Eat & Drink Xi'an

Noodles are a basic staple food in Chinese cuisine and visitors flock to Xi'an for Biang Biang Mian. Originating from Xi'an, this hand-made broad noodle mixed with chilli oil became popular only because of its addictive taste, but also for having the most complex Chinese character in its name with a total of 58 strokes.
