We've been meaning to visit Xi'an Famous Foods for a while and recent spectacular review in Timeout New York was just the push to make it happen. Why I waited so long is beyond me. The place is small and you take-out or eat in at communal tables: order first, sit down and wait for your order # to be called. The western chinese cuisine has lot more flavor and spices. My family loved the cumin lamb noodles, pork "Zha Jiang" noodles, and spicy cucumber salad. The noodles are hand made. An extra treat were the variety of ice teas: jasmine and chrysanthemum were our favorites. Lunch for 3 was under $25. The Chinatown Ice Cream Factory is next to Xi-an for an extra treat after lunch/dinner.
