Dine Out : Chop Shop II

Chop Shop New York, Chop Shop Review, Chop Shop II Restaurant

Chop Shop II is a recent dining discovery with a menu that features a fresh take on Asian fusion cuisine. The space has a casual and cozy vibe with a clean and minimalist color palette of white washed exposed brick walls and blonde wood furniture. Their food offerings range from traditional Chinese to Southeast Asian dishes. Our server recommended the steamed lamb dumplings which is one of their specialties and these juicy and flavorful bites were a promising way to start our meal. We got two orders of vegetables that included pea tendrils (also known as pea shoot leaves) sautéed with garlic and spicy Sichuan long beans. Both were well cooked and seasoned. The spicy flavor of the long beans was on the mild side. We also tried the poached Norwegian salmon which tasted fresh and delicious. The Three Cup Chicken, a classic Taiwanese dish was a tad overseasoned but otherwise tasty. The dumplings and both vegetable dishes were my favorites. The food was solid and so was the service. We'll have to return to try their curry and drunken noodles. This is one of two Chop Shop restaurants. It is located in the Flatiron area of NYC. The original Chop Shop is in Chelsea.

Morning Rowena! It sounds like a very lovely place to eat and the food truly looks so delish, Im curious about the salmon most. Im watering since is almost lunch time here:) Have a good week dear! xo

Ivana Split said...

I never had pea tendrils before and that dish that includes them got me especially interested. Salmon is something that I wouldn't mind eating either, I've always been keen on fish (both water and sea variety). My native cuisine (dalmatia region seaside) is practically founded on fish and vegetables.

This restaurant seems great! All of these dishes look yummy....and quite unique.

The food looks absolutely delicious, Rowena! I struggle with making my own dumplings, I have no problems with making the filling, it's the wrapping that I fail in. I just don't know how to fold/pinch it to perfection like in the picture.

The food looks and sounds somehow exotic, because I've never had any of those dishes in my life. I am sure that I'll enjoy them though. Especially the Three Cup Chicken. The place looks cozy and I like the interior, as it seems very simple but nice. Have a nice day, Rowena! xo

This is the kind of restaurant I love to go to, Rowena. Everything looks amazing!

Corinne said...

This looks like a lovely bright, airy place to go. All places near us are quit dimly light and it's frustrating, esp when you want to take photos!
