There is a huge competition out there that wishes to claim the best burger in town. From super stacked burgers, to more healthier options. One such restaurant, which has been a long time favourite for me is Ruby Tuesday. This is an American cuisine family-style restaurant that serves anything comfort-food.
Today, I wanted to introduce you to what I think is the best burger I have ever had in my life - The Alpine Swiss Cheese Burger. This burger is simply packed with flavour. Before I even talk about the cheese, let's talk about the patty. The patty, is the central element of the burger. Many disregard the fact that the burger is all about the meat, and focuses on the other flavours and combinations of the right ingredient with the right sauce. Whilst that is also crucial - and by the way, Ruby Tuesday gets this totally right - it really is about the meat. At Ruby Tuesday, each patty is prepared freshly. What does that mean? It means that it is not just any frozen patty on a grill, but it is a cooked to order patty. The waiter will ask you how you would like your patty to be cooked, and voila! You've got a piece of meat that is cooked perfectly to your liking, and seasoned to its best, and is then matched with the other ingredients and sauces.
The Alpine burger is my choice because the infamous Swiss cheese will just bombard you with the guiy texture and intense flavour. This is well complimented by the grilled mushrooms that are laid underneath the thick cheese. As you bite, you can feel the crunchy texture of the toasted bun, which is broken down by the juiciness of the beef, then wrapped by the cheese and warmed by the mushrooms. Ah my goodness... This burger really is heaven for me. And did I mention the thickness of that patty? It's around an inch thick!
Ruby Tuesday used to be located in Cityplaza of Taikoo Shing, but is currently located in the World TradeCentre in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. The location is great as it is in the epicentre of Hong Kong, a great lunch option. But be sure to make a reservation way in advance. And I mean around a week or so as it can get really crowded even on a normal weekday. Whilst you can choose to queue, it will get you waiting a good 30 minutes to an hour. Even though this is no Hong Kong food, this is a definite visit for a fantastic burger, and a must try restaurant when visiting Hong Kong.
