Best Burger

  1. Honbo (Eaters' Choice)

    Honbo's motto is 'Real Good Burger', and that's exactly what founder Michael Chan has been feeding his native Hong Kong since opening in March 2017. With Double Gold American beef imported from Wisconsin topped with Hong Kong local ingredients, it's easy to see why Honbo has become a beloved local favourite in such a short time.

    - Honbo, (various locations), Wan Chai, Sun St, New Sun House, G/F, +852 2567 8970

  2. The Globe

    'Hong Kong's Original Gastro Pub' is a gathering place for anglophiles, football-heads and beer lovers, with a meaty, juicy burger worthy of its clientele. And don't sleep on their extra-pulpy bloody mary, an excellent way to start a Saturday, Sunday or — we're not judging — any other day of the week.

    - The Globe, Garley Building, 45-53A Graham St, Central, Hong Kong, +852 2543 1941

  3. The Diplomat

    While mixologist and beverage director John Nugent's cocktails are the main attraction for this quasi-speakeasy at the bottom of Central's H-Code, the perfectly proportioned and scrumptious Diplomat Burger — a quarter pounder with cheddar and a sesame seed bun — has gained a cult following in its own right. Try it and you'll understand why.

    - The Diplomat, Shop 1, LG/F, H Code, 45 Pottinger St, Central, Hong Kong, +852 3619 0302

  4. Five Guys

    Put your phone down — a Five Guys burger is not for the neat. With a list of toppings that you can customise to your heart's content, expect extra napkins, messy fingers and a smile on your face.

    - Five Guys, (various locations), Manning House, 48 Queen's Road Central, Central, Hong Kong, +852 3618 9122

  5. Smoke & Barrel

    There's always a place for old-school American BBQ, and fortunately for all of us, that place is right here in Hong Kong. From Kinship's Arron Rhodes and Chris Grare, a menu full of hearty, saucy grub is joined by a selection of burgers — all of which you'll need both hands to muster.

    - Smoke & Barrel, 1/F-2/F, Wyndham Mansion, 32 Wyndham St, Central, Hong Kong, +852 2866 2120

  6. Burger Deli

    Lawrence and Yoyo are the people behind Burger Deli, a hidden gem in Sai Kung that's more than worth the trip. Juicy handheld burgers are made to order alongside a menu of American-style treats, including jumbo hot dogs and sodas. Just give yourself a moment to let it all settle before you hit the hiking trail or the sea.

    - Burger Deli, G/F, Shop 2 Ko Shing House, 9 King Man St, Sai Kung, Hong Kong, +852 3689 9052
