Beer and burgers are an unbeatable combo. At Capital Craft you will find what is arguably the best burgers in Pretoria, but with a foodie edge. The space is also the go-to for hardcore craft beer fans thanks to a large library of local and imported beers and the laid-back vibe. As such, this Menlo Park beer bar's burger selection had to be a cut above the rest to stand tall next to the flavour-driven beers.
You can look forward to some seriously innovative pairings. From the bone marrow and blue cheese burger to a panko-crumbed chicken fillet with various toppings, or wolf down a mean, 250g beef patty stuffed with bacon, sundried tomatoes, Jalapenos, white and yellow cheddar, and finished with a homemade cheese and beer-jalapeno sauce. The Menlo Park burger joint also crafts most of its sauces from scratch and uses only homemade buns for its creations.
Vegans or those who occasionally ditch meat won’t be left on the sideline - a few of the burgers are served only with plant-based ingredients. And you’re welcome to swap out any of the meat patties for a Beyond Burger vegan burger option for a small additional fee.
Don't be intimidated to ask one of the barmen or waiters for a craft beer recommendation to pair with your burger.
Must-try burger: De Poes burger (as in the famous Belgian craft beer, for all you dirty-minded ones). Think pulled pork crumbed patty nestled in a Belgian waffle bun, fresh garnish, mozzarella, bacon, a dash of De Poes pilsner basil aioli, and an egg. Vegans can give the Cheeky-Pea Bun a shot with a crispy, shallow-fried chickpea falafel patty laid on a bed of freshly sliced onion, lettuce, and tomato topped with melted vegan cheese
