My mom took me to Biang for lunch today. Biang is an offshoot of Xi’an Famous Foods, which is known for their spicy lamb and noodle dishes. Biang has similar flavors and spices but with a more contemporary feel.
On the second day, a group of us met up at AMU Plaza in Hakata Station around 9:00AM.

These stations reminded me of the food section of Shirokiya in Honolulu. That morning I just wanted pastries so I went to the coffee shop, selected a brioche and a pastry with chicken inside and ordered a black coffee. (more…)
