5 Hong Kong Restaurants To Try The New Impossible Burger 2.0

Alternative proteins were the hot topic of 2018, and they show no signs of slowing down. Impossible, the plant-based protein alternative which arrived in Hong Kong last year, has just released their new and improved Impossible 2.0 recipe, launched in Hong Kong last week. Aside from being even more sustainable—compared to a traditional beef burger, it uses 87% less water, creates 89% emission, and 96% less land—each vegan burger contains 19 grams of protein, and is cholesterol, antibiotic and hormone-free, and with the new recipe change from wheat protein to soy protein, now skips on much of the gluten, too. With a meatier texture, taste, and that same meat-like sizzle when you put it in the pan, the Impossible 2.0 is better than the real deal. Want to try it for yourself? Check out these five fabulous renditions in Hong Kong of the Impossible Burger 2.0.

Beef & Liberty: The Impossible Chorizo Burger

Beef & Liberty are one of the top choices for a burger in Hong Kong, and their treatment of the Impossible meat doesn’t disappoint. The new signature chorizo-flavoured burger gets its smoky Spanish sausage flavour through spices like paprika while still being vegan-friendly, and is served with vegan cheddar, guacamole, jalapenos, vegan sour cream, butter lettuce and coriander. Alternatively, you can switch any of their other burger options from beef to Impossible meat, making this one of the biggest selections of Impossible burgers anywhere in the city.
