To celebrate our tasty new beer menu, we’ve paired four more burgers with Vietnam’s finest craft beers, and a tasty lager from overseas too…
When ogling the Chops menu, you may wonder how we decide what goes with what in our “goes well with” recommendations.
Do we, perhaps, line up bottles of beer like pins and go bowling with our latest burger to see which beers remain standing?
It’s more simple than that. After years of eating and drinking, we just know what works when it comes to meat, wheat and hops. Our beer and burger palettes are finely tuned to the art of burger and bevvie pairing, which you should enjoy as follows.
1. To Brie Or Not To Brie Burger + Peroni
Badda bing! Big news: down at your local Chops, you can now grab a refreshing glass of Peroni.
And with this Italian lager, enjoy our signature beef patty (made up of wagyu and chuck, to create that tasty, tender, sirloin-like taste) with a healthy does of deep fried brie, a dollop of our in-house IPA chutney and the classic tomato, lettuce and tobacco onion combo that no Chops burger could be without.
The crisp, fruity and light Peroni really draws out the taste of the brie and IPA chutney, making this is an epic combo for a day in the sun.
2. The Big Kahuna + Pasteur Street Passion Fruit Wheat Ale
Throwing pineapple on your plate is a divisive issue. We’ve witnessed four relationships end in our restaurant thanks to our Big Kahuna bad boy.
We like to move with the times, though. And our beef patty, cheddar cheese and pineapple combination topped with mango chutney, lettuce, pickles, tomato, mayo, and tobacco onions is definitely the dash of Hawaian our menu needed.
We found the perfect partner for this sweet and savoury mash-up with the Pasteur Street Passion Fruit Wheat Ale.
The fresh passion fruit dominates what would otherwise be the mild flavours of the ale. The light body and crisp taste brings out the tang of the Big Kahuna, making an all-round sweet and bitter taste explosion to knock your lid off.
3. Katsu Chicken + Pasteur Street Jasmine IPA
This is the only Japanese/American combo good enough to break up the Beatles.
A delightfully crispy Japanese-inspired breaded chicken burger, with a healthy serving of Chops’ slaw, tonkatsu BBQ sauce and Chops’ own mayo, paired with Paster Street’s IPA – synonymous with the Pacific Northwest of America, brewed with Vietnamese jasmine.
4. The Durty Bird + 7 Bridges Sunset Tangerine
We’ve taken Hanoi’s Durtiest poultry from our mates over at Durty Bird and stacked it up with a refreshing, fruity brew from 7 Bridges – perfect as a palate cleanser.
Think crispy buttermilk chicken, succulent pulled pork, cheddar cheese, tangy BBQ sauce and spicy jalapenos paired with the cool and refreshing flavours of 7 Bridges Sunset Tangerine, with hints of tangerine and mango.
