Xi’an Famous Foods serves good, affordable, spicy Chinese noodles and burgers at all of their spots around the city. This location, not far south of Columbia, has a few counter seats, and also works for takeout lunch or dinner (although they don’t recommend it, because they insist their food is best when it’s eaten immediately). Our go-to is the spicy cumin lamb noodles. We also like the spicy hot oil seared noodles, but just know that trying to speak after eating these will be as productive as talking to your dentist after he gives you a shot of novocaine.
