The Xi’an Food Tour Walking Map
The map above shows all of the best restaurants and street food to try in Xi’an. If you’re unsure of where the best restaurants in Xi’an are or if you’re looking to go on a self guided Xi’an food tour, you can follow along with this map and try all of the classics. The best food in Xi’an is all here, like biang biang noodles, crispy pork roujiamo pita sandwiches, juicy and spicy beef dumplings, and more.
One tip: AVOID HUIMINJIE. It is extremely touristy and there is far better food just a short step outside of it. This is where the locals eat. You can try authentic hui muslim Chinese street food here eaten by locals and made for locals.
There are three streets you will want to spend most of your time on to enjoy the best food in Xian:
- Dapiyuan and around
Most of the foods in this Xi’an food guide are found on these 3 streets. The perfect hostel is located right in between them, at Alley Youth Hostel. This will allow you to walk around and explore and eat as much delicious Xian food as you can! The first 14 are in the hui district in the core of the city and featured on this map.
My personal favourites are the Suantang Jiaozi Dumplings (#1), Yangroupaomo (#2), and the Xi’an pork roujiamo (#14).
