This is one of our favorite noodle spots in all of the SGV. Lao Xi’er is very low-key - the menu is pretty small and the decor is mostly huge posters of their signature dishes - but also very welcoming. The staff will talk you through the menu, explain that all the noodles are made by hand in-house, and strongly discourage you from ordering too much food. Which you’ll do anyway. Don’t skip the Lamb Soup Noodles, with small, round rolled noodles and a fragrant, herb-filled soup.
