Relaxed South London restaurants Ben’s Canteen (with a venue in both Earlsfield and Battersea) are launching an exciting and innovative menu of new burgers, each matched to a perfect wine partner.
Launching this month the menu sees Ben’s signature internationally inspired, playful menu of burgers receive an overhaul with new additions such as the Posh Fried Chicken, served with Champagne; The Hawaiian with a French Gamay; and the mighty Salad Dodger with a New Zealand Pinot Noir.
From just £10.50 for a burger and with wines from just £3.75 by the glass this is a playful and accessible way to give a new wines a try and enter into the world of food matching.
Burgers are 8oz aged beef patties from local butcher HG Walter, and the glazed buns are from Wimbledon’s Millers Bakery (also available bunless on request with slaw thrown in) and served with salad and either regular or sweet potato fries.
Ben’s Canteen prides themselves on an exciting wine list with most regions represented, and a really solid by-the-glass list too. Wine is from £18.50 per bottle, with regular promotions running to encourage guests to adventure beyond their usual tipple.
The Burger and Wine menu will launch on the 20th May at both sites.
Burgers don’t quite do it for you? You’re in luck…
Pizza also gets the sommelier treatment at Ben’s this May with a one-off pop up from Well Kneaded at the Earlsfield site on May 31st. Dishes like the Meaty Margaret (chorizo, ‘nduja, Fior di latte, tomato and oregano) should be washed down with an Argentinian Republica del Malbec, Mattias Riccitelli 2011 Mendoza. And the Spicy Special (tikka lamb shoulder, coriander, yoghurt and tomato) with Hugonell, Rioja Crianza Garanacha 2012.
