Butchers Club Burgers, Landale Street, Wan Chai


Dry aged Black Angus beef burgers? Yes please. That was basically the bait to me for Butchers Club Burgers (G/F, Rialto Building, 2 Landale Street, Wan Chai, tel : +852 2528 2083) which I bit. Pun intended. This place seem to be part of a trending better burgers phenomenon in Hong Kong. Their meat is minced in house and there is only one burger to order (really? nawww...it ain't so). Open 7 days a week. Butchers Club does a few things apparently. A New York styled deli at Aberdeen, a steak frites joint at the same location and even an online store selling meat.


The ordering is fairly straightforward here. The shop is pretty small. One queues to make the order, pays and gets a chit. You can get a seat if you're part of the early bird queue, or you can stand/squeeze in any corner, even on the outside for your food. The ready order is called out and you simply acknowledge and someone will deliver the order to where you are. That's all to it.


On the left, the burger with a spicy mayo, pickles, tomato, cheese and bacon. Eastside stands Return of the Mac which can be gotten off their "secret" menu. Two all beef special sauce lettuce cheese pickles onions in a sesame seed bun their style. That secret menu can be found on their website or extracted from a QR scan at the shop. These were pretty good burgers there. Salty, greasy with sufficient beefy juicy goodness and for the latter, slightly hefty. The texture of the grind was good in my opinion as it was course and that creates texture. Duck fat fries were pretty decent too, but I do generally like my fries a little soft.
