At Bake Chop, the meat is 100% grass fed beef, the shrimp is local and wild caught, and most of the produce is local and organic or organically grown. In addition, just about everything is house made. However, the baked items are not organic
Bake Chop serves small plates, salads, sausages, meatballs, and sandwiches. Along with a soup of the day, they have an amazing assortment of sides to choose from. They also provide a large gluten free menu. Bakery treats are baked fresh every morning where you’ll typically find at least a few gluten free options. They also serve coffee, wine, and beer.
What I Ordered
I ordered a small plate named Who’s Wanda. To begin with, the base is comprised of a grilled avocado topped with a black bean pineapple salsa, tasty shrimp with adobe mayo smeared across the plate for dunking. The shrimp were very flavorful and tender and the black bean salsa was light and perfectly mixed with tiny chunks of pineapple, onion and tomato. Yum! The so-called small plate was hardly that, it was clearly entree size to me.
It’s worth mentioning in this review, that Bake Chop is a small neighborhood restaurant filled with personality. I enjoy sitting at the bar that overlooks the kitchen where watching the chefs is quite entertaining. The atmosphere at Bake Chop feels more like a friend’s home; warm and inviting. Outside, you’ll find several tables equipped with sun umbrellas as well.
Bake Chop is a wonderful establishment in a lovely and happening area of downtown Deland. In fact, every Friday night the Deland Farmers’ Market occupies the alley next to the restaurant. The food is top notch in taste at Bake Chop and is one of Deland’s few clean choices. In short, stop by this local favorite and enjoy a fresh and satisfying meal; you’ll be glad you did!
