The moment you enter (from the side), you will see photographs of famous people who have patronized this establishment. Walk up to the second floor and you will find cafeteria style seating. It's best to go after 12 noon if you want more variety. We were there in the morning and they only had 'yangrou paomo' (20 yuan each bowl) and nothing else.
This Xi'an speciality consists of two hard round white bread which you have to break into pieces (into the bowl provided) before the waiter will ladle hot lamb soup over it. It's served with cilantro and pickled garlic. Beef soup is also available if you don't like lamb.
This dish reminds me of some ingenious nomads needing to have a ready lasting staple food to serve with the game they hunt and cook in a big pot over open fire. Cool!
The restaurant was recommended to us by the bus driver and his colleague. There are many restaurants inside the city walls so you'll never want for variety.
Directions: The location is near the Ginza shopping mall in the Bell Tower area.
