Top Blade Steak Lab’s ultimate burger is an exquisite hamburger. The burger substantiates itself as a capable hamburger experience – showing an astute range of ingredients and intricate planning to result in a well balanced burger taste balance and a polite burger construction. Off the beaten path, somewhere in Mong Kok East – a place not known for many burgers, this hamburger sure deserves a sampling.
The ultimate burger arrives in its upmost manner, up and tall, and with a blade pierced through its core – a testament to it’s size. Placing the knife aside, a grasp of the burger’s contour fills one with an aptitude of burger-love it has been given, a comfortably conformed bun-to-patty ratio. What follows, a studious burger taste balance of laborious studies, is a testament to the ‘lab.’ The burger feels and tastes soft, each segment, from patty to bun, is delightfully tender with a savoreous sweetness. The bun, glistening in shine, is pliable and with a bready hint of palatableness; though with time, all too delicate and too soft – a detriment to the burger’s build.
The beef patty shares the ethos of the lab, it is clean and well put together, and with only a handful of diced shallots to assist the taste. It’s seasoned with a hint of pepper and salt, all with the hypothesis to bring out the beef cuts in the hamburger. The parts feel soft and tender, slivering with every bite. Nothing in the hamburger’s burger taste balance is overbearing – the caramelized onions, sautéed in red wine, add a frivolous acidity onto the burger; and the cheese, gooey around the patty, is soft and emanatingly mild, enough to provide a subtle cheesiness to the whole endeavor.
Then the nacho bits came to play… in a hamburger so soft there should be some sort of a crunch – was the thought. Something worthy of a mark in changing the texture of this ultimate burger. The nacho bits did just that… simply in a weird an awkward manner. The nacho-flavor, their texture and sogginess after moments – all had no place in this burger, it was an experiment with an maladroit result.
For HKD160.00 (HKD80.00 during lunch time) this is a burger to try. The fries, which come in unlimited quantities and with a hint of truffle, are a welcomed addition. The ultimate burger, as stated in the menu, has received maximum love. Carefully planned, the hamburger is a great experience for the most – the nachos was a risk worth not taking.Top Blade Steak Lab No. 4A Soares Avenue Mong Kok +852 3956 2011
