To date, I’m still on a quest looking for the best burger in Hong Kong, so when a new burger joint pops up you can count on me scoping it out.
We stumbled upon Beef & Liberty 2 weeks ago while looking for a bite to eat in the Star Street area. We were turned away at the door without a reservation because they were still in their soft opening stages. Eager to try them, I booked a table for lunch the following weekend. Read more >>
