Electrifying burgers at Electric Ave

I have always wanted to try this place because of their famous burgers.

Electric Ave to me is a street in Brixton, UK where they have lots of Caribbean restaurants in that area.
Brixton is a lot more hip these days with other restaurants.

Anyway, this is the second Burger joint that I have been to in HK opened by a Brit.
What makes this one special is that everything is made in house by them from the sauces to the patties.
The chips are hand cut, soaked in ph water to remove the starch, fried three times so the chips are the most time consuming and take about 5 hours according to the menu.

It is best to eat with a friend because they have chips and fries which are both good.

Anyway, we ended up having two burgers: Classic beef with Fruit pig black pudding and the Creamy chicken.

Both burgers came in a delicious soft fluffy bun.
Classic beef with Fruit pig black pudding, bone marrow chips:

Evidently it was very tasty with lots of flavours going on as there are about 100 different ingredients inside, a touch of spiciness and sweetness and every bite was sensational.
There were onions, cheese, siracha, pickles etc.

The best bit is the black pudding which was velvety and there was a huge chunk inside the patty but unfortunately I didn't take a picture of it.
Moving on to the chips, nothing beats some real chips which you can't get in HK and these are laced with bone marrow which you can taste and smell. It has this beefy aroma to them.

Creamy hache chicken and rosemary fries:

I was really impressed with this because chicken is usually boring but they really jazzed it up. I thought it was going to be smothered in a creamy sauce but it was dressed with arugula and lots of herbs.
It tasted like Vietnamese chicken pho because of the aniseed and it was chicken hash so you still get the chicken texture.

The rosemary fries were perfectly done because I like them blonde, perfectly crisp on the outside yet fluffy on the inside.
Definitely coming again.
Next time I will order the veggie burger in advance because they do good veggie burgers as well.
