Shophouse Open

Shophouse the new Asian inspired fast food from Chipotle has opened at Sunset and Vine to actually good reviews. Two more locations coming soon (Santa Monica & Westwood) Has anyone tried it yet?

  1. Yes. I liked it well enough. The chicken/pork meatballs were delicious and would go back just for them. Flavors are assertive and very much southeast Asian inspired. I would have liked more options (there are 3-4 options for each category--starch, protein, veggie, sauce) but I can appreciate how that would be difficult for that business model.

    1. Ran in for a quick lunch and was surprisingly satisfied. Clean, angular space, Siracha sauce on the wall - decor, garnish or both? Had the laab steak with half noodles/half salad. Delish. Fresh, natural no hormone, non antibiotic-treated meats, adequately spicy. Everything seems gluten-free too. No brainer at $7.50. Serves Beer Lao, Singha, Chang, & Stone IPA. I'll be back!

          Is that what's going in on the promenade where la salsa was?

            Yup! Drove by this morning, says ShopHouse coming soon but no indicator of when yet. Been renovating for a while now, so hopefully sooner rather than later.

            I'm eagerly awaiting the Westwood location. Anyone know when it's supposed to open?
