A very good burger with just the right touch of Asian flavors. Loved the Sesame Soy Mayo and the Slaw Topping. A new but delicious way to enjoy a burger.

I like my burgers to be pretty simple, but for a more elaborate burger, this was fantastic! I didn't do the shredded carrots, but other than that followed the recipe exactly. Delicious!

Great fresh take on your average burger! Loved the slaw topping!

Burgers are very simple, but the addition of the may and slaw takes them up a notch. Very tasty and the textures work well together.

We loved these burgers! The mayo has great flavor and the slaw adds such great crunch. All of it together makes for a delicious and quick meal. This was an adventurous burger recipe for us, but we loved it.

So delicious! My husband and I enjoyed this as a special date-at-home meal and it was a hit. I made a few changes to the recipe to take advantage of products I already had on hand. http://stolenmomentscooking.com/east-meets-west-burgers/
