Si Sun Fast Food - Hong Kong

In Sydney, you have things like Eatability. In HK, you have 'Open Rice'. One of the cafes which piqued my hubby's interest from the Open Rice forums was honky style beef burgers from Si Sun Fast Food in Hung Hom. It was talked up as one of the first fast food burgers in HK - adapted obviously to HK tastes... with super juicy beef patty and and fried egg. So enroute to visiting my relatives for dinner, we stopped by for a snack.

There was a surprising number of patrons there - both dine in and takeaway - all tucked in this little fast food joint. Not everyone was eating the burger, but there were a few takers. As planned, we ordered their beef, egg and cheese burger and after looking around, I also decided that a fried chicken drumstick with chips was the way to go. If you had your eyes closed and you took a bite of this burger, you'd know straight away that it's an asian burger. Something about the way the patty is marinated or the onions that are encased in the beef that makes it very very honky. The egg is a good addition to the beef, cheese and soft bun package. Not a bad burger. Just not the usual burger we're used to. Likewise, one bite of the chicken and I could tell my hubby straight away - it's his type of chicken drumstick. Super crispy skin, layer of juicy fatness which just makes the meat melt in your mouth. Good piece of chicken I think. Chips were just meh though.

So don't expect service. Don't even expect the food to be super fast. But if you're looking for a true honky experience, this is probably a good place to start.
