CATEGORY: Chinese, North-east Chinese, Xi'an food
DRINK: water
WE THINK: This is one of the few restaurants we've found outside of China that serves our favourite noodle dish in the world: Liang Pi cold noodles. Although they are not nearly as good as the ones you get in China (e.g. here), at $4.50 / portion we have happily become regulars at the East Village branch of Xi'an Famous Foods, a tiny spot with 12 stools and very fast service. Other good things on the menu include the Zha Jiang noodles (ask for spicy!) and the comforting cumin lamb burger. And how about a bowl of spicy tofu for $2?!! More please!
