HISTORY OF CHOLON MODERN ASIAN

ChoLon translates to “big market” in Vietnamese and is named after the largest Chinese-influenced market in Saigon. It also includes Executive Chef/Owner Lon Symensma’s first name, so after his extensive culinary travels across Asia, it “felt right” to open ChoLon in 2010 in Denver.

You’ll notice ChoLon’s menu plays on interpretations of traditional dishes found across the Far East, combined with slight nods to Lon’s classical European training. For example, French onion soup is not usually found inside of a hand-pleated Chinese dumpling, but you’ll experience whimsical dishes like this across our menu.

✨🥃 Join us this Wednesday on our Sloan’s Lake Mezzanine for an exclusive night with Block Distilling! We’re debuting our custom gin, crafted with lemongrass, makrut lime &
Thai chili - the perfect blend for summer ☀️ Enjoy a 4-course dinner, each course paired with Block Distilling’s premium spirits. Expect an exciting menu featuring ChoLon’s signature bites, (yes- dumplings!), all crafted to complement the unique flavors of the gin. 

Block Distilling does things the hard way, crafting every spirit in-house from start to finish. They work directly with a farming family in Missouri to grow 70% of their grain, ensuring quality from the first seed. The other 30% comes from Colorado farms. No shortcuts, just pure craftsmanship.
