The Best Burgers In Hong Kong

Burger Joys

Burger Joys prides itself on using 100% USDA chilled black Angus beef with a one-of-a-kind Brioche Bun, created by a famous French pastry chef from Las Vegas. The result? A fully loaded burger bursting with quality ingredients. The idea is that the top tier method and recipe means a high-quality consistent burger for every customer. The soft, fresh and fluffy qualities are all thanks to the precisely-measured baking process done in its top-secret bakery. The experts say we couldn’t make it even if they gave us the recipe – and all you need is one bite to believe it!

Beef & Liberty

Beef & Liberty is a bona fide Hong Kong classic, with the skilled team perfecting that all-important bun to patty ratio. This fun, affordable and upbeat concept has a real focus on quality ingredients. The hamburgers, for instance, use only the best grass-fed, hormone and antibiotic-free beef from Scottish Highland cattle. Along with its classic beef offerings, Beef & Liberty serves up vegetarian and/or vegan alternatives which use the famed IMPOSSIBLE meat, tasty Falafel and Quinoa as meat substitutes. Yes please!

Vegetarian or vegan options available? Yes

Sassy Tip: Check out the Double Trouble offer every Monday from 6pm at all locations (excluding the airport) – buy any burger and a drink to receive the second burger free! Available for dine-in only.

BLT Burger

Found in Harbour City in TST, BLT Burger serves up a wide variety of burgers to hungry Hongkongers, with a menu that ranges from classic beef burgers ($88), to the likes of the “Canton Road” pork and shrimp burger ($88). The offering at this joint is extensive, and sure to please burger fans of all tastes. We’re particularly fond of the Buffalo Chicken burger ($98), which gives us all of the delicious taste of buffalo wings without any of the mess!

Be sure to complete your meal with a side of our favourite waffle fries ($30).

Don’t miss the Onion Rings ($38), Wings ($88) and Shakes (from $68) too. The best bit?

The Butchers Club

With multiple locations to choose from, The Butchers Club Burger is always a solid option. Whether it’s meat, chicken or veg you’re after, the varied menu at this chain delivers on all fronts. We love The Gambler ($140), consisting of a juicy chicken thigh ​marinated in buttermilk, which is then deep fried and tossed in Frank’s Red Hot sauce, and topped with lettuce, coleslaw, pickles and a creamy blue cheese dressing. The vegan options using Beyond Burger patties ($120) are also a must-try!

Electric Ave

Sai Ying Pun favourite Electric Ave may be small, but its burger offering is mighty, winning rave reviews from all corners of the city. This burger joint prides itself on delivering stunning flavour combos and top notch ingredients. The Chicken Carbonara is a standout ($150), though if you’re a stickler for the classics, we recommend the Black Cheddar ($175). Complete your feast with a side of Rosemary Fries ($40).

Five Guys

Five Guys has been around for a hot minute now in Hong Kong, yet its locations still command queues upon queues – which tells you everything you need to know really. Expect hearty American-style burgers, generous portions of handcut fries (cooked in peanut oil) and signature shakes galore. Burgers start at a reasonable $55 – just make sure you don’t fill up on the bottomless peanuts while waiting for your order.

Vegetarian or vegan options available? Veggie sandwiches are available

Now with two locations – one in Tsuen Wan and the original tucked away on Sun Street in Wan Chai – Honbo is a firm fan favourite here at Team Sassy. Describing itself as a “grassroots burger restaurant”, Honbo takes pride in sourcing the very best produce, with everything from its buns, veggies and beer coming from local sources. We love the Honbo Burger ($88), made with three two-ounce beef patties, homemade pickles, house sauce and cheese, as well as the Soft Shell Crab Burger ($138) with crab, chicken liver pate and Kewpie. Make sure to wash your meal down with a beer – Honbo stocks local brewery favourites including Moonzen and Heroes.

We’re huge fans of Morty’s Rueben sandwiches, but this NY-style deli also serves up a mean burger. Our top pick is the Double Smoked Meat Burger ($148), with cheddar cheese, tomato, lettuce, pickles and Thousand Island dressing. In the evening, the burger comes with your choice of fries or a salad, but we recommend upgrading your fries and indulging in Morty’s Poutine for an extra $30.

Shady Acres

Shady Acres might be best known for its incredible drinks deals, but we’ve heard on the grapevine that its burger offering is one to watch. In particular, the Impossible Cheeseburger ($125) might well be one of the best veggie buns in town. Run don’t walk people!

Shake Shack

Ever since landing in the 852 two years ago, Shake Shack has become somewhat of an institution. Just as good as those found stateside, the burgers at this pick can be enjoyed at some of the best prices in the city (starting at $50 for a single ShackBurger). Whether you opt for a classic ShackBurger or the veggie ‘Shroom Burger ($66), don’t leave without trying one of the delicious hand-spun shakes (from $42).
