Original ChopShop: Focus on FreshKeeping it simple with greens, grains and proteins
The focus here is on healthy eating. The Original ChopShop is built on a simple concept, executed simply, and summed up succinctly in the restaurant’s tagline, “Just Feel Good Food.” Fresh, whole ingredients go into the scratch-made menu, from “between bread” (sandwiches) to protein shakes to the name-sake “chops” (salads). “We bring in a ton of produce,” says co-owner Kyle Frederick.
Protein bowls are a core focus of the menu, providing guests with three key essentials: greens, grains and proteins. The most popular is the Teriyaki Chicken Bowl, with a pleasantly light touch on the teriyaki, which can be served with super-food forbidden rice, brown rice or sweet potato hash.
The Moroccan Turkey sandwich stuffs a flavorful mix of avocado, roasted red pepper, red grapes, cucumber and house greens — tossed with a yogurt sauce and red wine vinaigrette — with slices of turkey between two slices of crusty 12-grain ciabatta. The sandwich-sliced turkey’s fresh, buttery taste is attributable to the minimal use of sodium.
Additional signature menu items include the Acai Bowl, which is also a super-fruit, topped with shredded coconut, bananas, strawberries and agave nectar; the Danish salad, which includes Danish bleu cheese, smoked almonds and red wine vinaigrette; the Cheat Day Wrap, served with bacon, egg, avocado and ham or turkey; the Power Green and the Daily Detox fresh juices; and the Muscle Malt and the Jacked Up PB + J protein shakes.
Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner in an ambience that is unique to each location, Original ChopShop has an order-at-the-counter style of self-serve (or, even faster, online ordering) combined with the best of friendly service when the order is brought to your table.
