Murger Han

London's first Xi'an restaurant proudly offers the authentic "Murger," a historic delicacy translating to "meat sandwiched in bread." Originating from China's Qin Dynasty, this Chinese street food, with purported energy-boosting properties, draws parallels to the Western hamburger. Explore the rich heritage and flavourful experience of this ancient culinary tradition.

Top tip:  Winter in London calls for warmth, and what better way to nurture both your stomach and heart than indulging in a comforting clay pot casserole.

Consider this your cue to head there pronto!

Top tip: Maximise your experience with a 2-meat combo. Our favourites? The crispy pork belly and roast duck—absolute must-tries!
