4 Flavors at Chop Stop Restaurant in Cebu City, Philippines

I first came across a Chop Stop Restaurant in Cebu City on opening day at Robinsons Galleria at the North Reclamation Area. I did not mind it then as there were a lot of new restaurants to try at the newly-opened mall.

It was my brother Nathan who invited me for lunch at the Chop Stop Restaurant in SM Seaside City, also a new mall that opened just a week or two ahead of Robinsons Galleria. As we entered the restaurant, we asked what was the chef's special and they readily offered their chops. The fried chops can either be chicken or pork and it can come in four (4) different flavors. It can come in 1-piece or 2-piece chops. When ordering, you first choose either chicken or pork for your meat. Then you choose your sides which can either be buttered vegetables or nachos with salsa. After that, you choose your sauce from four (4) options: barbecue, chili, country, or Jack Daniels.

Their bestseller is the Jack Daniels chops, fried pork or chicken chops adorned with a sauce whose main ingredient is Jack Daniels whiskey. The Jack Daniels sauce has some kind of a sting from its alcohol but it's a good one as it adds flavor into the meat.

Another flavor that we tried was the chili chops, pork or chicken chops with a dressing that is spicy but with a hint of sweet.

Yet another flavor we tried is the barbecue chops. This one is also good, a hint of smoke in the meat but with just enough sweetness and sourness too. Next time we will dine at Chop Stop, we will be trying the country sauce and see how good that can be. The sauces at Chop Stop are good but I wish that the meat was more tender.

We also tried their mugcake. This dessert is like a warm brownie cup with ice cream on top.

One item in the menu that also got me interested but have not tried yet is unlimited margarita. Maybe next time.
