ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen opens Union Station Location Wed.


From a press release:

“ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen, the Southeast Asian restaurant created by Chipotle Mexican Grill, will open the doors to a new location in Washington, D.C.’s historic Union Station, 40 Massachusetts Ave, NE, in the West Hall on Wednesday, November 19.

“Union Station is a dynamic and exciting new location for ShopHouse and we look forward to sharing the bold flavors of our menu with a new community of commuters and travelers,” said Tim Wildin, brand director for ShopHouse. “Our menu is designed to be flavorful, exciting and convenient, making it ideal for the fast-paced travelers coming through the station.”

In celebration of its newest location, ShopHouse will partner with Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB), the largest hunger relief organization in the Washington metro area and a member of Feeding America, for a grand opening fundraiser. Customers who visit the Union Station location on opening day, Wednesday, November 19, and mention the fundraiser or show the flyer, will have 100% of the proceeds from their meal donated to CAFB (up to $5,000).

ShopHouse’s menu is influenced by the traditional ingredients, flavors and cooking techniques of Southeast Asia, and the restaurant gets its name from traditional shophouses, a common form of architecture in Southeast Asia in which families live upstairs and operate restaurants or fresh markets on the ground floor. The ShopHouse model closely resembles Chipotle, including a commitment to serving food made with the highest quality ingredients from more sustainable sources, preparing food in an open kitchen using classic cooking techniques, and serving customers in an interactive format that allows each individual to pick and choose exactly what goes into their own order. The entire ShopHouse menu is gluten- and dairy-free.

The restaurant will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

  • On one hand, I like Shop House.

    On the other hand, I find it a little weird that every new fast food place to come to Union Station seems to already be located within three blocks of the Chinatown metro (Chipotle, Chopped, Potbelly’s, Shake Shack, and now Shop House).
