[Hong Kong] When you have been to Hong Kong a number of times, you start to explore beyond the regular ‘staples’ and hunt for some international “street food”, such as burgers.
Some of Hong Kong’s best burger places include The Butcher’s Club (which was once listed in the Michelin Street Food guide), Beef & Liberty, Burger Joys, The Big Bite, and the famous Shake Shack.
A name that constantly comes out in the “Best Burgers In Hong Kong” guide is Honbo Burger.
There are some food places in Hong Kong that mostly the locals know about, and they are constantly filled.
Honbo is known among burger aficionados for their juicy burgers made using quality USDA meat. True enough, it was packed when I visited a weekday afternoon.
Because the place is small and slightly cramped, it is not a place to have long chats, but more an eat-and-go. However, vibes are energetic and vibrant, and it seems to be a favourite among officer workers nearby.
Honbo which means “burger” in Cantonese, terms itself as a “grassroots burger restaurant” which stays connected to that is local farmers, brewers and artisans.
Staying true to its brand identify, the signature Potato Milk Bun is baked “just 15 minutes away” and vegetables harvested free from Yuen Long.
For its lunch set, offerings included the Classic Burger (HKD108), Cheese Burger (HKD118), Vegan Burger (HKD108), Honbo Special (HK118) and Chicken Burger (HK108), which comes with a side and drink.
That is SGD19 (USD13.80) to SGD20.80 (USD15).
I ordered the Honbo Burger, a double patty beef with cheese, pickles, onion and house sauce. No frills.
True enough, this was just a simple, darn-good burger – soft as pillow bun, with juicy meaty patty sandwiched in between.
I had many Sweet Potato Fries in my life, but somehow these were just wickedly delicious.
Just a solid good burger. Can give some of the big boys a run of their money.
