Since opening, Chophouse has become synonymous with food, flavour and fun and an Australian take on the popular New York steak house. An entirely seasonal and produce driven menu, Chophouse offers some of the the best meats from around Australia.
Tropical Blush $18
As always our meals started with a cocktail or two. This sophisticated drink was a fruity mix of Ketel One Vodka, Liquor 43, passionfruit syrup, fresh lime juice and pink grapefruit juice.
Our Sling $18
Chophouse’s own interpretation of two classic rum cocktails, combining house made cranberry syrup with amaretto, dom Benedictine, pamperro and Havana club rums. Quite a heady cocktail, but one I very much enjoyed.
Scotch Egg $12.9
With a ravishing hunger consuming me and being already slightly hammered from the two cocktails, I was pretty thankful at how quickly these scotch eggs came to our table. Golden and crispy on the outside, I was pretty impressed at how they were able to cook the surrounding sausage meat while still keeping the yolk runny.
Pan-Seared Tuna $23.5
Incredibly fresh, the light searing gives the slices a dual flavour. Resting on a bed of fresh and crunchy cucumber, fennel and fronds, I found the yuzu dressing a perfect companion to the fish.
I never usually go for the specials, but when our lovely waitress told me about this I literally couldn’t contain my excitement. The fondu came out bubbling in all it’s cheesy glory. The risk of third degree burns was the only thing stopping me from demolishing it there and then.
Rib On The Bone 320G $39.9
Not really one to ever order a steak at a restaurant, I decided to break the trend and go for the rib. I mean come on the place is called Chophouse!
The rib was cooked to medium rare perfection, slicing like butter. There was a nice crust accentuating the flavours of the seasoning mixed with caramelised fat, while the pink meat was tender and juicy.
Glazed Beef Short Rib 350G $36
This delectable wedge of beef was something special. The sticky sweet glaze really infuses the meat with a moreish flavour. Melt in your mouth goodness.
Wedge Salad $10.9
A really lovely accompaniment to our mains was this fresh wedge salad with slow cooked egg, speck, parmesan and a creamy dijonnaise dressing.
Apple Crumble Semifreddo $12.5
A twist on a dessert I cherish. The semifreddo was lusciously smooth with an intense apple cinnamon flavour. The spiced oats and walnut crumble added a nice change of texture while the poached apple with rhubarb compote intensified the deserts main flavours.
Chophouse Swiss Milk Chocolate and Honeycomb Block 150g $10.9
Well hello there my pretty! This was my favourite part of the night. The giant block comes to the table where the waiter skilfully hacks it to bite size pieces.
Rich, creamy, crunchy and sweet the chocolate was everything I could have hoped for and more. Because we were stuff to the point of exploding I could only manage a piece or two, so our lovely waitress boxed it up for us to take home.
Chophouse is an excellent dining establishment, with a great casual and buzzing atmosphere that’s warm and inviting. The food, as you can see, was top notch and the service is fantastic. Check it out for any occasion.
