This was the first thing I saw upon entering the relatively new resto in Salcedo Village.
Parang alam nila na darating ako ha. :p And come on, the mere name CHOPSTOP already suggests diet isn’t really welcome here.
Chopstop and Army Navy most prob have the same owners because of the very similar looks and they’re right beside each other. Hindi naman siguro coincidence lang ‘yon noh? :p
I got the “bestseller”, Tonkatsu Pork Chop, 149php. I don’t know how it became the bestseller. It sure didn’t taste like anything I’d wanna have again. The meat was too dry and tough. The breading was blah. The sauce had no character.
I was able to faintly appreciate their Spicy Chops. This isn’t for those who want it really hot though. Tamang anghang lang ito kaya pwede sa akin. Pero the meat was still hard to chew. Lumalaban. :(
The pork chops failed miserably but I liked their Fish and Chips (139php). Large servings of well seasoned fish and fat fried potatoes. I even appreciated it sans the sauce.
Suprisingly, the only thing I’d like to recommend from Chopstop is their Red Velvet Brownie in a Cup (89php). Served warm, soft and moist and not so sweet. Oh, did you know beet makes it red? Kaya daw pala Red Velbeet. Haha! Joke courtesy of Carmen. :p
I am not moved to stop for shops again but I can give it another chance. Hopefully, I’ll get to order the good items next time. Well… they have beers and margaritas…
