Best Hamburgers New York 2009 - Andy's Seafood and Grill
We're going to step out of the American hamburger arms race in favor of a burger from another mother. Gua bao is identified on the menu at Andy's Seafood and Grill as a "Taiwanese hamburger." It's actually the mantou-wrapped pork bun that many people might recognize from Momofuku (but it was certainly not invented there). This superior burger is made from steamy, sweetish mantou, folded around a braised slab of pork belly, along with crushed peanuts and pickled cucumber. There are several other charmingly eccentric translations on the menu, which Andy himself will be happy to elucidate upon.
