1. Xi An Famous Foods

Xi An Famous Foods was founded by American-born Chinese Jason Wang, a second generation Chinese immigrant who is a big fan of Hip Hop. Amid the tunes, diners will be spoilt for choice with more than 20 food items, including a pork “burger” and piping hot noodles.

Food portions are generally hearty and filling enough to last you till the next meal. Diners can also quench their thirst with  drinks such as Chrysanthemum, Jasmine Green Tea, and Hawthorn Tea, all of which are brewed in their own factory based in Brooklyn.

With outlets at various hot locations such as SoHo and Garment District, good Chinese food is always within reach! As the store is self-service, tipping is not compulsory.

P.S. Chinese model Xiao Wen is also a fan!

Address: 11 locations in Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. Full list can be found here
