Beer and Burgers International review

beer and burgers, Hong KongWe fancied a beer and a burger each so we decided to head inside. We can’t serve you beer I’m afraid said the good lady who greeted us. But do feel free to pop along to 7-11 and get your own.

It turned out that it was a license glitch and she was expecting all to be rectified within a matter of days. A shame, I was rather looking forward to an Egyptian Sakara Gold to go with a Lebanese burger ($48) My companion also had to forsake his Estrella which he would have paired with a Spanish burger ($48).

The trip down to the convenience store for a couple of cans didn’t have much appeal. Instead we made do with soft drinks, I an orange juice and he a cola. To go with the drinks and burgers we also ordered some buffalo chicken wings ($48) and some potato wedges ($18).

The wedges and wings arrived first by a very narrow margin. The wings are actually boneless and cut into bite sized pieces. The are served in a wonderfully tangy and spicy sauce. Along side them are celery strips and a blue cheese dip.

beer and burgers, Hong KongThe two burgers arrived almost at the at the same time. They are delivered with their hats off so you can admire the toppings. The Spanish had chunks of chorizo sausage, a slice of cheddar cheese and a huge daub of mayonnaise. A large part of the mayo defected to the plate after the first bite. My friend was unconcerned. Indeed he was of the opinion that there was too much of the stuff anyway.

The Lebanese burger was topped with halloumi cheese and za’atar. Za’atar is a middle eastern herb or blend of herbs which was sprinkled on the cheese. In place of the mayo a Lebanese burger has hummus. Not nearly as much and in my view altogether much better.

The burgers are a decent size though not as big as some other places. There are variations on the menu that include two patties and I suspect if you asked you could have an extra patty added into almost any burger on the menu.
