However, Lee only recently started making biang biang mian, a popular hand-pulled noodle dish from the city of Xi’an in China’s Shaanxi Province.
“When I was growing up, people would mix up Taiwanese and other northern Chinese foods,” Lee told Eater Los Angeles. “I want to express my cooking with another kind of Chinese region. I want to be focused on Xi’an. It took me until this age to focus on this region. Now I want to share that discovery with other people, to show a whole other side of Chinese food.”
Bang Bang Noodles cooks at either 5040 York Blvd or 5537 N. Figueroa, in front of Kindness & Mischief Coffee. Aside from biang biang mian, the stand occasionally offers other Xi’an street food such as liangpi, the Los Angeles Times noted.
For now, Lee updates customers with a weekly schedule on Instagram. Closing times, however, are determined daily.
