Anyone wandering up to Nanjing, there are good burgers available there.

Burger King down in the South end of town, near the Fu Zi Miao Confucius temple and associated tourist disict, produce something vaguely acceptable, better than McD at any rate. The Blue Sky expat bar on Shanghai Lu are better, but more expensive. Owned by an Aussie, though, so they do weird things like putting eggs on some burgers.

But British-owned "Corner", 60 m North of Blue Sky between two pink shops, are better. Don't order the chillie burger; it turns out to be an ordinary burg with chili powder sprinkled on. Their other burgers, however, are excellent. They have a menu of half a dozen variations.

Mango sauce??? Beetroot??? Eggs??? I'm surprised you're not advocating replacing the meat with the Aussie equivalent, namely a huge spider beaten flat and grilled on both sides.

Lost my dignity when I read that.

*Sigh*  I suppose burgers are going to go the way of pizza: broccoli, chutney, and Mao knows what else thrown in there.  Beetroot or some such.

don't tell me you actually put bait on the hook. If one of those pesky fish bites you have to interupt your peace and tranquility - not to mention you have to put down your beer. afafafafaf
