Gourmet burgers in Hong Kong at great prices, anyone? Look no further than Burger Republic at the PopCorn mall in TKO. It might be a small location (explaining the friendlier prices for the premium ingredients), but do not miss out on their range of burgers, loaded fries, and milkshakes. Their beef burgers feature 100% premium angus beef patties, and the Smokey BBQ (HK$79) is particularly outstanding. Their Chicken Mexicana (HK$85) is a great sandwich, juicy and moist, for those looking for a chicken burger with a twist. Do add their Chilli Cheese Chips (HK$52) if you have the capacity to try more, or just get the sauce for HK$15. And drink it all down with one of their thick milkshakes; the Bailey’s VC is one of our favourites (HK$60).

Smash’d — Kennedy Town

Smash’d is one of the few burger restaurants in Hong Kong where you can find smashed hamburgers. Generally agreed to be invented in Colorado, USA, this is where the chef presses a loosely packed beef patty into the pan or grill surface, caramelizing as much of the outer surface area as much as possible while the short cooking time keeps the inside of the patty moist. The result is a ratio of just-charred outsides with a juicy middle that you simply can’t find in a conventional beef patty; try the Classic Smash’d Cheese Burger (HK$78) to get in on the hype. This burger spot in Kennedy Town also offers vegetarian and sustainable seafood options, such as the Captain’s Catch Burger with a crab meat patty (HK$78).
