Please note that this was an arranged tasting.
If you’ve been eating and drinking in Shanghai, you should know the name Paul Pairet (PP). This French chef has created many climaxes in the F&B scene here since his arrival in 2005 – Jade on 36 at Shangri-la Pudong, Mr & Mrs Bund at Bund 18, and Ultraviolet, the all-immersive dining experience that ranked #24 on World’s 50 Best Restaurants (in addition to two Michelin stars) in 2016. His most recent project, titled “Chop Chop Club” in collaboration with Unico, just opened a week ago and immediately became (unsurprisingly) the hotspot on the bund.
常在上海吃喝的人，對 Paul Pairet (PP) 這個名字一定不陌生。這位法國大廚自 2005 年以來在上海創造了各種餐飲界的高潮，比如浦東香格裏拉的 Jade on 36、比如外灘 18 號的 Mr & Mrs Bund，比如名列 World’s 50 Best Restaurants、去年得到米其林二星的全方位感官餐廳 Ultraviolet。最近他和外灘三號的 Unico 合開了一家名爲 Chop Chop Club 的餐廳，開幕才一周，已（不意外地）成爲外灘上最受矚目的新寵兒。
Decor at Unico has remained largely unchanged, the only conspicuous difference being the addition of two large electronic screens detailing the carvery menu, constantly updated with time, price, and pieces left. Like this:
“18:30｜cote de boeuf｜650/portion, 1300/whole”
“19:45｜grilled seabass｜140/portion, 700/whole”
“20:15｜char-roasted chicken｜180/portion, 320/whole”
You will notice, upon closer inspection, that the first few items had already been sold out. Why yes, the dishes here go fast, so chop chop and order whatever you fancy before they are snatched by other tables, otherwise there’s no choice but to come back another evening.
走進餐廳一看，Unico 的布置沒有太大的改動，不過架起了兩座電子屏幕。屏幕上寫著每晚更新的 carvery 菜單以及每種料理出爐的具體時間、價格、以及所剩份數，比如：
仔細一看，前面幾款都已 sold out？！沒錯，這裏的美食不等人， 店名中的 “chop chop” 在英文裏的意思就是 “快一點”，所以在屏幕上看到自己想點的菜別忘了趕緊和服務員下單，一旦賣光就要下次再來吃啦。

What I remembered most about Mirka is the vividly-colored Mirka Mora wallpapers that line the entire dining room. The dishes we had that evening, on the other hand, all seem like a blur to me now, and I debated whether to blog about this restaurant at all if the food wasn’t so memorable. Oh well, let’s take a look at the pictures anyway.
To start, a complimentary plate of fried polenta sticks with sea salt.

La Clef Des Champs is a cosy little French restaurant on Rue de Rollebeek, just a short walk from Brussels Central Station. Delicious Lyonnais and Provencal dishes in a setting of purple pink table clothes and chandeliers…a delightful lunch spot!
