"This was a nice twist for a change! If you like potstickers then you'll love this hamburger! It has a great texture and flavor with a nice fresh crunch here and there and the wasabi mayo is a nice touch."

"My family loved these burgers. Lots of flavor and texture. We left out the water chestnuts but kept everything else the same. I loved the Wasabi Mayo for myself but just used regular mayo for the kids. Will definatly make again."
