Xi'an Famous Foods

Restaurant, Chinese
Do not let this counter-serve restaurant fool you; what it lacks in high-end atmosphere, it makes up for with bold flavor. Xi’an Famou Foods offers chain-style Xi’an fare, so be sure to stop in if you’re looking for a fix of cold noodles, hand-pulled noodles, soups, and more. One of the neighborhood’s best bargains.
