Chop Chop Chang's
A canteen-style space for gathering some pals and sharing in the many delights available.
The businesses of Boundary Street are known to serve up some of the city's tastiest food and drinks around town, and the fare delivered by Chop Chop Chang's is no exception.
The menu boasts a fusion of pan-Asian street food with inspiration hailing from temple stalls and hawker markets throughout Asia. The canteen-style space offers the perfect opportunity to gather some pals and share in the many delights available. According to the menu, "good times are best shared and so is our food".
The drinks menu offers a variety of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic choices. Juices, iced teas and traditional Vietnamese coffee are but a few of the more conservative picks. If you're out to play, choose from a number of Asian beers or opt for a signature cocktail, like the chilli and ginger beer mojito. For good times all around the table, grab an Asian punch to share before you sink your teeth into many, many tasty morsels.
In terms of food, the menu is divided into different types of plates, seemingly crafted for sharing among a group. The son-in-law eggs ($8) or caramelised chilli lime cashews ($4) are perfect to whet your appetite. For something more substantial, the 'barbecue' and 'wok' stalls or bowls offer an array of choice. Get your hands dirty with the twice-cooked sticky beef ribs ($22) or tantalise your tastebuds with the Chang Mai chicken curry ($20).
There are a number of gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan and vegetarian options available to keep all appetites at bay. And if you really can't decide what to order, there is always the option to choose the 'Market Feed' and feast on a selection of favourites marked out by the kitchen ($54pp). If you can make it all the way to the sweet stall, congratulations! You should try the bitter chocolate and banana tart with Vietnamese coffee ice cream, because I couldn't.
Finally, end your meal with a karma cookie. You'll get a glimpse of your fate, and with all proceeds being donated to a different charity each month, it will be the tastiest good deed money can buy.
