Xi’An Rougamo #3 is located in Belmont, MA and was a pleasant pandemic find which we are continuing to enjoy via delivery (Grubhub, but they’ve recently updated their Web site for online ordering). They offer a variety of rougamo (often compared to a burger from what I’ve read and seen on travel shows, but seems to be stir fried things in a split flat bread). The flatbread from Xi’An Rougamo has a delightful, crispy lacy quality to it that I love. My favorite is the shredded potato one (seems to be potatoes and long horn peppers), but I have enjoyed the cumin lamb one as well. They also do a well prepared, five spice spiked pork and cabbage dumpling (steamed). You can also get this dumpling in a hot and sour soup (nicely balanced flavors, no corn starch thickening).
There are all kinds of noodles, too. I have had the cold lian pi, both in their chilli sauce, as well as their sesame dressed one. There are nice puffs of wheat gluten in there, along with crunchy vegetables. A side order of cucumber and wood ear was enjoyable as well, dressed in vinegar and garlic. Wontons in spicy sauce (sesame based) have been consistently tasty and have traveled well in delivery.
The biang biang noodles also travel fairly well. BF favors the cumin beef ones, which I like too. My favorite to get is the simply named “hand pulled biang biang noodles with pork” which seemed to also have a little egg and tomato tossed in with them as well. You can get the egg and tomato on its own with noodles too, which I thought was good. I felt the tomatoes had a nice savory quality and held up with the dense noodles. Dan dan noodles had a great chew on the occasions I have ordered them, if that is your thing. A spiced egg can be added to most dishes for an extra $1.25.
The upgraded ordering site has seafood dishes that I’ve not seen on their GrubHub menu before, so I can’t speak to those.
I don’t have pictures of everything we’ve ordered there, but here are a couple (the cumin beef noodles and noodles with pork) from our last delivery.
