With thousands of years of history in growing wheat, the southwestern Chinese city of Xi'an – an ancient Chinese capital famous for the Terracotta Warriors – is home to many kinds of flour-based food.


"Rou Jia Mo" – a popular "meat burger" or "meat sandwich" consisting of chopped meat inside a pita-like bun, is one of them. Now, the delicacy has got an official English name: Rougamo – a transliteration of its Chinese pronunciation.


The burger is also known as "the world's oldest hamburger" – it is thought to date back to the Qin Dynasty, over 2,000 years ago.
