What we Always ordered:

– Lamb Fried Hand-Pulled Noodles (Yang Rou Bang Mien)
– Lamb Soup (Yang Rou Tang)
– Skewered Cumin Lamb Tendon (Yang Rou Chuaner)

Ordered One-Time:
– Shredded Potatoes (Tu Dou Si):Ordered it this one  time because XiAn was closed already. Xin Jian’s shredded potatoes were not that great. The taste was reminiscent of Rippled Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips
– Lamb and Vegetables with Pinched Noodles in Sour Soup
– Lamb Noodle Soup
– Baked Pastry stuffed with Lamb
