The homemade burger is decent. There isn’t anything too special about this hamburger in terms of taste. However, you’ll notice that most of the ingredients in the burger feel fresh, and as the restaurant’s name suggests, once the burger lightly falls into your stomach it’ll make you feel some peace after the show is over. Unlike most burgers, your stomach won’t feel too brimming – and thus, if you’re in the area, it’s a decent burger to enjoy during lunch on those ‘lean’ days. The whole wheat bread is fluffy and light with a pleasant taste, the fresh vegetables crunch, and the fried egg, bacon, and beef patty seemed to have been cooked with ‘lean’ in mind; all these ingredients, together with a tiny amount of spillage from oil and juices, create a burger that will certainly give you a ‘healthy’ sensation – one that’ll allow you to go back to your office with a content stomach to carry on working.
As wholesome as this burger is, the taste is somewhat off-balanced. The cheese, which appears to be a slice of Kraft’s singles, and the bacon pass almost unnoticed – in the background without an indication of their presence. The beef, overwhelmed by certain herbaceousness, loses its strength from what I believe is an attempt to give a more ‘green’ presentation. Perhaps the best addition to this burger is the sunny side up egg with a runny yolk, once the top bun is in place the yolk bursts covering the inside with that delicious baby chicken juice. Chips with the burger are always a let down.
Peace square, in Tin Hau, is a quiet and relaxing restaurant with a homely feeling. Probably all the food, like the burger, has been prepared with a hearty purpose. At 78.00 HKD, the burger is quite affordable. Still, I wouldn’t recommend you to go out of your way to much for this burger, but if you’re in the area and want a light lunch might as well try it.Peace Square G/F., No. 146-146A Tung Lo Wan Road Tin Hau, Hong Kong
