Since it’s been a long time since we were in a Western country I have to warn you that we spoiled ourselves with the tastes of home. After all , Hong Kong is like being in a fancier version of London…and with better noodles.
- The Diner – Skirt Burger & Memphis Burger
Lee and I sometimes joke that he should have a special section on this website dedicated to his burger reviews around the world. I can’t tell you how much this man loves his burgers. So when I tell you that Lee thought the Memphis burger may have been the best burger he’s ever eaten you know that its a good’un. I am not a connoisseur like him but the Skirt burger is the best meat and bun to cross my lips….and just look at that cheese!!!
The Diner’s website…no booking necessary and after 10pm on Wednesdays ladies get free Mojitos
- The Butchers Club – Double Happiness
Yes, it’s another burger. Lee checked many lists for the best burgers in Hong Kong and on ten lists he found a different ten recommendation every time so we had to try a few.
The But hers club is a famous Hong Kong restaurant with a minimal menu that includes 1. Burger and 2. Fries. That’s it….unless you know about the secret menu that is. The double happiness was huge and I fought to finish it. Lee spurred me on…so much so that I’m starting to think he’s a feeder.
it wasn’t my favourite since the cheese wasn’t great but still tasty. We’d just been spoilt at The Diner.
- Hong Kong French Toast. I waxed on about this heart attack on a plate in our last post. To summaries: Bread, peanut butter, condensed milk fried and served swimming in more butter. I think you gain calories just looking at it.
- Tea – Lee was reunited with his one true love…an English cuppa. Just filled with condensed milk instead for a sweet , teeth crumbling kick.
- Dumplings- we discovered this is more of a Northern Chinese thing but Hong Kong special BBQ pork buns were fantastic. They cost pennies and can be found in lots of cheap restaurants for about 10p
- Egg tarts – left over from the Portuguese conquest of Macau, these little delicious tarts were creamy, rich and perfectly custardy
plus some extra treats…. It’s safe to say our time in Hong Kong wasn’t spent hungry.
