amazing adventure, thanks for sharing!


Those pork sandwiches looks really good. I love the simplicity of it, just really good pork inside delicious flat bread.


The xiar bing didn't look very appetizing. It was translucent from the grease! I'm surprised no one got heartburn afterwards.

The pork buns looked quite tasty though. And you can't go wrong when the shop has such diverse group of customers. Thanks for the post!


Hi Kat - We really enjoyed our time in Xi'an.

Hi Lynnea - Man that pork was good.

Hi Christine - Thanks so much for reading!


I had to Google "pork confit," well hells bells it just carnitas! In my old neighborhood someone owned a copper pot in which they made traditional caritas, and they used to loan the pot out to friends, because I'd see it in the back of a truck passing my house going to someone else's house for a backyard carnitas feast. Man do I miss the smells that used to come out of my old neighborhood!


I actually thought that the stuffed flatbread looked good! Or at least the stuffing part looked good!


Hi AZ - Well, sort of........

Hi CR - Actually, xiar bing was terrible.......but it sure was cheap.
