Yang Gui Fei Xi'an Restaurant (羊贵妃西安美食)

I went here awhile ago with some Chinese friends, including one from Xian.

Location: 18 Smith Street Singapore (food street in Chinatown)

Website: pictures and more pictures

Price: average but unsure about specific items because we split bill and our friend had a membership card. To give a rough idea - altogether ~$15 per person including drinks


羊肉泡馍 (Mutton soup with bread) - a classic Xi'an dish. A delicious lamb soup with bits of broken bread. I haven't had it since I was 5 so I'm not sure how this matches up to the ones in China but it was tasty, although quite salty and had a thick layer of oil. But I think it was worth the calories/cholesterol haha.

Satay sticks - the picture shows potato and green chilli satays, I think we also had chicken and lamb. Great flavouring, nice and hot, meat was tender. Only thing was that this was really salty, and probably high in MSG.

Cold chilli noodles - I found these noodles a tad bland but my friend loved this dish and said it was his favourite out of everything we had that night. 

酸梅汁 (plum drink) - lovely cold mildly sweet and sour drink on a hot day. The drink was particularly memorable because it went really well with the food!

Other: good to see that there are restaurants in Singapore that sell authentic Chinese food!

Rating: 4/5 delicious and unique range of dishes. But quite salty so be prepared to drink lots of water for the rest of the evening!
