LONDON | The food from Murger Han hails from China’s Xi’an province, meaning you should expect intense flavours and generous portions of brothy noodles and meaty burger-like concoctions. The City Lane team recently moseyed on down to fill up on some authentic Chinese food as well as a few cheeky beers.

Now the first thing you need to know about Murger Han, before you do anything, is that the English translation of the menu is far from being accurate. They haven’t bothered to translate half of the drinks menu and the food section is slightly over-simplified. If you know anyone who can decipher the original mandarin menu for you, then bring them along or simply enjoy the fact that you’re not really going to know what you’re ordering. Or better yet, take our personal recommendations.

Choosing what to eat may be hard but once you get past the initial confusion, you’re in for a treat. We started off sharing some of their signature pork murgers, which mostly resemble a pork burger but without any of the fuss. The pork murgers are lightly flavoured, which is a bit of a disappointment because Xi’an food should punch you in the face with spice. It did the trick as a starter but do take advantage of the added condiments when ordering the murger burgers. Slather them with chilli oil and garlic.

The group of us then moved on to the main noodle fun stuff. We all opted for different dishes, starting off with the classic Biang Biang noodles with a tomato, chilli, lamb and eggs. I’ve been told this is traditionally what children eat but we had no shame in ordering it. It’s quite a light brothy soup with very thick noodles, almost like pasta. This one is for those who don’t do too well with spicy food. And the spinach version of this dish is also great for vegetarians.

But you come here to try the thick murger soup, traditionally the lamb option, which they describe as a stir fry in English. It is intensely flavoured and comes with extra chilli – even though you’d be crazy to add it. There isn’t a great deal of meat, but all the delicious tofu and noodles will certainly fill you up. This is my recommendation for anyone wanting to try some really authentic Xi’an food in London. Just prepare to sweat and pant heavily as you make your way through their mammoth sized bowls. You can also try their murger soup which has all the same flavouring, but is less intense and more manageable. These two meals are what makes this small restaurant a roaring success.

Murger Han may be one of those places which you need to know what to order before you arrive but it’s well worth it once you figure it out. Step out of your comfort zone and try something a little different in this small but busy noodle restaurant in the heart of London
