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 Noodle Soup
- Baked Pastry stuffed with Lamb
