The menu includes the Xian Street Food meat burger (known as Roujiamo), which is like a hamburger, but with a much longer history. Roujiamo could be the world's oldest sandwich or hamburger since this bread dates back to the Qin Dynasty and the meat to the Zhou Dynasty. There are just two elements -- baked leavened bread and shredded braised meat. A good Chinese burger (jiamo) should be baked using a traditional furnace instead of an electric oven. Lean pork will be braised for hours – then hand-shredded and pocketed in the bread.
Another menu highlight is Biang Biang noodles, this is a very interesting and popular dish in Shaanxi province. This is where it all began! Biang Biang noodles are named after the sound made when the large belt-like noodle dough is slapped against the counter as they are pulled. The result is an extremely long, thick noodle topped with chili, pork and vegetables like carrots, potato and greens. Don’t forget your camera as it’s likely the longest noodle you’ll ever have! This is like food theatre, as you can watch them being made.
