    Rou Jia Mo is a traditional Chinese burger originating from the northwest region of China. Consisting of tender, stewed beef stuffed inside freshly baked bread-like buns, it offers a delightful combination of savory flavors and contrasting textures. Accompanied by spicy oil, onions, and jalapeños for an extra kick, the Rou Jia Mo embodies the essence of northwest Chinese cuisine with its rich, aromatic profile and cultural authenticity.

    From Prep to Plate

    Seth Tillman stops by Northwest Chinese Food in College Park, Maryland to sample their Rou jia mo (Chinese hamburger). Chef Hua begins by preparing the dough for the buns, forming them into small towers and baking them to perfection. Meanwhile, she cooks the beef filling until it's tender and flavorful, ready to be chopped and seasoned.

    Specializing in dishes from Shanxi province — a cuisine that can be hard to find even in big city Chinatowns — this phenomenal sliver of a restaurant is just steps from the University of Maryland’s College Park campus. Handmade noodles are the order of the day, whether stir-fried with chile oil or suspended in lamb and wood ear mushroom soup. Be sure to grab a couple of rou jia mo — stuffed flat buns — for the road.
