Case in point: today's bowl of "Spicy Beef Soup Nooodles" (in Chinese on Xi An Gourmet's Hand-Pulled Noodles menu as Chuan wei niu rou mian). The bowl was large, the noodles muscular and chewy, the broth dark and beefy with a meal's worth of tender braised beef brisket. and enough cilantro and Chinese mustard to let me know I was getting my vegetables. What more could I want for $6.99? Also available in lamb.
Where slurped: Xi An Gourmet, 3741 Geary Blvd. at 2nd Avenenue, San Francisco
Hi, thought I would reach out to you, because you seem to love this food as much as (perhaps more than) I do.ReplyDelete
I inhaled a bowl this evening, and it was absolutely wonderful. I have come to Xi An Gourmet 5 or 6 times now, and have enjoyed several dishes. However, each time I feel that the noodles should be chewier. They are just a little too soft, and this is a minor disappointment for me every time.
Still, the food is wonderful, and the owner is nice.
