John Hackett and his wife, Arami, met in China, moved to Chicago and Arami experimented to duplicate his favorite Chinese street food, roujiamo. The Han Burger was born. The sandwich consists of marinated meat slow cooked in spices and combined with hot peppers, veggies and garnishes on a toasted bun. Every part of The Han Burger is constructed from scratch using the same ingredients and techniques used in Xi'an today: marinating meat for over twelve hours then slow cooking it. Traditional "mo" buns are manually pressed and griddled. Choose from garlic aioli or Frank's Red Hot aioli to complement potatoes or add on to Han Burgers. The Han Solo is the pork version or go for The Beef Han - and add kimchi, fried egg or classic Chicago giardiniera. Sides include paprika potato wedges (which you can top with green onions, egg, pork belly, etc.) and kimchi cole slaw. Yum!
- Take Out: "Park in the lot at 324 N Leavitt and call. Your food will be brought out for curbside pickup."
- Best for Take Out Because: The roujiamo has been a favorite street food in China for two millennia and is considered the world's earliest take on a hamburger.
