Why go to Chop? Two words: Prime Rib. More on that below...
Chop Steakhouse & Bar is located at the former Joey Tomato's, attached to Chinook Mall. Service is friendly and the decor is modern and cozy. Chop has good drink specials, ranging from cocktails to Kronenbourg on tap.
The Ahi Tuna Pillars was wrapped in phyllo and sesame noodles, deep fried and served with wasabi aioli and citrus salsa. We thought this was a creative preparation of the tuna but we had our doubts about how all the ingredients would come together. However, to our surprise, the flavours and textures complemented each other well.
The Bourbon Glazed Chicken Wings had good flavour, but did not seem to be at its freshest.
We had no complaints with the French Onion Soup- onion-y and cheese-y. Good stuff.
We've also tried the Smoked Rib Eye served with bbq sauce (on the seasonal menu). The smoked flavour went well with the rib eye and was cooked perfectly. If I hadn't tried the prime rib, this would have been more than satisfactory.
If you ever find yourself at Chop, the prime rib is the way to go. Forget about saving room for dessert, get the large prime rib and you'll be happy you did.
If you know of a place with better prime rib, let us know!
