CHINATOWN-INSPIRED RESTAURANT ‘Chop Chop’ adds up to the numerous reasons to enjoy weekends and Holidays at Bintan Lagoon Resort (BLR), my personal favorite destination of choice in Indonesia, just an hour Ferry ride away from Singapore.
‘Chop Chop’ offers colorful sights, great sounds, and fantastic scents of Chinatown, says BLR in a press statement received by ElysPlanet.Com. And we can only be very excited to be back soon. BLR is a 470-room resort set in a tropical paradise complete with amenities, home to sun, sea, and two spectacular golf courses.
‘Chop Chop’ is located just below the lobby level, ready to welcome guests with a dramatic sense of fun. From the loud, cheeky and funky graphic walls with oriental motifs to the hanging dim sum baskets and red lanterns surrounding the central column, the atmosphere pulsates with an energy typical of Chinatowns around the world.
Opened in November 2016, Chop Chop echoes the Resort’s revitalized branding as a hip, fun and vibrant destination for all ages. Styled as Bintan’s Chinatown, the outlet serves popular North Asian street food culture in a decor evoking the charm and nuances of Chinatown around the world. From the signage to the lighting and fixtures, every little detail is meticulously executed to bring out the concept of dining on North Asian streets.
To make it as authentic as possible, fixtures are a mix of rustic wooden table tops matched with vividly colored metallic chairs perched on tiled floors and comfortable cushioned benches set up against wall etchings of quirky shop house features.
Chop Chop offers a menu of well-liked street food, a quintessential part of the Asian experience. Guests can find a mouthwatering variety ranging from steamed and fried dumplings, noodles and rice to tasty stir fries and double boiled soups.
“The opening of Chop Chop brings back fond childhood reminiscences and memorable travel experiences in Asia. It is the perfect spot to test one’s chopstick skills and enjoy familiar tastes in a fun, casual environment. Its inviting, cheery décor is a popular selfie spot for guests,” remarks Moe Ibrahim, President Director, Bintan Lagoon Resort.
Designed by IWA Design of Singapore, the 260 sq metre Chop Chop accommodates 165 persons.
