Tragedy in Xi’An Famous Foods

I returned to Xi’an Famous Foods when I was in St. Mark’s place after a long hiatus of eating their hand torn noodles. I had seen that the chain was expanding like crazy with locations all over New York but didn’t think it would affect the menu. I was wrong, dead wrong. There were three things I always got when I went: the cumin lamb burger, whichever noodle dish I felt like eating that day, and the lamb face salad. Well, no more. It’s gone off the menu. It could be any of the many reasons restaurants 86 a dish, but I hope they bring it back. Until then, I’ll be on strike and boycott their delicious noodles… Maybe just one more lamb burger.
