Biangbiang Mian
You can't talk about Xi'an without talking about biangbiang noodles, a unique Shaanxi food. The character for biang is one of the most complex, consisting of 58 strokes. With all the hype about the giant character, I was expecting the noodles to be a bit of a let down—oh, was I wonderfully wrong!

We tried the famed noodles at Biangbiang Mian, a chain of restaurants that specializes in them. The noodles are huge, practically long lasagna sheets. The sauce reminded us of a kind of thick minestrone soup: tomato, flakes of slow-cooked lamb, and fresh herbs. It's such a cheap, hearty, and delicious meal—I would eat this every day if I lived in Xi'an.
