The Wagyu burger, with its magnificent appearance and captivating taste, is an exquisite hamburger. From the moment this burger is placed at your sight you’ll feel the excitement that Jack felt as he gazed upon and drew Rose; but with a happier ending, this burger encounter is one that you should certainly look forward too.
The burger, which looks and feels well proportioned, has been constructed with a set of delicious ingredients. Individually, these ingredients manage to leave their own little mark; but as a whole, as they rumble and tumble inside your lips, they succeed in achieving an exquisitely savory burger taste balance. The Wagyu patty, with its appropriately corresponding girth and vigorous juicy beef flavor, feels just right; lying upon a bed of fresh firm vegetables and covered by a slightly gooey blanket of gently melted mellow delectable Swiss cheese, this patty seems well taken care of. The vibrant bacon, which is perfectly chewy and crispy, provides just the right amount of saltines to complement the beef, and the overall burger balance. All these ingredients, carefully stacked in between the marvelously soft and springy bun, a bun that is crumpled ever so flawlessly, that’ll blissfully absorb any juices without tearing itself apart, make up one of the best burgers I’ve had in Hong Kong – it is simply, exquisite.
This burger could very well attain the heights of a majestic burger, and there isn’t much to say in terms of the bad… but for a burger to be majestic, care has to be given to all aspects of the burger and the experience. Without a chance of disappointing the burgnivore – as the flavors caress your tongue the adventure should be mesmerizing; when you request a temperature medium expecting a pink center and instead receive a temperature well done with a gray-brown center, a disruption will occur. On top of that, a few meagre bits of rubbery meat were encountered in the Wagyu patty, while unimportant, and I hope a one-time incidence, you’ll still stop for a second before continuing in on this grand endeavor. The steak fries are good, but could use a little extra salt.
At 155.00 HKD dollars this burger is well worth the price, and 8.00 HKD for additional toppings won’t break your wallet. High Street Grill, a comfortable restaurant in Sai Ying Pun, is a nice place to enjoy a burger that feels even better when you realize how homely the neighborhood appears.High Street Grill Shop 4&5, G/F, Hang Sing Mansion, 48-78 High Street, Wester District, Hong Kong +852 2559 2638
