Award-winning Si Sun Fast Food is an exceptionally popular hole-in-the-wall Hong Kong-style eatery that specialises in greasy beef patty burgers.
Long queues formed outside the tiny local restaurant on a daily basis is a testimony to their tasty burgers. Do be mentally prepared to wait at least 15 to 20 minutes before getting a table. Alternatively, you could opt for takeouts.
The palm-size burgers served at Si Sun Fast Food are simple but delicious. The handcrafted beef and pork patties – sandwiched between fluffy sesame buns sourced from reputable bakery Garden – are smeared with an addictive homemade salad dressing.
Believe it or not, these divine burgers are affordably priced between HK$17 to HK$23.
Si Sun Fast Food has been around since 1963 and has been the go-to place amongst local Hong Kongers for satisfying junk food. Yes, the burgers here might be a tad too greasy, but who cares!
The recipe to the restaurant’s success lies in its lip-smacking sauce which has been made from scratch with over 10 ingredients such as pickles and tomatoes.
Other than the bestselling beef and pork burgers, Si Sun Fast Food also sells a variety of other deep-fried snacks such as French Fries (HK$7), Chicken Wings (HK$8) and Sausage (HK$5).
We can’t think of anywhere else that would sell a hearty burger at such an economical price. But truth be told, it is the burgers that have lured foodies to return again and again; the wallet-friendly price is merely a bonus.
