L’European burger – the best of Europe

Euro_blog

 

 

It’s well known that we at Haché have had a long, on-going love affair with all things French – their wines, champagnes and amazing cheeses.

However, we also love our Spanish Chorizo, and our German and Belgian beers.

The fresh herbs in our dips and sauces are grown all over Europe. Our meat is the best there is, and is all sourced in Scotland.

We even offer a choice of bun; French Brioche or Italian Ciabatta.

We’ve come up with a burger to celebrate the variety of complimentary flavours that go into making our burgers, and our menu so special.

Taking the best Europe has to offer, we’re pleased to present L’European Burger, a juicy prime Scotch Steak topped with Spanish chorizo, Czech beer-battered onion ring strings, sitting on pickled German gherkins, Romain lettuce, English tomatoes, Coriander mayo served on toasted French Brioche or Italian Ciabatta for £10.95

Available from July 8th in all Haché restaurants, for a limited time only.

To celebrate its launch we are offering a 2 for 1 this Tuesday 12th when ordering two ‘L’European’ burgers; one will be free with our compliments.

‘BURGER & BOLLY’ – Absolutely Fabulous!

Bolly_n_burger
We may be coming out of Europe, but we at Haché still love our French Champagne, and to celebrate the Absolutely Fabulous movie premiere, we are featuring our indulgent Steak ‘Triomphe des truffes’ burger accompanied by our truffled Gruyère cheese frites – served with a flute of Bollinger Champagne.

We’ve never ‘minced’ our words about being at the upper end of the burger market, so we think the ‘Burger & Bolly’ will go down well with our customers.

This exclusive offer will be available in Haché Chelsea for a week following the premiere of the movie from 1st of July at a darling price of £19.95.

Talking of films, we have been busy producing a film of our own. Hope you like it, feel free to share it.

As a litte extra, if you are a Cineworld Unlimited member you can enjoy 15% off your bill every day at Haché Chelsea, perfect for a pre or post cinema date.

Mmm la la, the ‘Haché Experience’

We asked our staff and loyal customers what they thought
‘The Haché experience’ was.
We were nicely surprised by the fact that most of them said it was ‘more of a feeling’ than something ‘merely expressed in words’. We tried to put it all in this video which we are very proud to show you.

For your chance to win a £100 restaurant invite to your selected Haché let us know what ‘The Haché Experience’ means to you.

Visit our facebook page, find our Haché Experience post and tell us what it means to you.

There will be 5 winners, one for each site, so don’t forget to let us know which is your nearest Haché.

Bonne chance.

Lifting the lid on our new menu

Our chefs have been hard at work experimenting over the last few months on new dishes with amazing flavours.
We’ve also listened to your feedback regarding your favourite monthly specials.

We are very proud to present our 2016 Menu, we’re confident it is our best ever menu and are sure you will love it as much as we all do here at Haché.

lamb
Most of our new creations are burgers which have had exceptional reception as Chef’s Specials, so you can expect to find a sophisticated Steak Triomphe de Truffes, a new hot version of our Steak Mexicain, as well as our new Mediterranean Lamb burger, new Chicken Aphrodite and of course vegetarian choices and crisp salads for the summer.

New entrées and side dishes

side
We didn’t stop at main dishes. We are introducing a seriously indulgent Baked Camembert, drizzled in honey and chilli flakes.
Added to our new entrée choice are incredibly ‘more-ish’ sweetcorn fritters.

That’s not all. Our Truffled cheese frites are now on the Main Menu, as is our signature Ratatouille to give a real French flavour to our Sides Menu.

There are many more surprises on our new 2016 menu, and we can’t wait to present them to you.
Our new menu is available from Thursday 5th May in all Haché restaurants.

Bon appetit!

The Dublin experience

guinnes
I was very lucky to have been taken around the Guinness factory and Teelings Whiskey distillery last weekend courtesy of Adrian at Tanners Wines. If you haven’t been then we can’t recommend either highly enough. The Guinness building is immense and spans at least 8 floors, tracking the production process, finishing up in a sky bar overlooking the whole of Dublin, with views stretching all the way to the Guinness water source at the Wicklow mountains.
pint
The combination of Victorian engineering and modern building techniques combine brilliantly to give this iconic brand the representation that it duly deserves. Our personal favourite was the advert suite, a 180 degree cinema room with polished concrete floors and Bose surround sound made you feel like part the advert itself. The sense of community they create and the theatre of the spectacle were skin tinglingly awesome. Whilst many would argue the surfers and white horses advert with the bone chilling sound track, Phat Planet by Leftfield, is perhaps the most iconic of their adverts my own personal favourite will always be that of the swimmer – witty and entertaining giving us a sense of pride for a fictional character we’ll never even meet, truly inspiring! Now all i need is a pint of the black stuff!!
Having doffed our cap to the drinking gods, sinking several pints of Guinness in the process we moved on via a horse and carriage to the Teelings Whiskey distillery.
horse outside
Established in 1782 Teelings is now the only working distillery in Dublin with a factory tour. My memory at this point was compromised by the aforementioned pints of Guiness we had put away earlier but i think I’m correct in saying that the production facility at Teelings has a continual flow of about 17,000 litres of whiskey in production using the same techniques as have been used since its beginnings, albeit, with a modern upgrade to scale and efficiencies.
inside
The three main stills pictured below are named after the three daughters of the Teeling family. Made of 7mm thick copper they are all hand beaten into shape and represent an investment of over €3M. The wort begins the process at 8% ABV and finishes at 86% ABV by the time it completes its third distillation. At this point the whiskey is crystal clear only later to take its colouring from the barrel as it ages. Hence, the older a whiskey, the darker it becomes.
teeling
At this point we were treated to a range of whiskeys including a 23 year old, sherry barrel aged, single malt. At €250 per bottle its not cheap but it’s definitely smooth enough to help swallow the price tag! We all agreed this was our favourite and made our way to the bar for a few more!
The above trips were a great insight into Dublin and a really enjoyable way to spend the day, especially as it was unsurprisingly raining!

A taste of Christmas

unnamed
People don’t notice whether its winter or summer when they’re happy!
– Anton Chekhov
The days may be short and the north wind may be blowing, but at Haché we’ve been busy making sure you will be happy this Christmas. Fairy lights twinkling, fires blazing and our Christmas menu is created to really ring your bells!
Our chef has risen nobly to the challenge of creating the true taste of Christmas in our seasonal Turkey Burger.
We’ve dipped our turkey in buttermilk, dusted it with breadcrumbs, topped it with a home-made pork and sage stuffing, salt cured bacon wrapped chipolatas and grilled Brussels sprouts… love or hate them, (you can always drop yours on your partner’s plate when they’re not looking!) We’ve served all that in a lightly toasted, soft brioche, with our chef’s very own cranberry dressing.
Our Turkey Burger is available from Monday 23rd November in all sites and also to help celebrate Thanksgiving with our American cousins, we’ll be running a special promotion – buy two turkey burgers and get one of them free.
 
Offer valid only for eat in customers on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday November 26th) when presenting this e-mail, subject to availability. T&C apply.
