    Honbo Burgers - Any reviews?

    Must have been living under a rock for the last couple of years...

    According to well informed people I have been missing out on good burgers - since I've not had honbo.

    Better than Shake Shack (I'm not impressed anyways) and the rest like Triple Os etc...

    Between this and not having a clue what this Basehall thing is in Jardine house ... obviously have a lot of catching up to do.

    Overall pretty good albeit pricey. I like their non-beef based sandwiches including a fried chicken special they had a few years back as well as the scallop burger.

    Shake Shack is still better in terms of quality and value for $$

    fair criticism. The nacho / processed style cheese sauce is a quintessential American thing that evokes low brow potluck dinners, Super Bowl parties, and movie theatre nachos. As an American, it's a taste of nostalgia but for non-Americans I'm sure it's weird.

    the hk milk tea milkshake at SS is very yummy...

    I like the burgers and fries at 5 guys over honbo - i feel honbo is overpriced. butchers club burgers were just too fatty for more.

    tbh the basic burger at my local classified isnt half bad!

    Shake Shack's buns are terrible and the burgers are a bit too greasy for my liking. Need to test these Honbo

    SS burgers are sub McDonald's for the price. Shakes are good though.
