Jason Wang of Xi'an Famous Foods - Young Guns Nominee 2013

Worldly eater and Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmern calls New York mini-chain Xi'an Famous Foods the "ultimate immigrant story." David Shi, the father of Eater Young Guns semi-finalist Jason Wang opened a hole in the wall food stall at the Golden Mall in Flushing, Queens almost ten years ago. After Wang graduated college, he saw potential in the popularity of the shop, which served authentic, non-Americanized, hyper delicious Chinese food, and spent the last four years stabilizing and expanding the business, bringing it to a larger audience.
