Chock full of international and inventive cuisine, Hong Kong is a food lover’s dream city. From French to Italian, British to Japanese, the options are endless and the quality is incredibly high, rivaling New York and London in both taste and price. However, burgers are the food of the people so read on for our guide to the top 10 in Hong Kong.
Yes, it’s a popular Hong Kong chain but it also offers up exceedingly delicious, juicy burgers and is conveniently located in six spots throughout the city – perfect if you’re on the go but want to indulge in one of their 100% pure beef burgers anyway. We recommend you start your day with their legendary breakfast burger, a heavenly concoction including fried egg, crispy bacon, melted cheese, Triple O secret sauce, and a toasted bun.
Originating in Shanghai, Beef & Liberty is dedicated to serving beef burgers made from hormone-free, grass fed cows. Boasting a veritably casual and fun-loving vibe, this would be the perfect spot to hit up friends after a busy day and to enjoy a succulent burger. Go for the classic cheeseburger (the original is always the best, or so they say), which has been perfected over the years, and savor the lean, delectable patty dripping in melted cheese and accented perfectly by the toasted bun and crunchy salad additions.
The place to be for vegetarians who have a burger craving, Cafe Causette offers delightful tofu options which are perfectly delicious and rival the beef version that you can also find here too. Try out the hot and spicy tofu burger, complete with organic tomato relish and harissa flavored fries, or go for the classic beef burger with onion and gherkin additions. Aside from the food, the service and quality is five-star, as you’d expect from the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, and the price reflects this.
burgeRoom’s sizable burgers will satisfy even the most ravenous diner, as will their equally sizable menu with an impressive range of options. Located on one of Causeway Bay’s quieter side streets, burgeRoom is an unassuming venue with good quality burgers. You must check out the bestselling foie gras burger, which sits atop a portobella cheese base and is absolutely fantastic. Equally, the soft shell crab with homemade tartar sauce or the lobster burgers is another popular choice.
Sensational burgers served from suburban storefronts at opposite sides of the city; choose from the Sham Shui Po location or the Tai Kok Tsui spot. Whichever you choose the burgers are awesome, although Burgerman resembles a take-away more than a restaurant. Tuck into the Trucker Burger, with double everything (beef, bacon and cheese) and topped with a fried egg, onions and mushrooms. Alternatively, check out the Danish Blue, with tender beef and blue cheese deliciousness.
One of Hong Kong’s longest running burger joints, Burger Joys continues to be one of the best. This fantastic restaurant imports the ingredients from America, meaning you can enjoy a little taste of home in Hong Kong, or even just get a taste of an American diner experience. Their special sauce adds a delicious flavor to each mouthful, especially on their signature, majestic Double Cheese Burger. Two patties, crispy bacon, creamy cheddar-like cheese, and the kick of fresh salad comes together to create a truly impressive burger. Easily one of the best burger spots in Hong Kong.
Cajun/Southern food at its best in Hong Kong, Restoration also serves an excellent burger, in and among all the fried chicken, gumbo and biscuits. Situated in quite a small space, Restoration is cozy comfort, with wooden tables and chairs and a friendly, eager-to-please staff. The burger itself offered at Restoration is flavorsome, juicy and peppery, offering a perfect balance of flavors between the melted cheese and soft, toasted bun. Simple and solid, Restoration is the perfect burger joint if you just need good old comfort food.
Famed for its off-menu Double Happiness Burger, The Butchers Club burgers are social media celebrities and live up to their well-earned reputation – prepared on site double beef patties, a double helping of American cheese, double maple bacon, caramelized onion, and mayonnaise are sandwiched between toasted grilled cheese rolls. It is decadence made real, and very, very tasty. To access other secret menu items simply scan the QR code and make sure to taste test the triple-cooked (in goose fat) fries.
This homage to American diner eating is owned and run by an expat American couple, who go to town on authenticity in both the decor and the food. The stools and booths were shipped in from Chicago and there’s even a converted red Cadillac booth that can be booked in advance. Retro touches abound in this classy establishment and the chilled vibe only adds to the dining experience which now goes from brunch to dinner. Check out The Diner‘s Skirt burger, served in a fluffy brioche bun and featuring an oversized grilled slice of American cheese. Accompany with deep fried dill pickles.
