Emeril's Tchoup Chop Restaurant Review

: Tchoup Chop (pronounced chop-chop) is a remarkable departure for chef Emeril Lagasse, best known for his Food Network stardom and classic New Orleans cooking. Located in the Royal Pacific Resort, the restaurant is named after New Orleans' famous Tchoupitoulas Street, where Emeril's parent restaurant is located. But that's where any homage to the bayou ends. Themed to the hotel's island décor and designed by the Rockwell Group, Tchoup Chop has a tiki bar complete with bamboo, waterfalls, sculpted gardens and giant woks for cooking in an open kitchen. Start with an island-themed drink like classic dark and stormy. Then choose from a menu that also is true to the theme, focusing on Pacific Island cuisine with a nod to Asia and Europe. For starters, try the Mongolian-glazed roasted pork belly or the Tchoup Chop salad with creamy soy dressing. Then move on to garlic grilled tiger shrimp with Chinese-style noodle cake, or the cilantro-cashew pesto marinated tofu with crispy rice cake and citrus soy. Desserts are a big deal: Emeril’s famous banana cream pie with caramel sauce and chocolate shavings is where to stop unless you just don't like bananas.
