The Chop House is one of those ubiquitous American diners, serving typical burger and fries, steak frites and so on. Yes, you're right about that but it's also one of the better ones in town that I won't mind going back to.
Deep-fried battered prawns
We kicked off with these huge battered prawns. Flavour-wise it wasn’t bad, but maybe not the most memorable.
Quesadillas with beef ($135)
Same as the prawns, pretty decent. And c'mon, who doesn't like quesadillas?
Soft shell crab club sandwiches ($158) Applewood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato and lemon aioli
My favourite of the night has to go to these amazing soft shell crab sandwiches, LOVED both the sandwich and the tater tots on the side. Delicious flavours and well-fried soft shell crab (not oily yo!). Lemme tell you, they ain't crappy but oh-so-meaty! I'll go back for this alone, no word of a lie. I can already envisage me and #fatassbehindfatass huddled round the table eating tater tots and fighting for the last sandwich (there are 3!) next time we're here.
Their tater tots were bang on. FRIED TO PERFECTION. CRISPY- NO SIGN OF OIL- SPOTTED, A PLEASANT BROWN. Oh man, these tater tots are some of the tastiest ones you'll find in the Kong or anywhere.
Bbq beef, bacon & cheddar burger ($170)
Chicken bbq burger ($145)
Lettuce see what we have here! Chicken bbq burger was deeeeelicioussssss; loved the kick of sweetness from the honey bbq sauce. Oooooh and that bbq beef, bacon & cheddar burger is BACON ME CRAZY! Look at that smooth, glossy surface of cheddar, I'm speechless...
Another tick in the box for a legit American Diner - GOOD BURGERS.
Braised beef shank lollipop on the bone ($1280) comes with 3 choices of side.
That beef shank was a killer. It could easily fill a dozen empty stomachs. If you're looking for something epic, this humongous piece of cow is for you. Fair warning: it's FRIGGIN HUGE.
Berkshire pork chop ($320)
Very tender meat atop a layer of Asian-inspired glaze- which included an interesting mix of hoisin and black bean chilli sauce.
Creamy corn and sweet potato fries were delicious, unfortunately most people were too full to try. #oops #dontmindhavingall
Apple strudel ($88)
Baileys cheesecake ($60)
Desserts weren't much of a surprise but definitely decent. Their Baileys Cheese Cake is worth a try, not as gelatine as it looks but pretty dense, kinda like a thicker version of mousse cake.
The general consensus was that this resto can be your everyday kind of establishment- great and enjoyable dining experience.
END OF BLOGGING, GET ME SOME TATER TOTS ALREADY!
