Fresh. Healthy. Delicious. Those are the three words I would use to describe the food at the Original ChopShop Co. in Chandler. After just one visit, ChopShop is now a part of my East Valley breakfast rotation. One of my clients turned me on to this place. She insisted I check this out after she read my review on Earnest Restaurant.
Located off Boston St. in Downtown Chandler, The Original ChopShop Co. offers an assortment of breakfast and lunch options, as well as a smoothies and fresh juices. Everything here is fresh and made to order, which is probably why it tastes so good. They bake their breads daily, use only natural meats, and support local farmers. They are also vegan/vegetarian friendly.
Breakfast items include morning wraps, bowls, parfaits, and baked goods. A couple of things I want to highlight is their Zen Bowl and Sunrise Wrap. The Zen Bowl, which is what I had, comes with scrambled eggs, spinach, mushrooms, onions, white cheddar, and brown rice. I modified mine and substituted for egg whites, removed the onions, and added sliced avocado. It was extremely flavorful and everything tasted fresh. My client got the Sunrise Wrap, which he said is his favorite, and it looked very tasty. It was loaded with egg whites, tomatoes, onions, sweet potatoes, white cheddar, avocado, pesto, and a whole wheat wrap.
My client raved about the juice bar and insisted we order some, so I tried the Green Glory, which had kale, grapes, kiwi, apple, cucumber, lime, and ginger. It was different, but very refreshing as the lime and ginger wasn’t overpowering. He ordered the Cold Buster, which had carrots, orange, ginger, turmeric, and lemon. I tried a sip of his and it was amazing. One thing I noticed was that they also make protein shakes and offer locally-roasted organic coffee.
Breakfast was fantastic, but I’m even more excited to come back for lunch. They have a good mixture of fresh salads and sandwiches. I asked the cashier about her favorite lunch items and she recommended the Raw Vegetable chop salad and the Moroccan Turkey sandwich.
If you love fresh and healthy, then the Original ChopShop in Chandler is the place for you. And with its downtown location, it’s only a short drive away from Gilbert and Ahwatukee.
