Five Guys HK opened its doors on Monday, 19 November. Check out the video from the media preview!
Five Guys will keep their standard menu for us here in HK
Shake Shack has been the burger buzz around town for the past few months, but this is under contention with the arrival of these... guys.
What makes Five Guys special?
If you’re unfamiliar with the menu, the burgers come with two patties. If you only want one, you should order a “little” hamburger. Then there’s the unlimited toppings, so find your favourite combination. It may take awhile – there are 250,000+ combinations to get through.
What are the Five Guys toppings?
Mayo, relish, onions, lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, fried onions, sautéed mushrooms, ketchup, mustard, jalepeño peppers, green peppers, A.-1. Sauce, BBQ sauce and hot sauce
It will be interesting to see if Hong Kong follows the Five Guys US tradition of more is better, with the fries famous for their large serving size. They also come in Cajun style and are known for being hand cut and cooked in pure peanut oil (nutrition and allergen information here) and are apparently are so good you may weep with happiness.
Did you know?
Five Guys DO NOT have freezers installed in their shops! Nothing is frozen.
We start with the best, freshest ingredients and source locally where possible. Our bread is baked fresh daily to our own proprietary recipe and quality controlled every week. We don’t use freezers, microwaves or timers in our restaurants. We learn how to cook and serve great food fast. – Joel Bearden, Five Guys
From their humble beginnings in Washington, DC, in 1986, these bad-ass burger boys have been serving nothing but the best on their climb to the top. This year, Bahrain, Belgium, Luxembourg, Italy and Switzerland welcome Five Guys along with Hong Kong, as the company passes 1,500 locations worldwide.
Having recently been named America’s favourite burger chain for the second year in a row by Harris Poll’s survey, Five Guys is not simply another restaurant opening – it’s the beginning of a new burger-dominated era in Hong Kong!
