BEST VEGETARIAN BURGER SPOTS AROUND HONG KONG!
We’re finally back, and that too with some burgers! Burgers are one of those snacks that no one can resist. The kind of snack that satisfies all cravings with its juicy meat patty and fresh toppings all packed between two toasted buns, making it a delectable and easy-to-eat meal. However, nowadays there’s been a huge demand for vegetarian burgers due to the growing trend of obtaining a sustainable diet.

Opened its first restaurant in Hong Kong back in 2017, this American burger chain serves not only your classic cheeseburgers but also Impossible burgers ($118 HKD). This is a completely vegan burger, put together with a patty, pickles, onion, lettuce, and vegan XO house sauce. Although at a relatively more expensive price range, the burger does live up to its taste.

2. KABO BURGER
A fairly new family-owned, Korean restaurant located at the heart of TST. We were pushed by our friends to try their Impossible Burger (HKD$62) and did not regret it one bit! Honestly, it's one of the best impossible burgers we’ve tried which tasted exactly like a regular cheeseburger, and in our opinion even better! The burger is topped with melted cheese and caramelized onions, all on a bed of fresh lettuce and tomatoes.
Location: G/F, Wardley Centre, 9-11 Prat Ave, Tsim Sha Tsui [Other Branch in Kwai Chung] Contact: 95214405

3. BURGER REPUBLIC
We've been going to this place since 2014 when it was called “Chips Republic” [Located in Elements] however in 2019 they shut their restaurant down. Fortunately for us, they opened up two sister branches “Burger republic” with the same exact menu!
Besides their PB banana chocolate milkshake and Truffle Cheese fries, the Veggie Galore burger ($69HKD) is what you should be looking out for. When we first tried it out, we knew it was love at first bite! Very different from your impossible burgers, as the patty is made from lentils and other grains, topped with caramelized onion, mushroom, and cheese! The burger itself was quite filling and juicy and definitely worth trying.
Location: Shop F24-26, 1/F, PopCorn, 9 Tong Yin Street, Tseung Kwan O [Another branch in Mong Kok] Contact: 25681199
Opening Hours: 11.30am - 9pm Price Range: $50- $100
4. SHAKE SHACK
Of Course, we had to put this one in the lot! Shake Shack, is an American fast-food restaurant chain based in New York City. They opened in Hong Kong a few years back and now have 6 stores across the city! If you're looking for a juicy portobello burger, the Shroom Burger (HKD$67) is a good grab. The patty is a crisp-fried portobello mushroom filled with melted cheddar cheese, topped with lettuce, tomato, and their Shake Shack sauce. The melty goodness of the cheesy burger almost made us cheddar tear.
Location: Shop 4018, 4/F, IFC, 1 Harbour View Street, Central [Other branches in Harbour City, Pacific Place, Elements Mall, Times Square, New Town Plaza] Contact: 25225611
Opening Hours: 11am - 10pm Price Range: $50- $100
5. PREMIUM BURGERS & SANDWICHES
Out of all the big restaurants, we came across a small, locally-owned business at the heart of Causeway Bay. As we were strolling through the area, this cute retro-style restaurant caught our eye, and so did their menu. The Portobello Mushroom Burger (HKD$78 Lunch set with fries) was a one-of-a-kind burger with its unique choice of ingredients including; freshly grilled portobello mushroom, sautéed asparagus, and sliced avocado! Never thought veggies could be the star in a burger, but we were so wrong.
Location: G/F, 12 Haven Street, Causeway Bay
Opening Hours: 12 pm - 10 pm Price Range: $100- $150
