Chops is one of those success stories that restaurateurs dream about. Established in 2015 by Scottish-born Richard Andrew Bardsley, the emerging chain of burger joints has so far opened one new location every year.
The unstoppable rise of the burger behemoth that is Chops continues with the opening of a third restaurant.
Burger lovers, this one’s for you. Recently opened SunKat’s has all the potential to be Hanoi’s most popular go-to for beef ‘n’ buns.

Finally Hanoi has a dedicated gourmet burger joint, and this West Lake eatery with its fan-cooled atmosphere get it just about right. This is comfort food at its finest. Served up with locally brewed craft beer, and this one’s a bit of a winner.
Show me a man who hasn’t waxed lyrical about a pattie of meat and two bits of bun in his hand, and I’ll show you a man who hasn’t lived. A good burger is simply good food, so it’s no surprise that it’s been on the surge here for a while in food-loving Vietnam. Yet, far from being sated, in Ho Chi Minh City the public’s hunger for a high quality and still affordable burger option has remained. Enter Relish & Sons.
Stakes are high in the burger game these days, with newcomers like Quan Ut Ut and Chuck’s carving out the best-burger territory already hotly disputed by the likes of Scott and Binh’s, Bernie’s and Mogambo. And with the stage set, the mouths behind Racha Room figured Saigon might be ready for their rendition.

A favourite among those who roam further west of the city centre, this multi-storey restobar has been going strong for more than two years. It has balconies, mezzanine seating and a long bar guarding exactly 50 different cocktails. For many the Ete burger is right on the mark as are the sandwiches, tartines and salads. It’s always crowded — especially during the weekends. Amiable staff, pleasant vibes.
