For a quick Chinese meal, Xi’an Noodles should be on your shortlist. There’s a ton of variety here, from noodles and soups to dumplings and sandwiches. We’re fans of all of it, especially their famous cumin lamb noodles that are so spicy that they could probably kindle a bonfire. If you’re a total wimpy baby when it comes to heat (and even if you’re not), you’ll want to spend some alone time with the stewed pork burger and an order of dumplings.
