Happy belated Easter, bunnies! (Ok, I stole that line from a boy who sent me a cute text last night. Please don’t sue, cute boy.) Do you know where the two bunnies above will be in the coming week? We will be eating like healthy bunnies at Choppe Choppe in Culver City which opens today.
We found out about this from our friend, Christina, at InkFoundry. It’s in Culver City and even though we plan on going very soon to scope it out for you, we’d like to tell you about it in case you’re on that end of town and want to check out the hype. Previously “Skratch,” Choppe Choppe is Jeffery Price’s new venture. Here’s a bit of background info from the inside:
Culver City’s wildly popular Skratch will become Choppe Choppe. The new menu will be loaded with all of the ingredients that made Skratch a neighborhood cult favorite – fresh, locally sourced, and artfully crafted sandwiches, salads, wraps and fresh baked desserts – all prepared to order fast. The chef driven menu showcases complex flavors and seasonally appropriate ingredients normally only found in the city’s fine dining restaurants and boutique food markets.
“Choppe Choppe is still going to be my food, just like Skratch, but this is a much more modern and grown up version of the concept that I started four years ago. Choppe Choppe will have more menu items to choose from and longer hours to accommodate the residents and those working late who want good food without a big hassle,” says Chef Owner, Jeffrey Price.
Raised in an Ohio farm town, Price enjoys most what he can pick himself. He fondly remembers his mother preparing favorites dishes from her legendary herb and vegetable garden. In line with Price’s preference for fresh vegetables, Choppe Choppe will also feature vegan and vegetarian options.
Desserts are not forgotten and include simple indulgences like fresh baked cupcakes, cookies, and cakes.
Price believes that great for you, market fresh fast food doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Entrees range from $5 to $10, with soups and sides at $2-$3, and dessert from $1-$2.
“People know all about fresh, healthy food, we’re just giving it to them in a fast and affordable format,” adds Chef Price.
Among the menu items, these sandwiches look most interesting to the UGs:
Korean BBQ Marinated Rib Eye, Fresh Sliced Asian Pear, Toasted Sesame Seed Aioli*, Cut Green Leaf with a Crushed Red Pepper Flake and Sesame Oil Vinaigrette
Seasoned Braised Pork, Vietnamese Picked Daikon and Carrots, Fresh English Cucumber, Jalapeño and Cilantro Aioli*, Napa Slaw, and Sesame Ginger Dressing
