We went to Xi’an Famous Foods on April 9th- the food was great and reminded me of my trips to Xian - Jason Wang the 25 year old co owner of the popular and growing chain. Jason was one of the panelists at the Zoomdojo and Columbia GCC Innovate China conference young entrepeneurs panel. The food is authentic taste and a welcome break from generic Chinese food - highlighting how unique and good food can be and a nod to the historic intersection of many cultures that travelled through so many parts of china - Silk Road was a culinary road too! I look forward to more visits to the other restaurants. And to continuing the exchanges and collaborations that take me to new comfort zones and comfort foods with GCC and with young entrepreneurs - the conversations will continue on!
