Xi'an Famous Foods, New York, NY

Xi'an Famous Foods Restaurant Review

: After foodies and food bloggers discovered Xi'an Famous Foods in a food court in Flushing, Queens, a mini empire was launched. The Chinatown location has moved down to the street to a larger space, which is decorated with a playful cartoon mural by NYC-based artist Jon Burgerman. The famous lamb burger is a lamb patty mixed with cumin and peppers and placed in a Chinese-style bun --- it's worth every penny. There are also variations on the theme of spicy noodles and oodles and oodles more lamb dishes. Slake your thirst with chrysanthemum iced tea. For dessert, you'll find stick rice stuffed with dates and drizzled with honey. Other locations.
