Asian street food precinct to officially open in Surfers this weekend

Asian restaurant and street food precinct CHOP CHOP Surfers Paradise has announced it will be celebrating it’s official launch this Sunday with a special event called Adventures Through Asia.

The precinct will come alive from noon until 8pm with dining enthusiasts invited to experience the food, drink and Asian street theatre.

With the launch coinciding with Chinese New Year, there will also be traditional fan dancers, contortionists, magicians and daring stilt dragon performers too.


Visitors are encouraged to join in the celebrations and make the most of the opportunity to immerse themselves in the sights, smells and array of oriental dining options the precinct provides, while sampling delights from China, Vietnam, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, India, and more.

A delicious four-course sampler degustation option, The Adventures Through Asia Dining Experience, will be available for the opening night celebrations, enabling diners to sample unique cuisines matched with micro-cocktails crafted by the precinct’s very own Asian-fusion bar Bangla Road, for the set price of $35.

With an illustrated map in hand, diners on The Adventures Through Asia Dining Experience will be guided on a foodie adventure, as they stroll the hawker-style food lanes on route to their next taste sensation, sampling a total of four dishes expertly matched with cocktails from Bangla Road or non-alcoholic options from Fruit Bang and Sharetea.

The option to dine a la carte will also be available with the best of Asian cuisine in the one location allowing foodies to pick and choose as they please before retiring to the communal dining area surrounded by Oriental-inspired decorations, colourful murals and authentic statues to enjoy their feast.

A total of 14 tenants are currently operating in the precinct including Ace Thai, Bali in Paradise, Dumpling Mama, Fragrance of India, Fruit Bang, and Hot Cake House along with Korean Kitchen, Ramen Danbo, Rice vs Noodle, Sharetea, Sky Yum Cha, Sushi Ave, and Yum Cha Noodle Haus.
