Burger Joys: Delicious Burgers in Wan Chai

28 August, 2015

A NEW BURGER JOINT ON LOCKHART ROAD

Situated across the street from Carnegie’s and Typhoon in Wan Chai, it’s easy to see why Burger Joys has chosen this renowned watering hole spot as its home. Open 24 hours a day, Burger Joys is exactly what you’ll crave after one too many drinks on Lockhart Road and you can even bring the party there as they serve alcohol (a major plus when trying to escape the Wan Chai crowds!). They have an extensive menu at this new burger joint, which includes vegetarian options, and we stopped by for lunch to see what all the fuss was about.

All the burgers here have a basic structure, which consists of: butter lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, and burger sauce.

2 Vegetarian burger

The Mushroom burger made our vegetarian feel like she wasn’t missing out on this indulgent eating experience. The patty was made from mushrooms and potato, and she added an extra order of egg for some protein! It held together surprisingly well throughout the whole meal. The mushroom burger doesn’t look that big, but don’t let this first impression fool you; it’s a hearty serving!

3 Chicken burger

Sometimes when I order a Chicken Burger it can be overcooked and I have incredible difficulty eating even half of it. But the chicken at Burger Joys? Cooked the whole way through, moist, and very well balanced with everything else in my burger. The melted cheese on top really made it delicious though…

4 Classic Cheeseburger

The beef that they use at Burger Joys is imported from the U.S., so it’s no wonder the meat in the Classic Cheeseburger tasted so good. The patty was the perfect size for the bun and didn’t overwhelm the burger, making it easy to handle and preventing it from awkwardly slipping out of our hands.

To accompany our mouthwatering burgers were a selection of fries. All fries are cut into thin strips that are then deep-fried and patted clean of the excess oil.

5 Sweet Potato Fries

We couldn’t wait to try the Sweet Potato Fries – and for the first time I found somewhere in Hong Kong where they actually taste like the sweet potato fries I know and love! An incredibly light layer of salt is sprinkled over these babies and the sweetness of the potato adds a satisfying end to each and every fry.

6 Truffle Fries

Up next were the Black Truffle Fries, which are perhaps the tastiest fries on Burger Joys’s menu (the only issue is I haven’t even tried all of them yet!). The truffle isn’t overwhelming; you can definitely taste that distinct flavour, but it’s not too strong.

7 Cali Garlic Fries

Last but not least – the California Style Garlic Fries – one word: yum. If you’re not a fan of garlic, stay away. But just note that these fries are everything for a garlic-eater. Diced up garlic bits are sprinkled atop plain potato fries, and the taste is just strong enough to awaken your senses. To stay on the safe side, I’d suggest not leaning in too closely to anyone after eating these!

I would definitely bring my friends here, any time of day or night. Not that I haven’t already… and I may or may not have already got them hooked on the amazing fries, tater tots and frighteningly addictive vanilla milkshakes (yep, they put real ice cream in the milkshakes!). The staff are super friendly and are genuine in their customer service, which has been flawless. The food is consistent in quality, presentation, and taste and is exactly what you crave when you want a decent burger. Try not to get addicted to Burger Joys – I dare ya!
