Burger Republic — Tseung Kwan O
Gourmet burgers in Hong Kong at great prices, anyone? Look no further than Burger Republic at the PopCorn mall in TKO.

Their beef burgers feature 100% premium angus beef patties, and the Smokey BBQ (HK$68) is particularly outstanding. Their Chicken Mexicana (HK$74) is a great sandwich, juicy and moist, for those looking for a chicken burger with a twist. Do add their Chilli Cheese Chips (HK$48) if you have the capacity to try more, or just get the sauce for HK$12.
