On our first visit to CHOP CHOPS , we enjoyed the glorious fall-apart tender Braised Lamb Shank ($145), which was served with mashed potatoes & vegetables (carrots, sweet red peppers, red onions and fresh mushrooms (not ‘fresh from a can’ as we were told in another restaurant)). We washed it down with a pomegranate Fresh Ginger, Ginger Ale ($20), an imported soda made with real ginger that’s totally worth its haughty price tag.

Newsday’s Anne Hilton liked Chop Chops so much she returned for the lamb shank (which we also love) and raved, “Then came the pièce de resistance — the lamb shank, with meat so sweet, so succulent, so tender it was falling off the bone…the roasted vegetables, the hint of wine in the sauce, the perfect creamed potatoes were the ideal complement to the meat. This was a dish I shall not soon forget.” [Trinidad & Tobago's Newsday, November 2011]
Newsday’s Anne Hilton enjoyed Chop Chops’ soup and pizza – “my favourite was one called “The Switch” with arugula or spinach, mushrooms, roasted grapes, red onions and mozzarella. I raved, I still rave over the taste of that pizza, to me it was pizza perfection… I’m very glad we had that shrimp chowder with the added subtlety of a few delicate, lacy cilantro leaves to enhance the taste.” [Trinidad & Tobago's Newsday, February 2011]
