Xi'an Sizzling Woks

Have been twice to this new place in Chinatown (902 Arch) - food from Xi'an region - nothing like it in Philly that I've ever had. Everything we tried was fantastic including Xi'an liang pi (refreshing and addictive cold sour/spicy thick and chewy noodles w cucumber and spongy tofu-like cubes), "Chinese hamburger" (rich and beautifully spiced minced meat - beef? pork? who cares - in pillowy pita-like bun), spicy sour minced pork noodles and "pita bread soaked in lamb and beef soup" (delicious broth with tiny pieces of dumpling-like pita (the size of a "bee's head" according to the menu) with black mushrooms, cellophane noodles and shaved bits of lamb - add the little bowl of chilies, cilantro and whole garlic cloves that they give you). Some of the most exciting new flavors that I've had in some time. And, dinner for 2 last night clocked in at under $20 (see link below).
