2018: Queens Voted Xi’an Famous Bowl Best Chinese Restaurant!
Xi’an Famous Bowl
41-10 Main Street, Flushing, NY 11355
Xi’an Famous Foods began as a 200 square foot basement stall in the Golden Shopping Mall in Flushing, N.Y. The original location, established in late 2005, was the first restaurant to bring the little-known cuisine of Xi’an to the United States, with signature hand-ripped noodles, secret spice mixes, and Xi’an “burgers” with housemade flatbread. Since then, we’ve expanded to nine locations in Manhattan, one in Brooklyn and two in Queens in total. As a family-owned business, we hope to reintroduce the world to the unique cuisine of our hometown: liangpi “cold skin” noodles, lamb pao mo soup, and wide hand-pulled “biang biang” noodles, all in its most authentic form.
2017: Queens Voted Little Dumpling Best Chinese Restaurant!
252-20 Northern Blvd, Little Neck. 718-225-1178
There’s nothing little about the dumplings at Little Dumpling. On the contrary, actually. This Taiwanese and Shanghainese restaurant in Little Neck is known for more than just its out-of-this-world soup dumplings, beef noodles and hot pots. The restaurant, known also for its quaint and cozy ambiance, is lauded as the best Chinese restaurant in the borough. Serving up traditional dim sum dishes like steamed pork soup buns and spring rolls, as well as delectable meat dishes like twice-cooked pork and fan-favorites like chicken and broccoli, Little Dumpling does it all. And they do it best.
