    I feel compelled to say that I have tried every one of the Hand-Pulled Noodle dishes with meat at Xian, and the Concubine Chicken is the least delicious of them all. (It’s still crazy delicious though.)

  • Holy crap, the Concubine’s Chicken was good! What’s your favorite dish? This was my first time there. My only complaints are that the chicken was cut oddly, which created some sharp bone fragments and the wait was over a half an hour.
