Lisa @ Snappy Gourmet

Beautiful pics! And the food sounds amazing! Not sure about the mutton "burger" but will take your word for it that it's good. :)

Thanks, Lisa! It is definitely mutton-y! I preferred the sesame noodles, myself, but Logan did really like the mutton burger...


Wonderful! I just got back from there.... I ate a whole bag of those dried chiles with peanuts and wished I had bought a whole lot more - have you seen them anywhere else for sale (like online!!!)?

They're totally awesome, right, Andrea? I have no idea where to get them in the States. :-( And I bet recipes would use so much chile powder it would chase me out of the house - though you could probably cook outdoors! I wonder if you could do something similar with those great NM chiles you guys have.


No luck finding them yet - we didn't even locate any in Beijing (our next stop after Xi'an).

I love this post overall - makes me wish I had made my traveling companions find that mutton-bread soup because it sounded awesome. We did have the 3.7m noodle, though. :-)

Oh Andrea, how sad! And thank you! Glad you had the big long noodle - I'm still a bit disappointed we missed out on that.
