New York City cult favorite Xi'an Famous Foods could open in Boston within five years, reports Boston.com's Restaurant Hub via DNAinfo New York. Founded almost a decade ago, it's now an eight-restaurant chain with the latest opening on New York's Upper East Side.
Xi'an is a city in northwest China, and hand-pulled noodles in a spicy oil are one of the region's distinctive dishes. Around Boston, one of the only places to find Xi'an cuisine, including hand-pulled noodles, is at Gene's Chinese Flatbread Cafe, which now has a location in the Leather District in addition to its original Chelmsford spot (and a cult following of its own).
