There is an old proverb which says ‘Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day but teach him how to fish and he will never go hungry’.
We’ve come up with our own version which goes ‘Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day but show him a burger and he’ll probably never order the fish again’.
Test drive our proverb with today’s meaty Big Deal at The Chophouse Brasserie in the Merchant City.
With offers on gourmet burgers, rib racks and sirloin steaks, it’s the perfect deal for the meat lover in your life.
The Chophouse Brasserie is a classic steakhouse in Glasgow’s Merchant Square. Combining the atmosphere of New York in the Twenties and Thirties with the tastes of today, it serves only certified
Angus Beef steaks and local farm products including veal, lamb and pork.
Burger or ribs
Option one is for two people to each tuck into a gourmet Chophouse burger or a rack of Fall Off The Bone Baby Ribs.
The Chophouse burgers are made with Scottish Aberdeen Angus beef, topped with Swiss Emmental or Applewood smoked cheddar and served with chunky skin-on Maris Piper chips.
The tender baby back ribs are slow cooked and served in your choice of three glazes: piri piri. BBQ or honey and mustard. They come with coleslaw and chunky skin-on Maris Piper chips.
Option two of today’s Big Deal is for two people to each enjoy a succulent 7oz sirloin steak and a glass of house wine at The Chophouse Brasserie.
This cut is from the centre section of the short loin which consistently produces the winning combo of fantastic flavour and great texture. It will be served with roasted cherry tomatoes and chunky skin-on Maris Piper chips or a side salad.
Valid from noon to 10pm, seven days a week, this fab Big Deal would be perfect for lunch, a romantic meal, a pre-show bite or a break in a shopping trip.
The Chophouse Brasserie has no shortage of fans. A recent TripAdvisor review reckoned that it was ‘excellent… been here a few times, the food was excellent and the staff very nice, couldn’t do more for us. In fact enjoyed it so much, we had the works Christmas party there.’
A Facebook post was more succinct but just as enthusiastic writing ‘Lovely early dinner, great service, brilliant value for money!’
