Expert review of Wow! Burger

How to serve good cheap fast food that people really enjoy.

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.

Food and drink: 

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. 

Ambience: 

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." 

Service: 

They're busy, especially when classes at the nearby colleges empty out, but efficient and cheery.

Location: 

It's not wildly picturesque. Wan Chai Park is at the end of the street.

Price advice: 

Ask about combo or set meals which are usually a better deal. Otherwise a straightforward burger costs HK$24.

Other useful branches: 

There is another branch in Shau Kei Wan.
