Markets in Everything: Chipotle Asian Style

Washington Post -- "With more than 1,000 locations in North America and the United Kingdom, most of us are exceedingly familiar with Chipotle’s colossal mountains of Mexican deliciousness. But at least for the foreseeable future, ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen — the brand new brainchild of Chipotle CEO Steve Ells that just opened recently — has only one location: Dupont Circle (DC). 

Chicken and pork meatballs, right, are one of the meat offerings at ShopHouse. The new fast-casual concept has the same pick-and-choose style of Chipotle: Choose either a banh mi sandwich or a rice bowl, with your choice of chicken satay, tofu, steak or chicken and pork meatballs. The sandwiches are topped with green papaya slaw, herbs and crushed peanuts, while the rice bowls offer your choice of veggies, sauces, toppings and garnishes. Early favorite toppings include those with the word “spicy” in them: spicy red curry sauce, spicy charred corn and the even spicier long beans."

Here's the menu.  I've tried it twice and really liked it. I predict success.

Well the contents of that bowl look pretty damn repulsive actually...

Thanks for the warning regarding SlopsHouse...

And yet, despite their name, and a huge selection of salsas, none of them is made with chipotle.
