Romancing the burger
Beijing’s posh Langham hotel has found much to love in the humble hamburger, elevating the everyman sandwich into a series of gourmet treats. Settle for the double-cheese beef burger (with avocado) if you like, but give the whole list a good look first: there’s the grilled duck burger, grilled salmon & prawn burger, the Japanese snapper burger (with wasabi mayo and fruit salsa), the Indian tandoori chicken burger and the vegetarian smoked tofu burger. All 138 yuan except the tofu burger (it’s 128 yuan); all include a 500ml imported draft beer, which chef Raymond Chen rates as the ultimate burger pairing.
