Roujiamo or rou jia mo, literally translates to 'meat sandwiched between bread' and is also referred to as the Chinese Hamburger - it is a street food originating from the cuisine of Shaanxi Province and now widely consumed all over China. Our version blends lentils with beef and eats like a sloppy joe.
