Square Meal Review of Chop Chop ?

When Jian Wang arrived in Scotland from Changchun in north-east China, she started a business making dumplings for Chinese supermarkets – so it’s no surprise that these morsels loom large on the menu at her no-frills eatery. Jiao zi (boiled specimens) might range from pork and celery to beef and chilli, while their bigger fried cousins (guo tie) offer similar flavours – all served with a dipping sauce of soy and vinegar. Chop Chop is also renowned for its freshly made noodles (boiled, fried or in salads), while the full menu offers many regional specialities (particularly from northern China): look for ‘pian’ vegetable broth, stir-fried chicken with diced potatoes, pork with coriander and ginger or barbecued lamb with cumin seeds. In all, it’s fresh, affordable, seriously authentic and very popular. There’s an offshoot at 76 Commercial Street, Leith (0131 553 1818)
