The folks behind Chipotle are taking a crack at something new – and DC will be its guinea pig. If it worked for Burrito Bowls…why can’t it for noodles? As Eater reported:

The burrito chain has announced they’re opening a chain of Asian restaurants called ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen, the first of which will open in Washington, DC this summer. Inspired by Thai, Malaysian, and Vietnamese cuisines, the restaurants will serve dishes made from seasonal ingredients including “grilled and braised meats, a variety of fresh vegetables, aromatic herbs, spicy sauces, and an array of garnishes.”

Sounds like fortune cookies wrapped in recycled paper instead of plastic, if you ask me.

  1. I wonder if they’ll serve the same crappy rice.

    They should start an italian concept so they can ditch the crappy rice.
