The hunt for the perfect burger started a few years ago when burger joints started popping up all over Hong Kong. With different specialities, themes and ingredients, Hong Kong Foodies have captured and reviewed them all. One of the newest additions is Electric Ave. With innovative ideas, friendly staff and chill atmosphere, the hidden gem is located in the up and coming Sai Ying Pun. If you want a homemade wholesome burger, this is the place to go!
Merely a month ago, Andy aka “Chi Sin Burger” established Electric Ave. The name derives from the first street in England to have a lamp post, Electric Avenue in Brixton. Inspiration for the ever-changing menu comes from the changes in Brixton with a growing diverse community!
As Hong Kong slowly develops health consciousness, healthier options and ingredients are becoming more readily available for consumers. Eliminating hormones, antibiotics chemicals, preservatives and processed everything, Electric Ave focuses on the pure nutrition of the best possible options for each dish.
Their main goal is to produce all goods in house, while they are perfecting different aspects enjoy their homemade ketchup, sauces and more! Andy prepares during the day and serves throughout the evening. A decision between bone marrow infused hand cut chips or skinny rosemary fries is a big deal here. With 5 hours of prep, the fries are accompanied by house made ketchup. The ketchup is made with 12 ingredients and compliments the chips perfectly.
Each burger is paired with buns from Gregoire Michaud of Bread Elements. Currently on the menu is a Classic Aussie Beef burger with the option of adding crumbly Cheddar cheese or Stilton. The homemade beef patty is the star of the show served with onions, lettuce and cucumber. The other burger is the Creamy Hache Chicken Burger. Enjoy “Happy Hour Burgers” from 5-7pm with 10% off the restaurant made gourmet burgers.
Pair these burgers with their special milkshakes! “War Of The Roses” is a mix of vanilla ice cream, homemade rose petal jam and rosemary. the sweet jams sits at the bottom of the cup. The Springbok Milkshake has a kick from the Amarula, chocolate chips and mint chocolate ice cream. Currently BYOB, you can bring in Winston’s Coffee (another Sai Ying Pun favorite)!A must have is the Japanese chocolate infused chilli con carne sloppy joe! Made with Guinness, dark chocolate and marmite. The restaurant is currently improving and changing the menu with recipes made by Andy.
