Chop Sticks to Chop Steaks- American Take on Dumplings and Noodles in Times Square

Chop Sticks to Chop Steaks

American popular online and mobile ordering service providers analyzed 4.57 million active diners and revealed that General Tso, Orange Chicken, and Kung Pao chicken are the most popular Chinese dishes on New York streets. While all the traditional Chinese dishes typically serve strong savory flavors with less or no added sugar, the NYC version of Chinese cooking tends to be more elevated towards sugary elements. Traditional Chinese food is a blend of different textures and flavors. Whereas, Americanized-styled Chinese dishes are only about a few strong-sweet-sour-flavourful ingredients and appear meaty, saucy, and deep-fried.

Brooklyn Chop House- the American Chinese brand embraces the American side of that hyphenation. It takes American cuisine to the next level, redefining the authentic menu from Chop Sticks to Chop Steaks.

They serve delicious, highly spiced noodle dishes, spicy lamb burgers, and vegetable dishes, including a sweetening detail with carrots or sesame seeds, making Chinese food attractive to American customers.

5 Staple Americanized Chinese Food:

1.     Scallion Pancakes

Pancakes are an American Classics. These high piled fluffy stacks of deliciousness are staples in many cultures. These are served for lunch, breakfast, and dinner in different shapes, sizes, and flavors. On the other hand, Scallion is the most important fresh ingredient in Chinese Cuisine, served with garlic and ginger flavors.

Scallion pancakes are the American-Chinese pancakes, the scrumptious fluffy-yet-crispy preparations that can easily be adapted to any locally available ingredient. These are unleavened flatbread stuffed with green onions, spring onions, or scallions.

It is a popular food item on the Chinese American menu served by Brooklyn Chop House. The secret to these easily adaptable scallion pancakes is their flaky, crispy exterior, giving way to a slightly chewy interior of thin layers. 

2.     Pastrami Dumplings

Originating in China, Dumplings are served as a fun side dish in all parts of the globe. These are also known as potstickers, made of whole wheat flour and filled with meat or vegetables. Dumplings can be deep-fried, steamed, or boiled according to the preferred taste.

Pastrami is one of the most popularized foods in New York. It is usually made of beef brisket and sometimes from turkey or lamb. This raw meat is partially dried, brined, and seasoned with desired spices and herbs to get an authentic flavor.

Pastrami Dumplings are the Jewish Meat Knish, filled with onions, pastrami, kasha, and potato, traditionally baked or fried sometimes. BCH has redefined the classic American sandwich, turning them into dumplings. These are served with chopped pastrami, a little cream, and secret BCH Chinese flavors to add to the uniqueness of NYC Chinese cuisine.

3.     Wonton Soup

A steaming bowl of wonton soup is a perfect accompaniment or prelude to an entrée of Asian noodles or sweet and sour chicken rice. It is a standard Chinese cuisine dish prepared with chicken wroth and filled wontons.

Wontons are Americanized ravioli folded and served with spiced meat or beef mixture. This burst a great meaty and flavoury texture and is the most familiar dish in American Chinese Cuisine.

BCH clubs the delicious meatball wrapped in a thin and delicately packed dumpling skin, juicy and soft, seasoned with scallions, ginger, and soy sauce with wonton soup, which is clear bullion that is enriched with rich and flavourful hints of shrimps, toasted sesame oil and ginger.

4.     Philly Cheesesteak Spring Rolls

Spring rolls are savory rolls in Chinese Cuisine served with cabbage and other vegetable fillings. These are prepared with thinly wrapped cylindrical sheets. Steaks are, therefore, staples in American Cuisine. A classic Philly cheesesteak is made of thinly shaved steak (top round or rib eye) traditionally cooked on a coal.

BCH has clubbed these American and Chinese staples, serving authentic Chinese wraps stuffed with finely shaved and grilled cheesesteak, enriched with sweet and sour spices to seal the steak’s juice and enrich its flavor.

5.     Filet Mignon Beef and Broccoli 

Americans have some of the most curious dietary customs, according to which their meal is incomplete without a substantial portion of animal flesh. Beef and Broccoli are believed to be an original Chinese preparation, and NYC Chinese cuisine has Americanized the dish with filet mignon slices and spices.

Filet Mignon is the New York Strip that comes with a strip of fat along one edge of the cut. With clubbed pieces of beef and filet mignon, chefs at BCH reformulated the original Chinese concept of beef and Broccoli, making it a hit in their American Chinese Cuisine.


Chinese Cuisine offers easily adaptable and innovative food options, allowing chefs to take the original Chinese flavor and combine it with different spices to reinvent the new forms. American Chinese dishes have evolutionary similarities with Chinese staples, and the NYC Chinese Cuisine is described as the American’s Take on Authentic Chinese Food.

Brooklyn Chop House is a full-service American restaurant located in the heart of the theatrical district of Times Square, blending the best of American Chinese Cuisine and serving with a show-stopping culinary flair in a Broadway-inspired setting.
