Best Foods is a Chinese restaurant in Irvine. It’s one of those great restaurants with dishes for mainstream tastes (a whole chow mein menu, a small dim sum selection, barbecue skewers), a buffet for the adventurous (one dish one time looked like tripe in chile sauce—YUM...), badly translated dishes that undersell their worth (“Hunan Spicy Sour Ricenoodle” is a spectacular soup of beef, burdock, four types of chiles and a bunch of other veggies—see you in spring, pho!), and a whole bunch of items in Chinese script the rest of us wasichu can’t understand. But its most exciting feature are dishes from Xi’An, the capital of Shaanxi Province—a foodways well-known in the San Gabriel Valley but just getting attention here.
