Village Tavern's New Wagyu Burgers
A juicy char-grilled Wagyu beef patty with a variety of indulgent toppings on a fresh homemade pretzel bun...award-winning Chef Josh Boutwood does it again with four new Wagyu Burgers for Village Tavern.
Village Tavern unveils its new line of premium Wagyu burgers with different layers of exquisite toppings to level up your Wagyu experience, with each burger offering a different set of flavors for burger fans.
Just how can you top a Wagyu burger? Chef Josh Boutwood shows us four ways...Village Tavern's new Foie Gras Burger (P 890), premium Wagyu beef topped with Gruyere cheese, braised onions and seared foie gras on a homemade pretzel bun. The luxurious pan seared foie gras gives the burger a subtle degree of richness without overwhelming the palate, combining well with the juicy Wagyu beef, grilled cheese and sweet caramelized onions. And that homemade pretzel bun, crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy inside, completes the burger experience. All burgers come with fries. Just can't get better than that...
And here's the beef...juicy, rich and flavorful Wagyu beef patty with flecks of marbling for that unique and distinct and buttery melt-in-your-mouth consistency. According to Chef Josh, the quality of real Wagyu beef is excellent that it even surpasses the USDA marbling standards for prime grade beef.
With each ingredient blending well together for a medley of flavors and textures, Chef Josh Boutwood has another winner here. In fact, Chef Josh has four winners. "We are all very excited here at Village Tavern as we launch our Wagyu beef burgers because I am sure our guests will love the immense marbling and the delightful beef flavor in each bite," Chef Josh said.
The Tequila Burger (P 650), premium grade Wagyu beef topped with habanero-infused cheddar cheese, jalapenos, and tequila mayonnaise. A splash of tequila and some heat from habanero and jalapeno peppers add that extra kick for Southwestern flavors. The richness of the Wagyu beef and cheddar cheese is balanced by the heat of the peppers and a hint of tequila.
Each bite delivers a richness that can only come from Wagyu beef, and the tequila, habanero cheddar cheese, and jalapeno combination provides additional layers of flavor punctuated by a cooling heat. The heat isn't overwhelming, nor does it overpower the beef, but it does have a subtle kick that balances all the flavors. Pour some of the tequila mayo and enjoy.
The Truffle Burger (P 625), premium Wagyu beef topped with rich truffle mayonnaise, asiago cheese and sauteed shitakes. Wagyu, truffles and mushrooms are another combination that plays well with the richness of the Wagyu beef, providing earthy and nutty layers of flavor.
The truffle-infused mayo is generously spread on the homemade pretzel bun, crowned by the premium Wagyu beef patty and topped with velvety asiago cheese and sauteed shitake mushrooms for another unique blend of flavors.
The Reuben Burger (P 595), premium Wagyu beef topped with gruyere cheese, homemade corned beef brisket, pickled cabbage and a sunny side-up. The sharp, briny flavors of the homemade corned beef brisket and pickled cabbage, comforting and familiar flavors of the classic Reuben, contrasts with the rich Wagyu beef and sunny side up for balanced flavors. Take a bite, a big bite, and let the egg ooze down on the sides for even more flavor.
