Hop Saint: Best of the Beach 2018 Chili

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

We hope you only get hungry for chili only once a week because that’s how often Hop Saint serves it. Orders start coming out of the kitchen on Sunday at noon, and it lasts until it’s gone. On rare occasions, they have some left over which they serve on Monday but don’t count on it. This is so good, the long-simmered stew accented by smoky shreds and chunks of the burnt ends of meat from their barbecue. It’s served in a hot skillet topped with chopped purple onion, a dollop of sour cream and decorative cilantro leaf. On the side is the best, corniest cornbread you’ve ever had. It’s worth putting a recurring reminder in your phone’s calendar that tells you to head to Hop Saint on Sunday for the best chili this side of Texas – and maybe there.
