XIAN FAMOUS FOODS – DARING TASTY CHEAP EATS

Chef Jason Wang combines quick chinatown service with a bold fusion of flavors such as cumin, lamb and coriander that read more Middle Eastern on top of hearty homemade asian thick noodles.

The prices are cheap, the flavors are big and pretty much every dish is a winner. The hip hop music and looped Noodle Making video also add to the street-style awesomeness of this place. It is pretty oily and spicy making for great hangover food.
