Expert review of Wow! Burger
McDonald's is unbelievably popular in Hong Kong - it's even seen as a good place for a first date(!). While Wow! Burger has yet to mount a serious challenge to the Golden Arches' world domination, it's winning the taste war hands down.
Much of the Wow! factor is due to their ham/cheese/pork/fish/garden/etc burgers being freshly cooked only once you've ordered. They also do pizza (not quite so good) and a range of snacks.
Well, it's a takeaway joint, so ambience might be an extravagant term. But bravo for the entrepreneurial spirit: "We decided that what the world needs is a great burger again."
They're busy, especially when classes at the nearby colleges empty out, but efficient and cheery.
It's not wildly picturesque. Wan Chai Park is at the end of the street.
Ask about combo or set meals which are usually a better deal. Otherwise a straightforward burger costs HK$24.
There is another branch in Shau Kei Wan.
