“signature hand ripped noodles”

A brief survey of our fans showed us that our fans are located, well, everywhere in Midtown, so we decided to open in the middle of the bustling neighborhood. Opened April 22, 2013, the Midtown store has two kitchens to handle the lunch rush, with 18 stools along wall counters. Xi’an Famous Foods began as a 200 square foot basement stall in the Golden Shopping Mall in Flushing, N.Y. The original location, established in late 2005, was the first restaurant to bring the little-known cuisine of Xi’an to the United States, with signature hand-ripped noodles, secret spice mixes, and Xi’an “burgers” with housemade flatbread. Since then, we’ve expanded to three locations in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn. As a family-owned business, we hope to reintroduce the world to the unique cuisine of our hometown: liangpi “cold skin” noodles, lamb pao mo soup, and wide hand-pulled “biang biang” noodles, all in its most authentic form.

This place feels very strongly that ordering something "not spicy" is a bad idea, but unless you're the kind of person who orders the spiciest, most nuclear, face-melting, ghost pepper chicken wings on any given menu, ask them to tone it down a bit. Because otherwise, you will be VERY uncomfortable in a few hours. Line went quick but the space is small so plan for takeout, especially if you're with a group of more than two people. I got the spicy cumin lamb noodles since it's allegedly THE thing to get, and other than the heat level, it was good, albeit SUUUPER greasy. Amazing noodles.
