    Tastes close enough to my mom's cooking. Not much table space so I wouldn't recommend coming as a group.

    The line can be unpleasant and the interior's austere, but it's famous for a reason. Skip the jajiangmian and get the classics, like the spicy cumin lamb noodles.

    The spicy and tingly beef in soup is delicious; very spicy, but the beef is really tender and tastes fantastic. The noodles are also great! (And they can reduce the spice if you want!)

    First timers can't go wrong with N4/NS4(w/soup). Also they take spice very seriously, go with medium or mild. Last but not least wear a bib or bring a spare t-shirt! Things get messy #slurping

    Best destination for the food of the Chinese city of Xi'an. Try the chewy liang pi noodles or "lamb face" salad, all doused in their alluringly fiery house sauces.

    Noodles that don't leave you with a craving, but rather a hungering that you will spend the rest of your life seeking again. Can't go wrong with cumin lamb noodles (in or out of soup).
