It’s not every day one finds a restaurant that can cater to nearly every dietary restriction imaginable. Whether you’re dairy-free, gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan or one of a number of dietary-restricted lifestyles, Original ChopShop has something for you. Original ChopShop’s newest location in Park Cities offers a solid, healthy selection of juices, sandwiches and bowls.
One of the most popular juices is the Slim Squeeze, which contains pear, strawberry, orange, apple, kiwi, lemon and mint. It is thick to the sip and its color is a fun, vibrant pink. Apart from juices, Original ChopShop also offers a selection of flavored teas, including traditional black, berry hibiscus and peach acai, along with cold-brew coffee or kombucha on tap.
Each of Original ChopShop’s bowls comes packed with roasted broccoli, cauliflower, onion, carrot and mushroom. The vegetables are well seasoned and grilled to a crispy perfection. The guests get to choose a grain or a starch from a list consisting of brown rice, sweet potato hash, quinoa or forbidden rice, the latter of which is a naturally gluten-free rice that is also abundant in fiber. On the list of proteins are Thai coconut chicken, sweet soy sesame steak, spicy Korean steak, red chili lime shrimp and green curry tofu.
Original ChopShop is a fast-casual eatery — the pastel aesthetics throughout the restaurant allow for a calm, relaxing ambiance. Service is fairly quick and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable of every recipe and ingredient. If you're looking for a quick bite in line with your own dietary religion, this new restaurant can accommodate.
