The food court in the Corner Mall in Downtown Crossing is one of the most depressing places in Boston and should be banished back to 1972 where it came from. But Xi’an makes it bearable. Don’t let the size of this little counter operation fool you - they’re cranking out food that runs laps around the neighboring fast food chains. The menu is noodle-heavy, but don’t miss the chopped meat sandwiches (that would be the rougamo). Get the dan dan noodles if you’re looking for serious spice, and the wontons if you’re just looking for some midday joy.
