Shake'em Buns is a well thought out, cute little 'shack'. There are three booths and a couple of tall tables. The burgers each have witty names and there is enough choice between beef, chicken, fish and veggies for all tastes. The burgers are made to order. The bun is soft, the chicken is juicy, not fatty at all. My only... More

Going here seems be be a tradition for my son and I after his orthodontist appointments. Usually arrive as they are opening at 1130. Very friendly and make very good food. Son usually gets a burger and shake combo. Burgers usually come medium well but are very juicy and not greasy. Fries come very hot and crispy! Think we have... More

Had the best veggie burger here. Good ambiance, was less crowded, good location. Very small place, clean and tidy as well. Burger was cooked after the order, it was fresh and tasty.

Centrally located and good place for a quick bite. Burgers are very excellent and the Gang Bang is the way to go

Wandered past at 7pm on a Wednesday night whilst I was getting desperate for dinner as I hadn't eaten since 12pm that day and only had two slices of bread to keep me going. It's Americana cute, cheeky jokes here and there on signs around the front and inside, so it seemed decent enough. I checked TripAdvisor reviews before considering... More

This inconspicuous little burger joint with only a few tables might not look inviting for passers by. But don't make the mistake of not going in, or you might miss out on a great burger experience. So juicy and tasty! Only negative thing was they didn't have shakes, I didn't quite understand if they were out or if they'd never... More

We were tired. Teenage kids were having a meltdown! It was past 10 PM. This place hit the spot. Tiny. Delicious burgers. The buns heated on a bittered pan! Beer was cold. Meltdowns ended and we went back to the hotel happy and satisfied

自問稱不上一個標準burger迷,不過偶爾都會癮起。這晚就拉隊來到城中其中一間主打美國南部風格漢堡的老字號burger專門店Shake'em Buns。 Shake'em Buns就在威靈頓街與石板街交界,入口就在7-11旁。 漢堡店氣氛輕鬆自在,無拘無束。座位除了數張高枱外,也設有3張卡位。 這裡的menu只有2版紙,以burger為主,共有8款。另外亦有薯條、炸雞翼、炸洋蔥圈等小食。 不難從店名知道這裡的主打強項除了buns外,就是shakes。所以我們也在吃包前先點些飲品和數款小食。 這裡的Chocolate & peanut butter milkshake ($52) 朱古力與花生的香都相當濃郁,奶昔的質感滑溜濃厚,甜度亦比我預期為低。雖然這杯奶昔實在超邪惡,但卻同時超美味!結果忍不住吸了一口又一口。。。 另外朋友點的Blueberry milkshake ($52) 與Strawberry & pineapple smoothie ($52)可算是稍為較輕盈的選擇吧~ 小食大家選了炸雞翼與2款薯條。Death wing ($88/6件),雞翼是以美國南部的傳統炸法,炸得特別香脆,而肉質仍嫩滑juicy。雞翼本身醃得剛好入味,濃淡恰好。不過如果更有美國南部的風味,就可以點些酸辣辣椒醬與乳酪醬。 在拿不定主意下我們Chili cheese fries ($68)與 Poutine ($68)都各點了一客。如果喜歡味道濃郁的朋友相信會喜歡香濃惹味的Chili cheese fries。 而poutine就相對味道較清。Shake’em Buns的版本與在加拿大吃到的味道有點不一樣。這裡將美式gravy撈芝士再淋在薯條上,而這裡用的芝士是mozzarella cheese,芝味稍淡亦不太鹹,更有拉絲效果,吸引。 Shake’em Buns的menu上共有9款burger,每款的名字都很有趣。當中有經典的牛漢堡,但亦有雞、魚甚至素菜漢堡包可選。 我們點了其中數款burger,然後請廚房哥哥幫我們切開方便大家share。這裡的beef patty真的做得相當香和juicy,牛肉香也特別濃郁。相信除了師傅控制火候了得外,還有是因為這裡的牛肉肉餅是用21 day dry-aged Galician & Angus beef這2款牛肉混合。西班牙Galician牛尤其出名肉味香濃。 最基本的芝士漢堡The Other Women ($88),牛肉餅肉香濃郁又多汁,配著微溶的美國芝士和香甜惹味醬汁,夾在外微脆而內裡質感鬆軟的漢堡包內已經很好吃。 另有朋友點了不同款的牛漢堡,包括加了蘑菇的Peppa’s magic mushroom ($108),以及加了辣肉醬和蘋果洋蔥粒的Trailer trash ($108),2款賣相都相當澎湃。雖然我沒有吃,但朋友們吃完都大讚。 除了牛漢堡,大家也選了一款烤雞漢堡The Other Hot Chick...

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
