The Great Wall Burger

The Great Wall Burger

GO Burger and BLT Burger in New York City.

Chinese food and burgers are an uncommon pairing.

RECIPE: Drunken Noodles

Although these two cuisines may seem as foreign as can be, The Great Wall Burger combines two distinct flavors into one of the most delicious meals you can stuff between two buns.

Vegetables like watercress, cabbage and carrots are infused with soy sauce and topped with marinated tofu, which all are placed on top of the burger.

What would a Chinese dish be without noodles? This recipe has it all, including rice noodles fried to a crispy perfection.
