It takes quite something to topple Butcher Club’s ‘Wu-Tang’ offering but the ‘Classic’ burger here does just that, with room to spare! The “90+” ingredients combine to create a juicy, delicately sweet double patty, with tasty cheddar cheese - stilton on offer too - and perfectly crisp but soft buns adding ever more flavour. I was blown away. And stuffed. At lunchtime, that particular delight as well as chips and a drink will only set you back $140 including service. A steal for the quality. My only slight reservation is that the chips had a bit too much rosemary on (a good choice for strong-flavoured but at risk of overpowering weaker flavours) but the lovely homemade ketchup more than made up for this. And all the other reviewers seem to have loved the herb’s presence, so maybe it’s just me. Service is very friendly and I had an illuminating chat with the owner afterwards about the ingredients and process...though it was mainly just me raving about the burger I had just had. To top everything off, they were blasting out hip-hop classics and bangers (Q-Tip, Dilated Peoples, Redman to name but a few). So, pretty much the perfect burger place and I absolutely cannot wait to try their other options!

Smashed the Classic, rosemary fries and a Tafel. I’ll definitely be back for seconds. And thirds. Epic little spot tucked away down an alleyway just off first. The staff are absolute crackers too well done boys.

I have enjoyed many good burgers around HK...a little too frequently...but this place is the best. Been here a few times and it never fails.

This is a small enterprise and it's clear that a lot of care and effort goes into every detail of every burger. The menu is kept small but it has range; the toppings and condiments are imaginative and crafted, yet the flavour is balanced and not pretentious. The result is just really delicious food which comes in good portions and packed with flavour.

Best chips and fries in HK, too!

After a lot of dilemma I have decided to write this review. I have been a few times and this is an ok burger. The buns are good and I like the choices of cheese. For an excellent burger to be at that price point, common practice outside of HK is, the place asks what temperature you would like the burger cooked and it is grilled. Unfortunately, neither of these are true. Electic Ave burger actually seems watery- not juicy, but just plain watery, maybe there are just too many things that go into the burger that are not exactly meat, I am not sure. Also, it has sort of a bitter taste, again maybe just too much fillers in it. The decor is cool. I guess the one thing that turned me off is in regards to service. We came in a few months ago (not sure exactly) for a promotion of the Big Mac Burger with a group. We asked for the promotion and the owner was not too happy about it. We had been in once before and he must have remembered us and said that the promotion was actually meant to be for new customers only, but he would do us a favor. He continued to talk about how business was slow. By paying for something publically promoted, I do not see how that is a favor. So we ate the burgers feeling guilty- we just wanted that special and that was the price promoted, no need for him to guilt trip us. So overall- good buns, interesting toppings, watery (not juicy) fried burgers, and average service.

Agh you again. So after talking to you on FB you then decide to review here, openrice and talk to all of your friends about this (your words, not mine) and so here is my response. You have made your point, you are not one of the believers, that's ok, now move along there is nothing more to see. Quite honestly i am too tired and I have too many health problems to worry about people like you. Scurrying around the internet trying to damage, damage, damage. Oh and by the way, what you are doing makes you very small. You probably think you are powerful through anonymity huh. Get a life.

Went to this place by chance as it was near my hotel. Luckly me. After a few weeks travelling in China and the East, needed 'western ' food for a change. Excellent burger and real potato chips well cooked with a nice blond beer. Very satisfied customer!!
