Since opening Nov. 10, 2021, Chiko is serving Arlington residents delicious, high-quality Chinese and Korean dishes! Chiko is located in a 1500-square-foot space at 4040 Campbell Avenue. The fast-casual restaurant is open for takeout and delivery, and this newly opened Shirlington location joins four other locations, with locations already in Bethesda, Dupont Circle, Capitol Hill, and in California.
Chiko is a popular DC-based Chinese and Korean eatery, its name a shortened version of “CHinese KOrean.” With cocktails and foods made out of bold and creative flavor combinations, Chiko is a creation of The Fried Rice Collective, chefs Danny Lee and Scott Drewno. The two pair modern cooking techniques with traditional Korean and Chinese flavors to create their cuisine at Chiko, with menu items including dishes like flour noodles, double-fried chicken wings, smashed salmon, dim sum, orange-ish chicken, fried rice, and brisket.
