Trip Notes

Snacks in Xi'an

Xi'an is a paradise of wheaten food. If you have some free time on the day, it is a fun to forage snacks at local food street. Usually we recommend Muslim Quarters that serve more Muslim food and Yongxingfang Food Street where gathers traditional food of Shaanxi Province and it is nearby East Gate of the City Wall.

These snacks are recommended: Shaanxi Sandwich (La Zhi Rou Jia Mo), Cold Noodles (Liang Pi) Dumpling Stuffed with Hot Gravy at Jia Brothers' Restaurant (Jia San Guan Tang Bao) Bread Soaked in Mutton Soup (Yang Rou Pao Mo) Various Noodles
