Let us start Arrowtown the way we started - with one of the best restaurants we have been to till date - Chop Shop. Imagine a familiar little place that has built a repeat customer base that seems like family, tourists who get recommended to visit this place by locals and a fantastic staff team. Now add in the fact that they make the some of the most amazing food EVER. That is the recipe behind @thechopshopfoodmerchants
I had some fantastic Turkish poached eggs with garlic, dill, Greek yoghurt, chilli and some buttered bread. I cannot tell you what an ecstatic combination this was - such a beautiful confluence of flavours that had me licking the plate. K loved his huevos rancheros with tortillas, tomato salsa, avocado, sour cream and fried egg. What a happy happy lunch this was - walking into Arrowtown just a stone’s throw away from the Chinese settlement and beginning your day like this. How powerful the first experience can be in setting the tone of the rest of the tip! If you are ever around Queenstown, go here because this is one of our favourite meals ever and we have had a fair many. The staff even hooked us up with some of their favourite things to do around QT ❤️
PS. We sat outside overlooking some dense greenery but it is pretty cozy inside as well. This place is up on my highlights as well.
