First Bite

First Bite

This is their most generic burger and the only burger available on their everyday menu.  The patty is 100% beef, no breadcrumbs, no eggs, no pork mixed in with the patty, the300+ days dry aged Australian Angus beef is totally irresistible.   The patty only consist 30% fat with cheese, tomato, bacon, pickle and special sauce.  It is pan fried till caramelized and the middle is slightly pink, so the meat is crispy on the edge and juicy and moist on the inside. I personally loved the fresh soft bun, Scotch Bap from Bread Elements. Taste fantastic with the melted cheese!

Duck Fat Fries – $20

The Duck Fat Fries looked and sounded amazing, but it wasn’t as amazing as I expected. They were delicious but lacked seasoning, and wasn’t crispy enough. The inside was dry and bland. The portion was small but just enough if you have had one of their bif burgers.  Ketchup and mustard is available on every table.

Double Pattie

Double Patties

Return of the Mac really excited me even by looking at it. Two dry-aged beef patties, special sauce, shredded lettuce, cheese, pickles and chopped white onion, just like McDonalds, Big Mac, but obviously better. The size is super big, I had problems trying to stuff it into my mouth.  After one bite, I was in love, and i mean deeply madly in love. The patties were super juicy, they were dripping all over, and making the buns super soggy, so soggy the bottom bun was falling off.  The burger was super cheesy with double cheese, the burger was so delicious, I promised myself to come again within these two weeks.  I cannot wait til my next visit. This is a must try, and yes, i do agree, this is the best burger I have ever tasted!

Ice-Cream Float – $40

Coke Float

Ice-Cream Float

This was the only ‘special’ drink they have, or it is soft drinks or alcohol.  Taste good? taste like coke with a scoop of ice-cream, nothing special and costed more than the fries.

The shop is located in Wanchai, more nearer to admiralty though.  Around 30 seats only, best to come before 7pm or expected a long wait. Loud heavy metal music playing on the background, people talking away making even more noise.  Busy atmosphere, with open kitchen where you can watch your burgers being prepared while you wait for the best burger to come.  Burgers are served on a chopping board, prepared to have messy hands when the burger juices drips down.
