The Butchers Club


The_Butchers_Club_BurgerThe Butchers Club located in Central Hong Kong is a well-known place for burgers and duck fat fries. Originally first opened in Wan Chai, this place is famous for its signature burger along with the secret menu that according to rumors changes on a regular basis. With two convenient locations on Hong Kong Island and one in Kowloon, this place has an authentic bar and wooden table with high stools seating, an open kitchen and menu items visible from every angle from their display board.

Th_Butchers_Club_Full_Burger“The Burger” is the famous and simplest burger in this joint. Priced at 100 HKD, it arrived served in a branded wooden block nicely sitting on a paper liner. If you want the duck fat fries you need to order them separately, I decided to go for the burger only.

Evidently I requested my meat to be well done and although it wasn’t as cooked as I normally like it to be the meat was amazingly tender and juicy. Considering that it’s not wagyu I was quite impressed. The freshly baked bun was just soft enough and a great accompaniment to the meat and the mixture of the ingredients; bacon, cheese, tomato, pickle and the secret sauce. It also wasn’t messy at all to eat.

The_Butchers_Club_Burger_Close_UpI was quite impressed with this burger. The meat and marriage with the simple ingredients made it one of the best burgers that I’ve ever had yet. It is great value for your money and I will most definitely come back here again to enjoy this simple yet delicious burger. I give it my 5/5 rating!
