Last Sunday we were heading up as normal to church in Toyosu when we slammed into a wall of traffic. Oops, we forgot it was silver week! (a set of national holidays that tons of people travel on) So we detoured to IKEA to do some built up shopping, and then on our way back via Yokohama we decided to try a Chinese restaurant called Xi'an, the capital of Shaanxi province which is also the name of the regional cuisine. This is the same cuisine as the restaurant in Narita that I've reviewed before: Tang Dynasty. Hoping we were finding a great "local" alternative, we decided to brave the difficulty of finding parking near Yokohama Station and locating this Xi'an.

The lunch menu is fairly limited, with several types of noodle dishes and a few teishokus. None of us felt like a noodle dish (unfortunately...they do the "shaved noodle" thing and it would have been fun to try it out). My son of course had eyes only for the fried rice, and though he thinks he doesn't like crab, since that was the only option he went for it. My wife and I tried a couple of the teishoku dishes picked mainly from their pictures.

So, not really a replacement for Tang Dynasty at Narita, but a lot closer.
