LOOK: Lucky Chinatown offers unique ‘Bike and Bite’ dining concept

One of the main problems that cyclists regularly face is finding safe places to park their bikes while they grab a good meal. Bike parking in malls are typically relegated to the darkest and lowest basements of malls, and even if you lock your bike in some places, its still possible for them to be stolen. 

For many bikers, the post-ride meals and drinks are just as important as the ride itself, but they’d still like to be able to keep their eyes on their precious bicycles at all time.

Looking for your next unique bike-to-eat ride?

Now may be a good time to pedal your way to Lucky Chinatown in Manila.

The lifestyle mall in the heart of Binondo just launched a new “Bike and Bite” concept, where bikers can conveniently park their bike as they savor the best of Asian cuisine.

The mall offers an extended al fresco dining area where bike racks serve as dining tables.

Based on photos shared by the establishment online, cyclists can secure their bikes on customized dining tables, giving them a “safe and convenient way” to enjoy stopover meals without having to park in a separate area.

Cyclists can use their own bike’s seat saddle as their dining stool, but the tables stabilize bikes and have footrests to provide additional support.

Cyclists who plan to visit are reminded to strictly follow health protocols, wear face masks and face shields, and keep their distances. According to the mall, supervised minors, seniors, and pets are also welcome to stroll at the Chinatown Walk.

Who knows? With the cycling boom in the country, this unique dining setup could become a standard in the future.
