Chairman and Yip

Chairman and Yip helps warm you on a cold cold Canberra night

On Friday evening Bron and I went to Chairman and Yip for dinner. The Chairman group of restaurants in Canberra have a reputation for high quality fine dining with a strong Asian influence. We have eaten here and at the other two restaurants in the group before and always come away very happy with the experience. Chairman and Yip is listed in the Entertainment Book so Bron and I had no hesitation coming back and enjoying a good meal with a discount.

It was a cold cold night, I arrived first with some flowers for Bron and a wine stand was brought out for me for the flowers. When Bron arrived she saw the flowers and was ecstatic.

After perusing the menu we agree on the Chef’s tasting menu which consists of eight dishes including dessert and tea or coffee. In the end we received nine dishes so I was pretty happy. With the discount from the Entertainment book it was a great value high quality meal. Thank you Bron and Chairman and Yip.

The calamari had a really nice chilli kick to it. It wasn’t blazing hot but it certainly left some excitement in my mouth. For my niece, this is fancy Japanese chips.

This dish had really refreshing flavours. The basil and mint really gave it a great uplift. The prawns were perfectly cooked.

OMG the salmon was cooked perfectly. It was like a dense mousse but in a really good way. The white discs were like a pasta or a really smooth cheese. I don’t know what it was but with the salmon and the soy it was amazing.

Sorry about the image. There was a little camera shake. I had the ISO at 1600 and the aperture at f/2.8. It was really low light. The pancakes were gorgeous.

We’ve enjoyed these stuffed mushrooms before and again they are just wonderful. I could eat a meal of these.

The beef on this skewer was so tender. It almost melted in my mouth. This is a must have.

This lamb is slowly cooked over night, air dried and then flash fried. OMG this was the best dish of the night. So so good.

This hot pot was a bonus. It wasn’t on the menu. The scallops were perfectly cooked.

We both chose a dessert and then shared them. These were very nice. 

Chairman and Yip never disappoints. If you live in Canberra I reckon this should be a place you eat at once every couple of years. If you’re a visitor, it’s place for fine dining with an Asian influence. 

Now it’s time for a colony rating. I’m very happy to give this 4½ colonies. Fantastic. I’ll be back.

The Chairman and Yip on Urbanspoon

Photography information. I shot with my Canon PowerShot G16. I was shooting aperture priority capturing RAW. I was using an aperture of F/2.8 and ISO 1600. The images are quite grainy and rather than display them in full size I’ve elected to display them in medium size. If you click on one of them a slide show will pop up and you’ll see what I mean about graininess.
