Chin Chin, along with The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappuccino Maker, recently opened its doors in El Segundo.

Chin Chin opened its first location in Los Angeles in 1983 and quickly became a L.A. favorite known for not adding MSG to its offerings and for dishes such as orange chicken and dim sum.

President Ken Bernard said the El Segundo location is a relaunching of its menu, which now includes a plant-based and gluten conscious dishes.

“There is such a demand for gluten-conscious products that it took about a year to develop,” said Bernard of Chin Chin's gluten conscious orange chicken. “We wanted to ensure that we didn't compromise.”

Bernard said while its portion sizes have shrunk, so have the price points on the menu. They also added a lunch menu that ranges from $10 to $14.

Opening its second location next door to Chin Chin is The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappuccino Maker, which offers modern California cuisine with European influences. They are open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. The menu includes coffee and teas, baked goods, egg dishes all day and breakfast sandwiches, soups and salads, burgers and sandwiches, large plates like a sushi burrito, as well as a beer and wine list and desserts.
