What is Chopped Cheese?
What is a Chopped Cheese? It's the most remarkable sandwich to come out of a Bodega since...well, any other sandwich I guess.
To be specific, a chopped cheese is a chopped up raw beef burger (seasoned with salt and pepper) and cooked with onions and green peppers. Then, it's placed on a hero roll with lettuce, tomato, and covered in mayo and ketchup. Simple, cheap, delicious, and controversial as hell.

Whether it was invented in Harlem or not, it's a delicious inexpensive amazing sandwich and we should all be happy it's around!
