency to porridge and served savoury or sweet, to be one of the most popular dishes with porridge-loving Brummies.

Chi Kitchen’s Director, Andrew Lloyd said:

We’re really proud to be introducing a pan-Asian breakfast menu to the city and we know all our guests, Asian or not, will love the menu – it’s so tasty. We’re convinced it will be a huge hit in Birmingham, a city that is continuing to build an adventurous foodie nature, with so many exciting cuisines on offer. However, for those who’d prefer to stick to the traditional English delights, we’ve still got a selection of British favourites including a full English breakfast and eggs benedict.

The restaurant, which is situated inside the Bullring’s Debenhams store, recently announced its partnership with the 2014 MasterChef winner, Ping Coombes. Ping has already begun adding her Malaysian influence onto the menu with a breakfast addition of Congee, a dish combining coconut rice with robata grilled chicken, crispy anchovies, salted egg, pickled lettuce and peanuts.

Following a month long trip to Malaysia, Ping Coombes said:

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for all cultures. I gained so much food inspiration from my trip which has influenced my additions to the Chi Kitchen breakfast menu. I’m excited to find out what people think! As always, the food will be packed full of flavour and colour and I really hope to add that ‘wow’ factor to breakfast.

In celebration of the launch, from 1st April, Chi Kitchen’s Bullring restaurant is offering a “lucky” breakfast for just 88p, to the first 20 customers to dine at Chi Kitchen every morning!
