Where the Chase for Food Ends
By Sujan Tiwari
A café serving tasty quick bites Aand filling main courses houses itself at Boudha. Burger Chase is a new addition in the list of good eateries in Kathmandu. The owners have a liquor store on the ground floor, and the cafe is on the first floor. Open only for three months, burger chase is already seeing a crowd of continental and Italian food lovers. “We were in trading business before and hospitality was a completely new arena for us. We took more than a year to acquire knowledge of food and to set up the place,” says Anupama l, owner of the café.
The cafe spreads in a wide hall furnished with comfortable chairs and tables. The walls are all painted white and the huge windows give a hint of spaciousness. The place is simple, bright and cozy, with several indoor plants here and there. The windows offer a view of the busy Boudha street.
As the name suggests, the specialty here is burger. The most appreciated one here is chicken burger. Other variation includes chicken bacon burger and tenderloin burger. The burgers are served with cheese, lettuce tomato and mayonnaise along with fries. The burgers here are real juicy, pure pleasure in every bite. For vegetarians, Burger Chase offers special tofu burger.
Steaks are the next best thing at Burger Chase. For the steak, the meat of choice is marinated with salt, black and white pepper, garlic and herbs mixed with wine, and is kept for some time. Then the meat is grilled on a hot plate. The juicy steak is served with brown sauce. The sauce is prepared by boiling bones with celery leaves, bay leaves, basil, oregano, thyme and other herbs. The concentration is later strained and is fried with butter. The spicy sauce just perfectly complements the steak.
The steak is served beautifully with boiled vegetables, dipped in delicious brown sauce. Other food items here include sandwiches, hot dogs, pastas and crepes among others. “The number of dishes are limited but what we serve, we serve exceptionally well,” says Pokhrel. Several salads, soups and a few other dishes are also offered here. But the specialty here remains burgers and steaks.
As there is a huge collection of wine and spirits available downstairs, the owners recommend the suitable spirit for the specific food item. Red wine for red meat and white wine for white meat is a general suggestion. The owners would recommend you the perfect wine to go with your food, with pleasure.
An interesting thing here is that the guests can buy the liquor of their choice from the store downstairs at retail price, and enjoy it by paying only 10 % service charge. The guests can even bring their own spirits and consume it no extra charges except for the service charge. They can even deposit the unfinished bottle if they have had a bit too much. The bottle can be enjoyed next time without having to pay anything.
The place is frequented by the locals of the area and the foreigners staying in Boudha and neighboring areas. The owners claim the taste, the hygienic preparation process and the portions served to be the plus point of the cafe. The kitchen is open for everyone to see. A complementary lemon or ginger iced tea is served with every dish you order, and the regulars are offered at 10 % discount.
