Sensational Korean cooking in Earlsfield at this branch of the original Cah Chi in Raynes Park.
There’s been no diluting of the fierce authenticity that characterised the first Cah Chi when it opened in Raynes Park in 1995 at this second branch.
Everything we’ve sampled here has been sensational: from the pa jeon, a flour pancake with a filling of spring onions and seafood, to the yuk-hoi dol-sot bap – raw beef, rice and pickles served in a sizzling stone bowl, which cooks the food on contact and creates an appealing rice ‘crust’. Another classic is bulgogi, thin strips of beef marinated in pear juice, seared in front of you and then rolled in a lettuce leaf with spring onion and the Korean ‘miso’ called chang.
Service is smiling and enthusiastic, and you can bring your own wine but not beer.
