It follows us into New York City, where we learn from the masters of Western Chinese cuisine at Xi’an Famous Foods—Jason Wang and his dad David Shi—another multi-generational family food business.
We are huge fans of Xi’an Famous Foods, so it was thrilling to be able to actually go into the kitchen in their Chelsea location, watch father and son at work, and get a chance to hand-rip noodles under their tutelage.
