There's still time to get over to the Burger Cup Launch Party for some seriously tasty burgers (and maybe, just maybe, a few beers). However, once the revelry stops at 8pm, it's time to get down to the serious stuff: voting

From now on, the power to decide Beijing's best burger is in your hands as we kick off the 2014 version of our Burger Cup!

Last year, Home Plate Bar-B-Que took home the crown, narrowly beating Plan B in a down-to-the-wire cook off. Will Home Plate be able to repeat their success for the third year running?

In preliminary seeding we narrowed a field of almost 90 Beijing venues that serve burgers down to the list of 64 competing for the crown. This year's top 4 seeds are Home Plate, Great Leap, The Big Smoke and Slow Boat, followed closely by Plan B, The Local, Let's Burger and Frost Coffee, Cocktails and Dining.

In Round One (open now through Aug 31), the 64 contenders will be wittled down to 32. Voting in round two starts shortly afterwards, with the field being halved each round until we're left with but one king of the Beijing burgers.

Come 8pm, visit our Burger Cup page to cast your opinion:
