Last year, when social enterprise Green Monday first introduced Hong Kong to Beyond Burger by Beyond Meat – the vegan patty that looks, cooks, and tastes like meat without sacrificing on taste or juicy satisfaction – the 852 welcomed the plant-based product with open arms. Revolutionizing the future of protein, we saw many carnivores, omnivores, and herbivores express their bewilderment and delight at how uncanny the Beyond Burger tasted like the conventional patty we were used to. As demand grows, the big players in the city’s F&B industry are rising up to the occasion. From fast-casual classic to extraordinary gourmet perfection, here are the six best Beyond Burgers you can find in Hong Kong.
Green Common Beyond Burger – Vegan
Green Common was the original spot of the official Beyond Burger launch in Hong Kong so it makes perfect sense that Green Common knows how to make a great one. Their upgraded classic, Beyond Burger Plus (HKD108), comes with vegan cheese from Daiya, generous heap of ripe avocado, and thick cut of tomato all on a vegan bun, are all the markings of what a burger should be.

The Butchers Club Beyond Burger – Vegan
Bring da ruckus on the outstanding partnership between Butchers Club and Beyond Meat! The beloved burger chain launched a plant-based version of a customer favorite: the Beyond Wu Tang-Style (HKD120). A Korean-inspired creation featuring vegan kimchi, a Beyond Burger patty fried in spicy Sriracha, with sweet potato tempura, Daiya vegan cheese, JUST vegan mayo, all on a vegan bun, this behemoth burger is sure to satisfy one and all.
Multiple locations across Hong Kong island, Kowloon and Southern District. Full list here
Confusion Plant Based Kitchen Beyond Burger -Vegan
Newly opened Confusion Plant Based Kitchen does a mean Beyond Meat Burger (HKD145). Topped with homemade fermented sauerkraut, smoked paprika ketchup, vegan cheddar cheese from Daiya sandwiched between vegan handcrafted rye sourdough bun from local Latvian bakers, Mayse Artisan Bakery, the burger is ferociously delicious thanks to the crunchy sourness of the sauerkraut.

Hemingway’s DB Beyond Burger – Vegan
No reputable gastropub would be missing a burger on its menu and Discovery Bay’s favorite vegan joint, Hemingway’s, is no exception. Serving up a no-frills burger with crisp lettuce, hearty tomatoes, and homemade vegan sauce that’s anything but basic, go for the whole entrée or share the mini sliders plate with friends.

Porterhouse Beyond Burger
Sleek and seductive up Lan Kwai Fong’s California Tower, Porterhouse brings their sexy vegetarian interpretation by way of their “Beyond” Vegan Burger (HKD 168) by smoking a Beyond Meat patty and filling it with dairy-free cheese, avocado and lettuce all on a soft brioche bun.

The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Beyond Burger – Vegan
