Chouta is a Herdazian street food. It consists of a thick, fried flatbread wrapped around fried meat and a dark gravy. It is wrapped tightly enough that it can be carried in one hand and eaten while doing other things. The standard meat is flangria, which is mixed with ground lavis, formed into small balls, battered and fried. The chouta stands in Dalinar's warcamp also sell a variety that is stuffed with cremling claws.
Lopen introduced Bridge Four to the concept of chouta. It went over well, especially with Sigzil and Rock, but Kaladin was not impressed and called it "slovenly". Kaladin eventually breaks down and tries it. He is annoyed to discover that it is actually good.  According to the description given by Lopen, chouta is basically a fried meatball sub with a flatbread wrap instead of a roll.
It has yet to be reviewed.
