Biang Biang, known for their store in Chinatown in the Sydney CBD, there’s now a store in Burwood too. With the proliferation of Asian eateries alongside the new high rise developments, Burwood could vy for the mantel of the Chinatown of the inner west. Do your tastebuds a favour and get yourself to Biang Biang for traditional Xi’an street food.
Biang Biang are noodles, notorious in the Shaanxi province of China, known for their thickness and length. They are in a bowl of soup, often topped with different flavours and toppings, including Chili. There are plenty of different choices.
We tried their famed fat noodles, pao mo (hot bread stew with beef) which were nice and soft and packed with flavour.
They also have their own version of a burger. We tried the roujiamo, a crispy pulled pork ‘burger’ – flat bread filled with shredded pork and chilli, served in a little paper bag. You can get plenty of other things too, like vermicelli, dumlings and meal packs.
They’re big on flavour and easy on the hip pocket, there’s plenty of “biang” for your buck.
