Jiu Thai Asian Café
There’s simply too much good food on Bethel Road, whether you’re searching for Korean barbecue, al pastor tacos, falafel, or a memorable bowl of Chinese noodles. One of our favorites is the family-run Jiu Thai, a Shaanxi-focused spot in a strip mall (the “Thai” in the name refers to a sacred Chinese mountain range), where the move is to order bowls of delicious hand-pulled biang biang noodles tossed with cilantro, chile oil, and vinegar. Other highlights include the Xi’an-style cold noodles, pork-and-cabbage steamed dumplings, and the rou jia mo, an excellent $5 Shaanxi-style pork sandwich. There are just a handful of tables, but it’s one of the area’s best spots for a casual meal.
