Stick To Your Buns

You’ve been oh so good with your body beautiful regime but concoctions of mung beans, wheat grass and tofu have not exactly been tantalizing your taste buds…
It’s time to meat and greet this summer with Hong Kong’s best burgers.  Let loose, warm up those buns and grab yourself a nice juicy hunk… of meat!

East Meats West
InterContinental Hong Kong (18 Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, 2721 1211)
Starting on August 1st, the Lobby Lounge will host a special menu featuring “Burgers from Around the World” showcasing nine international interpretations of the ever-popular burger. From the Japanese Beef and O-Toro Burger to the Mexican Cajun Spiced Chicken Burger to the Indian Minced Lamb Burger with Onion Chili Yoghurt, you can take your love affair with Le Burger global.

Meating Spot
Harlan’s (Shop 2075, IFC Mall, Central, 2805 0566)
Spice up those business lunch meetings with one of Harlan’s mouthwatering burgers.  Served with a side of large fresh cut fries and truffle mayonnaise, you’ll have to be careful not to salivate while sealing the deal.   Hot tip: now you can snack on mini-versions of Harlan’s famous burger, along with cocktails and harbour views at G Bar.

On the Bun
Lemon Exchange (G/F, 5A Cochrane Street, Central, 6303 8786)
Exchange your seat at Drop’s VIP booth for a miniature plastic stool outside – trust us, it’s worth it.  Burgers here are made with tender loving care, and are the perfect pick-me-up after shaking those buns ‘til the early hours of the morning.  They’re so good that after trying one once, that piece of meat will be all you can think about on the dance floor.

Bun Worshipper
South Bay Beach Club (South Bay Road, Repulse Bay, 2812 6015)
Lounging in the sun and looking picture perfect whilst getting some serious people watching done can really take it out of you.  Recharge those batteries with a nice hearty burger at South Bay.  Although, it’s not exactly bikini friendly, we recommend the delectable cheeseburger, served with sautéed mushroom and onions.

Grillin’ and Chillin’
McSorley’s Ale House (55 Elgin Street, SoHo, 2522 2646)
Pull up a stool at this casual Soho institution, which serves up classic pub-style burgers, grilled to perfection. For the ultimate indulgence, order the Chili Cheese Burger with all the fixins’.  With a beer in hand, your favorite game on the tube, and a giant burger packed away in your tummy, this house may start to feel like home!

I Like Big Buns
Shake ‘em Buns (Shop K, 2D Star Street, Wanchai, 2866 2060)
If you like ‘em round and big, look no further than Star Street to find that juicy double.  This warm, inviting burger and shake shack is not your average street-side joint.  Burgers, dogs and sides like chili cheese fries are made with high quality ingredients, such as grade A cheddar cheese and homemade coleslaw, and have names that take decadence to a new level.  Their classic burger is called “Missionary” while their hot dogs and sausages are served “Doggy Style,” and a grilled chicken sandwich is dubbed “Hot Chick.”  Wash it all down with milkshakes like “Creamy Choco Love,” a blend of chocolate, peanut butter and vanilla ice-cream.

If you can’t wait till lunch, why not eat your juicy hunk for breakfast?
