Burger Circus A Touch of Americana on Hollywood


Few nations have the pop culture following of the United States – whether or not you’re a fan of the US, you’d have to be a hermit in the Kalahari Desert not to recognise the cultural symbols it has exported across the globe.

One of those is the humble hamburger. While we’ve talked of the hamburger’s history here before, it was America’s culture of diners – houses of simple, blue collar fare feeding a generation of nation builders – where this simple sandwich made its name.

Now, Hong Kong has its own ode to the diner with the opening of Burger Circus on Hollywood Road. The newest venture by Black Sheep Restaurants, whose eateries include Carbone, La Vache!, and Chôm Chôm, Burger Circus offers a cut down, super-simplified menu where the hamburger sits centre stage. Amidst interiors themed on a 19th century rail car dining room, the diner serves up those dishes you crave after a half-dozen long island iced teas: griddled burgers, sandwiches, fries, and adult-friendly milkshakes. The signature treat is the Circus Classic, a 5oz beef patty with lettuce, tomato, and Circus sauce, though the Whole Show, with its fried egg, American cheese, beetroot, and spicy mayo additions, might be more satisfying, especially when the night continues with a Drunken Monkey bourbon and vanilla shake.

Meals for working men.
