Gili’s is a new Western Restaurant on Tongzilin Nan Lu that has just opened!
This Western Restaurant offers pizza, pasta, and assorted starters and desserts. The pizza, chicken wings, bucatini pasta dish and their cheesecake are particularly popular.
GILI’s is a pocket sized bistro, near Burger Austin, 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 chalk board 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.
It must be noted that like many other ‘western style’ restaurants in Chengdu, the food from GILI’s isn’t the most authentic in the world. But the service is nice and it’s a cosy spot.
