Murger Han does indeed serve some pretty great murger - a traditional Chinese snack involving slow cooked meat in a flat bread - but they also serve a lot of other things. There are clay pot dishes, dumplings, soup, and some excellent biang biang noodles that you should definitely get involved in. This place is perfect for a laidback dinner with a couple friends, a speedy lunch, or to swing-by mid-afternoon for some top Xi’anese dishes.
