Just months after it opened its first location in Old Town in February, the Original ChopShop Co. is bringing its lineup of healthy, affordable eats for those on the go to a new spot opening in Tempe today.
Located at 222 East University Drive (between Forest and College Avenues and in the former home of Pita Pit) the new counter-service eatery will offer a small menu of all-natural breakfast, lunch, and dinner items that stay around ten-dollar mark.
Here are the details.
In the way of dishes, think sandwiches (also offered as wraps) including a grilled tri-tip with caramelized onions, Fontina cheese, mushrooms, and a horseradish crème; salads like an Asian chop that can be enhanced with the addition of shrimp; and protein plates featuring grilled chicken, beef, shrimp, or tofu with rice and roasted veggies.
For nutrition in liquid form, the Chopshop offers pressed juice creations in addition to letting guests customize their own. Protein shakes like the Muscle Man, made with banana, peanut butter, and with an optional shot of espresso, are also on the menu.
