[NYC - Manhattan Valley] Xian Famous Foods

Xian Famous Foods in Morningside Heights is a great spot to grab some cheap eats.

This is a classic NYC fast food restaurant. This location is slightly less busy than some of the other locations, which is great by me.

Everything is very fairly priced and so flavorful!

This is the tingly beef and the stewed oxtail noodles. They are both hand ripped noodles, which is great.

The meat is so tender and seasoned so well. It is such a comforting pile of noodles and I would definitely recommend checking it out now that we're heading into the winter months. My favorite was definitely the tingly beef noodles because I love the peppercorn spice and the literal tingles I get from eating it.

Just a note for you, this is a pretty messy meal, so make sure you grab enough napkins and maybe don't wear a white shirt. There are only seats for about 10 people,, if you plan to eat in during peak hours, you may also want to think of a plan b for seating.

The portions are very generous. I was quite surprised the first time I visited given the fact that these are all made to order, it's NYC, and the prices are less than $10 per menu item.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
