Black angus burger

Black Angus burger

Wilbur's QR

Wilbur’s Black Angus burger is a edible hamburger. The hamburger leads in with an admirably appetizing presentation, an exposition that serves as a means to provide hope for what this burger should bring into realization – an outstanding burger experience to content, case that is undelivered by the quiddity of the burger which carries forth an unbalanced burger taste balance and an incommodious burger buildature.

The hamburger is afflicted by a single omnipresence that envelops the burger’s taste balance, one that subtly haunts each bite with a delicate off-ness that is not really off, just inappropriately selected – the mysterious overpowering white cheese that takes an iron reign over its burgdom. At the cheese’s right hand are the vegetables, the plentiful buttered lettuce and powerful tomato, serve and overtake what the cheese is unable to govern – similar to an overbearingly proud vegetarian, these ingredients make their stance well known, forcing a salad-esque feeling onto the burger, repressing other components into submission.

The moist beef patty, a destitute of taste, is in shortage of both a hint of seasoning and a willful angus beef taste; instead what the flimsy underpowered patty entrusts are chewy chunks that momentarily cause wreaks of confusions as to what these motes may be. The bun doesn’t show much flair either, with a vacant taste and infirm hold, it won’t take much for it to rend. Between the beef and the bun, and the veggies and the cheese, and a discernible bacon pulling its weight caught in-between; this burger exists with a taste imbalance that manifests a bleak burger satisfaction. The fries were alright.

As mentioned, the hamburger proceeds with an attractive demeanor – one to get excited about one that looks enticing one that begins to crumble instants after holding the burger and calculating the taste proportions, percentaged ingredients that don’t particularly buttress this hamburger.

For the price of 148.00 HKD this is a pretty unexceptional burger, nothing too special unless one is looking for a salad between two buns at which point one can have a great time with this hamburger. Some of the ingredients aren’t bad, simply not fit; and when one is engulfed in a burger – the beef, and the bun, should take reign.

Café Causette


Classic burger

Cafe Causette ReviewCafé Causette’s classic burger is an edible hamburger. Found in Hong Kong’s Central district, inside a lavish hotel and surrounded by a luxuriant environment – this humble looking burger, with a familiarly simple burger visage and no apparent extravagantly gourmeish touches makes for an unexpectedly interesting entrance; one that falls short the moment you enter the realm of its burger taste balance and hamburger construct.

Within the first uplift of the burger there is a noticeable density to the burger feel, a restraining press that is slightly felt on the outer bun regions that gets stronger towards the hamburger’s beef core; a brawny patty with a thickset quality, a set of awkwardly cut vegetables, and a bun that feels too chompy – build a hamburger with tough burger construction that is accompanied by an equally resilient hamburger texture that level down the burger taste balance, resulting in a heavy burger experience that is felt by both one’s burger hold and each ensuing bite.

The burger taste balance was undermined, lessened by a set of ingredients that didn’t fully commit to their roles and one overtly dedicated entity – the blue cheese. As one savors the beef patty there isn’t an adjacent strong beef taste, and along with its awkward texture, it introduces an indecorous seasoning that is deluged by an overwhelming punchy saltiness instigated by the ungainly cheese. The tomato and the lettuce do bring forth a frangible feeling that unfortunately doesn’t elevate the burger taste balance by much – if anything, as you look at the environment and consider the price, these components become prosaic companions. The bacon, entering with an appropriately firm stance, can’t hold itself against the power of the cheese – and with each jab of the burger, as it struggles to escape the salty clutches, it’s only reduced to a slight peep. The fries are alright.

Priced at 228.00 HKD, plus 12.00 HKD for additional items such as cheese and bacon, and considering where this burger originates from – this is a pretty unexciting hamburger that is not worth the attention. With a simple burger mien, comparable to many of the plebeian burgers in this city and the world, this hamburger barely manages to put up a fight, much less keep up – at least it’s housed in a great location that many would be envious of.
