Hong Burger

2020-07-30
Hong Kong is a metropolis with rich cultural vibrancy. A lot of Western food can be found in Hong Kong, and hamburger is one of them. However, since the food ingredients found in Hong Kong and the taste of Hong Kong people differ from those of the West, we have developed various local delicacies of Hong Kong.

71-year-old CHUNG Kei-ching is the owner of a fast food eatery. During 1960’s, his father CHUNG Kwun-kau was taught by his friend and created the Hong Kong style-burger, which was named the “Hong Kong-style Bun” and sold near the Hung Hom Ferry Pier. The Bun was sold in Hong Kong even before the famous American burger chain entering the local market. For more than 50 years, the CHUNGs had operated their fast food joint in Hung Hom, witnessing the changes in the neighbourhood. They had also built a family-like relationship with the residents of the area. Even though having operated for years, the eatery still could not escape the fate of shutting down in 2017 due to urban renewal. One year later, CHUNG Kei-ching found another location in Hung Hom for re-opening. And therefore, the delightful flavour of the burger which belongs to Hong Kong can be preserved.
