I'm sure if you are a foodie/food lover, you would have definitely heard of the name 時新.
And if you do happened to live in Kowloon or Hung Hom like me, you would definitely paid countless visits to 時新.
Although an extremly lazy person like me rarely goes as far as 時新 from my home. I do happened to go there once I get the chance.
Thanks to C
who hadn't tried 時新 before, I got a reason to persuade myself to taste the heavenly HK styled hamburger once again.
It was clear to us that without doing much thinking, we decided to order two Double Cheese and Egg Hamburger (雙層芝士蛋漢堡) right away. Perhaps the only thing you would comment on your whole experience at 時新 is the waiting period. The waiting period took quite a while, at least 5-10 minutes. The shop was small and crowded, with limited seats and air-conditioning/fans, we had no choice but to stand by the serving bar...it wasn't a pleasant wait.
The busy lady
Nevertheless, just by starring at this busy lady trying hard to fry the eggs and beef in a short amount of time was enough to make me forgotten about the waiting for a while. It was quite an amazing scenery to watch.
We didn't dine in due to the unattractive seating conditions. We decided to do takeaways instead. The packaging of the hamburgers were quite special and attractive, at least is something of a special design that I would take a second to look at.
I can gurantee you that, the following process is as the most heavenly eating experience you could imagine for hamburgers. Just by pulling down the plastic paper was enough to electrify your smelling sense! And the next second your eyes are telling you that a freshly cooked beef, nicely fried double egg, and just-melted double layered of cheese were greatly placed in between two soft pieces of bread. Not only did they smell good but every bite I had, the ingredients of the hamburger were greatly combined in terms of flavour and texture. We chose the sauce as Salad dressing so it provided a lighter flavour along with the freshly cooked beef and the plain flavour of egg and cheese. I guess anything that is freshly cooked would be good - and same for this fantastic hamburger.
Only one thing to comment would be the size of the hamburger was quite small. I could still remember the first time I had this was around 3 - 4 years ago, the hamburger was slightly bigger and the price was cheaper.. too bad.
All in all, 時新 is definitely going to be my all time favourite and I dare to say that 時新 is the proud of Hong Kong. The only place that you can find good HK Styled Hamburgers!- Y
