Xi’an Famous Foods started in Flushing but if you’re not able to traipse all the way out there, they have a location (standing room only for maybe three small people) in Chinatown. I had the “N2”, the spicy beef hand-ripped noodles (similar to knife-shaved noodles, or dao xiao mian 刀削麵). My tolerance for spicy food isn’t that great — so I had to take a break halfway through — but the smarting, burning sensation around my lips and tongue was well worth the deliciously tender, succulent beef and the chewiest (“QQ”), most flavorful spicy noodles you could ever find Stateside for $6.

  1. Hey, took the opportunity to check out your food blog (which is awesome btw) and saw this. I’ve seen this place a gazillion times on Main Street since I live in Flushing but never thought to go in. I always was skeptical of all the random food stalls on Main Street serving Chinese food because of the dinghy conditions but my Chinese friends have introduced me to a couple of hole-in-the-wall places that have been great. Definitely will look into this place now 🙂
