The Chophouse is a welcome change from all the offices and commercial buildings you find in the financial district. It’s an interesting restaurant, with rustic décor and cattle heads hanging from the ceiling. We had a large booth, which made for a great evening. The atmosphere was fun and lively, and the whole restaurant was full of life.

We kicked off the evening with cocktails. I ordered ‘The Savvy Italian’ it’s made with a mix of Aperol, Elderflower Shrub, and Dry Sauvignon Blanc. A simple mix, but incredibly satisfying. My partner ordered a ‘Smoked Pear Martini’ which comprised of Tanqueray Gin, Ardbeg Single Malt Scotch, Lemon Juice, Pear Nectar, Almond Syrup, and a Pork Scratching and Honey rim. A more complex drink, but equally as enjoyable.

To begin we ordered Heirloom Tomato and Buffalo Mozzarella, prepared with Crème Fraiche, Black Garlic and Pangritata, a simple dish done well. We also ordered the Scallop Ceviche, prepared with QLD Scallops, Avocado, Corn, Coconut, Lime and Flat Bread, another delicious starter.

“We had a wonderful dining experience.”

The Chophouse have wide range of meat options as you might guess, so we decided to sample a couple of dishes. I ordered a 320g Rib on the Bone with Chutney and Jus. The rib was wonderfully cooked, and tasted delicious. My partner ordered a Grain Fed Fillet on the Bone. Which was a 320g cut of Riverine Premium Beef, also served with Chutney and Jus. We selected a Pepper Sauce which was a great choice, and added sides of Crisp Brussels Sprouts, with Tea Soaked Raisins, Speck and Walnuts, and Potato Puree, made with Victorian Dutch Creams potatoes. The Chophouse lived up to their reputation, the beef was spot on.

Our dessert choice was an interesting one. At The Chophouse they offer a Swiss Chocolate Block. It’s a 150g Honeycomb Milk Chocolate Block, which is brought out on a wooden chopping board with a small hatchet. It was both fun and delicious chipping away pieces of chocolate, I have to recommend trying this if you visit.

We enjoyed a bottle of Hay Shed Hill, Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River, 2012 throughout the evening. We had a wonderful dining experience, the menu was interesting, the food was enjoyable, and we would happily return.
