Big Burger in Little China

Hello my name is Dan. The hamburger I created was inspired by my Asian American background. My father is half Kantonise and Cherokee Indian and my mother is Dutch German. This combination created some wonderfull meals growing up in my house. My father would cook Chinease food half the time and my mother would cook American and German food the other half the time. When I moved out and went to college, I cooked with both all the time. A little ginger their a little soy sauce here, combining the best of both worlds. That was the ispiration behind "Big Burger in Little China", Good Ole Mom and Dad.
