There are good burgers in Hong Kong. These are from Electric Ave in Sai Ying Pun.


There are plenty of gourmet burgers in Hong Kong and you can find them in sit-down restaurants but they tend to be pricey. Sure, you could get your burger fix from these up class restaurants with burgers topped with raclette cheese at Beef & Liberty, the Wu Tang-Style burger from the Butchers Club or the Foie Gras Burger from Burgeroom. But if it's the classic bun and patty you're after, these humble burger restaurants are sticking to the basics without all the fancy trimmings.

Electric Ave (Sai Ying Pun)

The kitchen at Electric Ave serves up one of the thickest and juiciest beef patties in Hong Kong. If you're the beef and patty kind then you best order the classic beef burger. Check out their other menu offerings such as their highly recommended Chicken Carbonara Burger.

Pro tip: Get a side of bone marrow or rosemary fries to go with your burger.
