Roujiamo is a meat burger/sandwich snack that is similar to a kebab in appearance, which originates from Shanxi province and has gone viral nationwide. The major filling is pork braised in soup consisting of 20 spices and condiments for a few hours. 

肉夹馍的意思是肉类汉堡(meat burger)或肉类三明治(meat sandwich),是一种起源于陕西,而后席卷全中国的街边小吃。里面的肉大多是猪肉,用一种含20多种香料和调味料的汤汁炖数小时而成。

The literal meaning of Liangpi is cold skin, while it's actually irrelevant to animal production. Julia Ruskin from the New York Times ever described liangpi as "a dish of cold noodles in a sauce that hits every possible flavor category, sweet, tangy, savory, herbal, nutty and dozens of others"

凉皮的字面意思是冰冷的皮肤,但它其实与动物产品无关。《纽约时报》的朱莉娅-罗斯金将这道西安名吃形容为"可以用各种口味调拌的面条状冷餐,可以是甜的,臭的,香味宜人的,搭配草药、坚果以及其他配料"。

4. Smelly tofu 臭豆腐 (chòu dòu fu)
