If you haven’t been to any of Xi’an Famous Foods’ 12 city locations yet, what are you waiting for? The Northern Chinese fast-casual chain got its start in Flushing, Queens’ Golden Shopping Mall, and the expansion has done nothing to temper the spice nor quell the deliciousness of the noodles. Even Ruth Reichl is a fan. Go for the Mt. Qi Vegetable Noodles (extra spicy, if you can) with an order of the soft tofu, if you’re very hungry. The dumplings, too, will never disappoint.
