information about Chop Chop
Vaad Harabonim of Riverdale / Glatt Kosher
Open since March 2010, Chop Chop is an excellent fast-food Chinese and Sushi restaurant in the “Heights” of Manhattan. While located uptown in Washington Heights, across the street from Yeshiva University, they deliver to anywhere in Manhattan,Riverdale and parts of New Jersey. The stylish interior is colorful and animated - no wonder the chef's name is Sunny.
Owned by the Rutta Family from Scranton, PA & NYC, the menu is a mix of Szechuan, Cantonese and Asian Fusion. The Ruttas were wise to bring in consultant Neil Wallin, owner of the Cho-Sen Restaurants in Queens and Long Island, who has over 20 years experience in developing kosher Chinese cuisine & sushi and as a consultant. In fact, Neil’s daughter nicknamed her dad “Chop Chop,” the inspiration for the name of this hot spot where food is to be had in a snap.
The house specialties include: “Mongolian Beef,” - sliced beef with green & red peppers, onions in a sweet and spicy brown sauce; “Spanish Salmon” - grilled salmon with scallions and fresh ginger in a brown sauce. On the sushi side, the Chop Chop Roll of spicy tuna, cucumber and sweet potato tempura with avocado on top is an outstanding choice as well as the “Egg-Plant” Roll - fried, hard-boiled eggs topped with fried eggplant and the Crazy Tuna Roll. The Chicken Pad Thai and General Tso’s Chicken are fantastic selections. Dishes are easily made to the individuals' taste.

Mr. Rutta emphasizes that “Chinese food isn’t always served fried. There are healthy selections such as low carb, low fat & even certain dishes that are gluten free. The restaurant offers private parties on the premise and off-site with great expertise. There are special Shabbat packages for take-out and Sunday nights feature live jazz music. Become a fan of theirs on Facebook to find out about their daily specials, and fun contests with food giveaways. Recent postings touted the “Chop Chop Express Lunch” - two dishes for $8.95.

Joy Rosenthal- 11/09/14
If your'e looking for a place to eat in Washington Heights you must not pass up on Chop Chop. As a college campus this is the requisite late night chinese takeout place (which also has indoor seating for your convenience) and for those of us on the Bennet side, they do deliveries! Not only do they do deliveries, they're listed on seamless which as most people know, offer many coupons and discounts which makes ordering a breeze. Just keep in mind they may not listen to your requests on time so be sure to be there when your food arrives or you may find your hungry neighbors have taken it hostage!
