Xi’an Famous Foods opens July 3rd-Named for the capital of the Shaanxi province in central China, this hole in the wall noodle den is branching out yet again, this time in kitschy St. Marks Place. Xi’an reached culinary noodle and burger stardom- with help perhaps, after Anthony Bourdain sung their praises on his show No Reservations “This place is unbelievable! This lamb burger hits me right in the pleasure zone, great in any language or culture” says Bourdain. Along with the Cumin Spiced Lamb Burger, Xi’an also serves up Liang Pi “Cold Skin” Noodles, Stewed Pork Burger, Lamb Pao Mo Soup, and various types of Hand-Pulled Noodles.

    I’ve been there twice and LOVED IT! Great pork “burger” (on NY Mag’s 101 Best Sandwiches in NYC list).

    Lamb offal soup is well and the cold hand-pulled noodles hits the spot!
