Gili’s Restaurant and Bar
Pocket-sized bistro Gili’s Restaurant & Bar opened last year, on foodie hotspot Tongzilin South Road – but only had enough seats for a handful of people at a time. Due to demand, it has now taken over the premises next door, to make much more room for you enjoy this family-friendly bistro. They also have a creperie next-door!
Daily from 11 am to 11 pm

GILI’s bistro, near Burger Austine, and is run by the lovely Sue. Sue studied at culinary school and worked alongside Michelin chefs in Shanghai and Hong Kong – before her opening her first solo venture.
The menu changes frequently and is a chalkboard on the wall kind of affair. We started with a hearty goulash (38RMB), followed by the spicy bucatini bolognaise (45RMB) and bacon and mushroom pizza (S60RMB/L80RMB). The steak with (slightly sweet) peppercorn sauce, has to be ordered a day in advance. Sue is also cooking up a range of cakes of which the cheesecake (28RMB) was our favourite. It would be the perfect partner for an afternoon of people watching onto leafy Tongzilin Nan Lu.
