With locations in Westwood, Arcadia, USC, and Irvine, Qin West has built a mini SoCal empire serving rich, hearty noodle soups. We like the beef shank and rice noodle-filled Guilin soup a lot, but on rainy days, the thick handmade noodles in the liang pi warm our souls the quickest. Call (213) 687-1063 for pick-up.
