Gene’s Chinese Flatbread Café
Boston, MA 02111
Chatty Gene Wu serves his Xi’an hand-pulled noodles in burbling chili oil deep in the heart of Downtown Crossing. Don’t let the teensy storefront dissuade; his spicy, tingly, garlic-rich broth is worth jostling for. Grab a plastic tray and slurp in house, or grab a flatbread sandwich to go. BEST DOWNTOWN LUNCH.
