Burger Fix: If you’re the type of person who just can’t resist a good burger then Beef & Liberty should sate those cravings. Holding court in the Star Street precinct, this American restaurant also serves an edited list of craft beers and tasty appetizers.
Look & Feel: Beef & Liberty has a casual and laid-back vibe, evident in the huge wall murals, metal chairs and comfy booths. If it gets too crowded for you downstairs, head up to the rooftop where you can enjoy some fresh air while chatting with friends over drinks.
On the Menu: Beef & Liberty is a serious contender for the top spot on our list of best burgers in Hong Kong. The patties are made with hormone-free grass-fed beef from Tasmania, which might be responsible for the tender and juicy result. In case you’re not craving beef, there are also several other burger varieties to choose from, such as pulled pork, lamb or chicken. While the burgers steal the show, we’d also recommend the crispy chicken wings ($83) or sticky rib fingers ($88) for starters. Pair your burger with their sweet potato fries ($36) or save yourself for a warm cookie skillet for dessert ($68).
Service: The service here is relatively reliable, though it’s not going to blow your mind. Even when there’s a line, turnover is quick and wait time isn’t too bad.
Jeng: We’re big fans of the burgers at Beef & Liberty. Even if you just order the classic burger ($92), it’ll be enough to fill you up! Better yet, the burgers are pretty affordable – the classic burger only costs $92. We also appreciate that the restaurant introduces new burger recipes every now and then to keep things interesting.
Not So Jeng: For some reason, the restaurant can’t seem to make tiny burgers taste anywhere near as good as the full-grown version. Each of the sliders in our combo ($138) — which comes with a choice of three types — is dry and the buns taste nearly stale. The seating gets pretty cramped, especially on weekends when the restaurants is packed with diners.
Great For: A quick meal or dinner with friends, casual date, big group gathering, eating contests.
FYI: Beef & Liberty opened a branch in Stanley for Southside burger fanatics.
