Hong Kong Dining: The Best Burgers in Hong Kong

The Perfect Patty


The news that Shake Shake will be arriving in Hong Kong put us all into a tizzy, and now burgers are on the top of our mind. Since we’ll have to wait until 2018 for Shake Shack to open, we’ve got a variety of burger options to help tide you over in the meantime! From the classic cheeseburger to Mexican inspired versions to veggie options, we’ve got something for everyone.

Best for: Classic (tie)

Classic Burger, Quarter Master

Quarter Master is one of our favourite neighborhood spots. All the meat comes from the next door butcher shop, Bones and Blades, (which has some of the best meat we’ve come across in HK) so we know we are always getting a fresh, quality burger. Their classic burger ($90) is our go to and we also love the spicy lamb burger ($90) for when we want to switch things up.

Wagyu Burger, Granville Island Hong Kong

Although this classic is made a bit fancier (and more expensive at $168) by using Waygu, it more than satisfies our craving for a really good, simple burger. Sometimes you just don’t want all that extra stuff piled on! We also love its buffalo wings and beer selection.

Best For: An Elevated Take on the Classic

The Butcher’s Burger, Blue

All beef here is aged in Blue’s very own Himalayan Salt Chamber – you read that right, a chamber – so you can be sure the experts here know what they’re doing! The aptly named Butcher’s Burger features sweet caramelised onions, sharp melted cheddar, and a secret sauce that we’re still trying to get the recipe for. Accompanied with hefty homemade fries, this dish is a tried-and-tested classic. The only caveat is the #treatyoself price of $260.

Best for: Veggie Option

Falafel Burger, Beef & Liberty

For a veggie option, the Falafel burger ($98) at Beef & Liberty packs a protein punch. With a Middle Eastern twist, it’s loaded with delicious harissa yoghurt, tahini and lemon juice. For every one of these babies sold, Beef & Liberty will donate $8 to The Nature Conservancy Hong Kong.

Best for: Brunch

The Red Eye Reduction, The Butchers Club Burger

Only available from 8am-12pm on weekends, this beast of a burger is an incentive to get out of bed. A dry-aged beef patty is smashed between French toast buns and includes gooey cheddar, maple bacon, a runny egg, hash browns and hollandaise sauce for $120. Go big or stay home.

Best For: Fusion Flavors

The El Loco Burger, Tai Hang Bar & Grill

Tai Hang Bar & Grill serves up a lip-smacking menu of fusion delights and its El Loco Burger ($180) steals the spotlight. A flame-grilled patty smothered in Montgomery Jack Cheese, Chili Con Carne, Japapeños, all-important guac, salsa and sour cream and topped with a fried egg, this is a Mexican feast of colossal proportions. Complete with a side of chips, come hungry and leave happy.

Best for: Ruining Your Diet

Foie Gras Burger, Burgeroom

Burgeroom serves one of the best burgers we’ve had in Hong Kong. If you’re looking to really chow down, we highly recommend this burger joint for something different. It has seafood, chicken and duck, plus vegetarian burger options on top of the usual juicy beef. We absolutely love its indulgent Foie Gras Burger ($158) (although we get it isn’t for everyone!), and we’ve heard its Lobster Burger ($198) is the bomb if you’re looking for a treat. Don’t forget to try its Guacamole Cheese Fries ($62), which make the perfect sides!

Best for: Chicken “Burgers” (three-way tie)

Buffalo Chicken Burger, BLT Burger

For all you non-beef eaters out there, we’ve found the perfect burger for you! BLT Burger’s Buffalo Chicken burger ($98) has enough flavour to satisfy all your fast food cravings in one dish. The fried chicken is coated in red-hot sauce, and served in a bun with avocado, chopped lettuce, Maytag blue cheese, and ranch dressing. The delicious taste of buffalo wings without the mess…what more could you ask for?! Let’s just say this meal definitely has the ability to guilt trip you into going to the gym!

The Gambler, The Butchers Club Burger​

If you’re looking for something different to your usual beef​ burger and love a bit of fried chicken (like us!), you can’t go wrong with The Gambler ($140) from The Butchers Club Burger. Consisting of a juicy chicken thigh ​marinated in buttermilk, deep fried and tossed in Frank’s Red Hot sauce, the burger is then topped with lettuce, coleslaw, pickles, and a creamy blue cheese dressing.

​Sassy tip: Don’t order this burger if you’re not willing to get a little messy! We recommend tucking a bib in before getting stuck in to avoid any outfit mishaps. Hot sauce isn’t the easiest to wash out – trust us.

Electric Ave

If you can catch it when it’s open, you’ll be able to treat yourself to some amazing burger options. We overheard someone say she’d sell her grandma for the Smokey Carbonara Chicken Burger ($110). If you’re happy to wait and take your chance at a seat, it’s hands down, one of the best burgers in town. The bone marrow chips are to die for.

Other Faves:

The Big Bite

The burgers here range from simple classics all the way to the more unique peanut butter and jam burger (omg). All sizeable patties are served on the freshest Kaiser bread rolls. Stop by this cool Canadian spot on Tuesday nights for even more bang for your buck for $3 juicy buffalo wings with purchase of any beer.

The Big Bite, Shop 4B G/F Kar Fu Building, 196-202 Java Road, North Point, Hong Kong, www.facebook.com/TheBigBiteHK

Burger King

Sometimes you just need a fast food burger and BK will be our pick every time!
