The upscale offshoot of popular chainlet Xi'an Famous Foods is named for the sound the noodles make when they're being pulled and whacked against a counter. It's my favorite venue in the neighborhood for a taste of classic Sino-Muslim delicacies, like spicy “cold-skin” noodles and platters of stewed lamb spine followed, if I’m feeling brave, by an invigorating shot or two of traditional Chinese moonshine infused with a laundry list of esoteric, possibly illegal ingredients, including ground sea horse, deer antler, and a substance that the “medicinal liquor” portion of the drinks menu lists as “seal penis.”
