The food at Shaanxi Garden is mostly from the northwest of China, and one of that area’s claims to fame is that they invented a kind of hamburger. It involves a crispy fried “bun” that’s really more like dumpling dough, stuffed with delicious shredded pork that you should absolutely cover with the chilli oil that’s on your table. All the better to go with the Chinese talent shows they have playing in the very simple space.The sweet and spicy biang biang noodles are worth trying out too.
