The best $6.00 meal ever: Savory Cumin Lamb Noodles, or just “D1″. Xi’an Famous Foods just opened in the East Village to much fanfare. I guess they have a few spots throughout the city and have been featured on the Food Network and Anthony Bourdain’s show.
I’m no noodle expert, but their hand pulled liang pi noodles are the best noodles in the entire world, and conveniently located in the East Village on St. Marks. Well, they must be pretty good if they’re the number 2 result for liang pi in Google.
Here’s a picture of the tiny interior. Go to the Flickr full size version to zoom into the actual menu items and prices.
