Best Asian Noodles in NYC
Food is a highly subjective love of course, but my money on the best bowl of Asian noodles in NYC always goes to Xi'an Famous Foods. Most of their locations are small, you will wait and in the summer it won't feel worth it. However, once you dig in to your bowl of spicy broth, stewed pork/lamb/oxtail that falls apart on your fork because it's so tender and hand-ripped noodles– you will understand. This isn't like the ramen you think of when you hear 'Asian noodles'. Do yourself a favor, skip the available cans of soda and instead opt for their homemade cold jasmine tea (sweetened or unsweetened) - it perfectly cuts the spice that a coke cannot handle. There are 4 locations, including one in Queens, most of which are too busy to count on during lunch time; visit for a late lunch or early dinner and you'll be thankful. You may also find a seat!
