the "authentic premium burger trend" in hong kong has been cooled down for a bit, but it'll never totally fade out since hamburger has always been one of the most popular and favourite food in all parts of the world.
this venue has gained the reputation of being the best burger joint in town from numerous mediae and customer reviews, as one of the burger fans i came with high expectations.
it's hidden in a quiet section of caroline hill road at tai hang side and found out that it's just few stores away from one my favourite local style burger stores, 丹麥餅店.
it's a small store and self served: just grab your seat and order your food at the counter.
i had a chili burger, regular fries and a bottle of snapple peach tea.
fries were thick-cut, nothing spectacular but when deep fried food is served fresh and hot, it can't be bad.
the burger was really, really thick (about 4"-5") that it was impossible to taste all layers with one bite. the beef patty was quite thick too and cooked just right. i was impressed by how juicy it was and i could taste the flavor of the beef itself since it was seasoned mildly, although i preferred a bit stronger taste.
the "chili" was very different than what i've expected. instead of the spicy beans and meat stew, it was basically coleslaw in spicy mayonnaise.
in general the burger was tasty, but there was a problem: the beef and tomato were so moist that the juice kept dripping down while eating (the mayo as well), which made the bun became soggy and my hands dirty. honestly it was a very messy eating experience.
the bill was $105, quite expensive. i've tried other burger venues with similar quality and lower prices.
the food is good, but "the best burger in town" sounds exaggerated to me.
although i might not come again unless my wallet becomes as thick as the burger here, it stills worths a smiley.
