Má Pêche's Lemongrass-Chili Butter Burger

New, 1 comment

For his Burger Week special, Má Pêche chef Tien Ho went for a big, beefy patty, and a garnish that provides some crunchiness and kick. It's a flame-grilled 8 oz LaFrieda blend of chuck and some short rib, on a Tom Cat Bakery brioche bun, with a pickled jalapeno and cabbage slaw that's dressed in fish sauce, cilantro and Thai basil. Instead of cheese, chef Tien created a lemongrass-chili butter made with breadcrumbs, so that it both adds some creaminess on top of the meat and provides some crackly texture. Instead of fries, he opted for puffy fish chips — a nice light side to a very big burger.
