Hawaii Mom Blog: Chris Oh's Chingu Now Open




April 6, 2018

Chris Oh's Chingu Now Open

Culinary superstar Chris Oh (founder of Seoul Sausage Co, co-founder of Hanjip, managing partner of Escala, co-owner of Nomad Kitchen) has brought his Korean-style cuisine and flair to the just-opened Chingu on Kapiolani Boulevard.

As soon as you make your way to Chingu and see the fab mural by LA-based artist Tommii Lim, you know you're in for a treat.

I was fortunate to have attended a media tasting to sample a few items:
Watermelon Soju
Watermelon Soju is not uncommon on Oahu, but Chingu's is elevated with Fruity Pebbles and Pop Rocks!
Dukk Bokki
If you like spicy, you must get the Dukk Bokki!
Rockin' Roe
Mix up the assorted flying fish roe and sesame rice - so delish!!
Chicken n Cheese

This was my favorite dish of the night.  Chicken with a Thai gochujang glaze is served along side cheese, which is heated at the table.
Bone Marrow Corn Cheese
Scoop the marrow into the corn and Parm, mix everything up, and indulge!  I wanted to eat the entire bowl myself!
Chips n Dip
Love this take on Chips n Dip!
Tuna Tomahawk
A giant Korean BBQ-glazed tuna collar!! 
Pork Belly Bao Buns
One of the guests immediately wanted another order after taking one bite!

The food was absolutely delish.  Chingu, which means "friend" in Korean, offers the perfect Korean-style bar food that you can bond with friends over, and the restaurant also offers the perfect setting to make new friends (they have karaoke rooms!!).

Thank you Chef Chris for bringing your influential vibe and culinary talents to the islands!
