Yum. We love Martin Yan's recipes and this was lovely. I particularly loved the way the sesame and hoisin came through - enough that you could identify them, but not too much of each to dominate the flavour. Thanks, Mercy!

yum yum yum... It is soo juicy! I find that while frying (open pan), the juice in the burger tend to shrink the width of the burger, thus I would recommend shaping them extra wide for when they puff up.

This was arguably the best burger I've ever eaten
