Welcome to the new age of fast food dining: Chipotle expands from burritos to bowls, taking a trip to Southeast Asia, namely, the shophouse in the middle of Hollywood. Lunchtime crowds and budget diners can customize their own on-the-go meal. Create a base of brown or jasmine rice, rice noodles, Napa cabbage, then pile on meat—grilled chicken satay, grilled steak laab, pork and chicken meatballs or veg-friendly tofu— and veggies (broccoli, charred corn, eggplant & Thai basil, green beans). Finish with your choice of sauce, garnish (papaya slaw, pickles, herb salad) and crispy toppings (toasted rice, crispy garlic, crushed peanuts). You can expect the same virtuous eating (re: antibiotic and hormone-free meat, non-GMO tofu) and touches of the East with a wall plastered with Thai newspapers, racks of Sriracha bottles and the store's own maneki-neko aka lucky fortune cat. The flavors are bold and often spicy with ingredients—did someone say tamarind vinaigrette or coconut curry?—you won't find at your average food fast joint.
