Chop Chop Menu and General Tso at the Deli

A rough idea of what our General Tso chicken sandwich will look like.

Chop Chop arrives at Urban Deli with the question, “Who or what is General Tso?” Well, the who is General Tso Tsung-tang, a Qing Dynasty general from Hunan (China). But it is the what associated with his name that drew our attention and spurred our culinary creativity.

General Tso is an Asian chicken dish, a bit sweet and a bit spicy. Of course, we’re not doing General Tso’s chicken in the usual way. We’re doing our take on it, and making it a sandwich for Chop Chop 2016! This is our Chop Chop menu this year:
