    I know this is gonna come up with this video regards to Xi'an Famous Foods in NYC, I think their "burgers" are ok but everything else is very subpar. MUCH better noodles and Liang Pi elsewhere. New York Food Court and New World Mall just to name a few...

      Mikey...... I am getting hungry after seeing this video. I like the 3rd restaurant that you visited. Nice and spicy is the way to go! I would of ordered 3-4 large bowls of rice go with the chicken swimming in that hot oil 😅😅😅😅 and some of those noodles that you tried. I just wish that we have bigger Asian population there in North Carolina. I miss all of the great foods!

    Good introduction of Xian food! I definitely will try some. You might missed one place called Lumingyuan 鹿鸣原 in the food court besides Osaka supermarket. It would be nice if you could give some critics on that place too.

    Now, the tortuous part is that I know fully well how all of these taste, all of which I love, and I am at a place where I can't get to any of these food, and this video is just driving me crazy...

    I went to Joojak restaurant because Mike strongly recommended it, but I was thoroughly disappointed. The food was totally overpriced, and the portion was pathetically small. The restaurant itself wasn't clean either. I definitely wouldn't recommend it!!
    听了Mike 的建议才去吃的。 太失望了。 凉皮里最好吃的豆腐皮竟然是硬的。 没有吸到一点酱料的味道。
    又贵 又小份 我知道 Mike 是西安来的 想支持老乡吧 所以夸大了吧。 感觉老板是很敷衍的随便做做的感觉。

    Mike, after watching your video I told my friend to cancel all his plans the next day so we could try Joojak. It did not disappoint. We loved everything we tried! The owner admitted that business picked up a lot and at first they didn't know why. But people have been telling her, it is because you recommended it. Thanks so much!

  • Laura and Cory Jurica

    We just got back from Xi'an a couple of months ago and I lived on their burgers. We were coming back from Tibet and had an over abundance of noodles ( Breakfast, second breakfast, lunch and dinner some days) Though they were delicious we were craving anything but noodles. The burgers were such a nice change for quick street food.

The owner and her daughter chatted with us a lot, luckily the restaurant wasn't too busy when we went. Thank you so much for the recommendation!
