Village Voice's Description

Descended from a food stall in the Golden Mall in Flushing, Xi'an Famous Foods replicates noodle and lamb dishes from the province of Shaanxi, where chili oil and Asian cumin are the predominant flavors, and noodles are often sluiced with a toasted-sesame tahini, as well. The wheat-flour noodles are made as you watch by a fascinating pinching and pulling process, resulting in thick noodles of varying width. Innovatively, this small stall offers color photos of all the offerings, which is a boon to getting exactly what you want. My current fave is D2, which includes noodles, chili oil, lamb, and Sichuan peppercorns for a prodigious burn. For vegetarians, A1--cold Liang Pi noodles with dark soy and intriguing boxcars of spongy gluten.

Tips from foursquare

  • BLOUIN ARTINFO on 06/04/10

    The best cheap dining option after a day of LES art-hunting. Once you have the savory cumin lamb hand-pulled noodles, spiked with hot chili oil, you will never want to eat anything else ever again.

  • Serious Eats on 04/23/13

    Xi'an's excellent hand-pulled noodles topped with cumin-spiced lamb is one of the best ways to spend $5 in New York.
