Chinese and East Asian
After two successful years selling her internationally renowned Chinese dumplings to the public, Jian Wang opened Chop Chop, a first-rate Chinese restaurant that has been impressing diners since 2006. The best way to sample them, is during a visit to Chop Chop, which has retained its AA rosette every year since 2010.
Chop Chop regulars will tell you that you simply must start your meal with jiao zi – mouth-watering traditional dumplings filled with a variety of meat and vegetables. Particularly popular choices include lamb and cumin, as well as pork and cabbage. For your main course, try the spicy garlic squid, or sweet and sour pork ribs – tender meat falls off the bone and is infused with a rich, sweet vinegar and soy sauce dressing. Jian travels to China every year to search for new recipes, ingredients and styles in order to maintain Chop Chop’s well-earned reputation as one of Edinburgh’s best Chinese restaurants. Whether you visit for a full banquet or order a meal to take away, you’re sure to enjoy Chop Chop’s delicious, traditional Chinese food.
