Chatto Bites at Assembly Grounds: On-The-Go Japanese Favorites in a Bun
There is a new place in Assembly Grounds at The Rise, Makati where you can get your classic Japanese favorites in an easy to eat burger form! Introducing Chatto Bites, a newly-opened Japanese-inspired burger joint ideal for everyone on-the-go.
Chatto Bites’ Original Burgers
Who says burgers are just bun, patty, mayo, ketchup, and TLC (tomato, lettuce, cheese)? In Chatto Bites, there are four categories for their sumptuous and mouth-watering burgers—Original Burgers, Rice Burgers, Beef Burgers, and Special Burgers.
Under the category of Original Burgers are four varieties of chicken sandwiches elevated with the flavors of Japan. All of these come with their own special sauce and a generous serving of fresh lettuce, tomato, and onion.
Take a big bite of the Karaage Burger (Php 200) and enjoy the deep-fried chicken patty drizzled with wasabi tomato sauce.

Their Miso Chicken Burger (Php 230) showcases the heavenly combination of chicken katsu and red miso sauce, which can be enjoyed as a snack or a quick meal.

Lastly, fans of tsukune or Japanese chicken meatball that is usually served in a skewer and eaten with egg will love its now simplified form—the Tsukune Tamago Burger (Php 230).

The Rice Burgers, on the other hand, ditches the bread bun and uses sticky rice to sandwich all the party in between!
Choose between Buta Kimchi Rice Burger (Php 180) or Yakiniku Rice Burger (Php 200), which both contain flavorful and tender meat. You’ll be coming back for more!

For Beef Burgers, Chatto Bites uses the thick and juicy Japanese hamburg steak instead of the regular beef patty. Enjoy one with or without cheese. We’re warning you, it’s quite a mouthful!

Last among the burgers is the Special Burgers, which shows how versatile the food selection of Chatto Bites is even though it mainly focuses on burgers. Aside from chicken and beef, they also have fish and egg patties.
You may sample these with their Tachiuo Kabayaki Burger (Php 250), which contains deep-fried swordfish and Ahi Tuna Burger (Php 280) that has a unique lightly seared tuna topped with bell pepper sauce as the patty.
The Tamagoyaki Burger (Php 180), on the other hand, is a simple yet filling burger with thick Japanese omelet and red wine sauce in between buns.
