Tangyun Qinfeng (唐韵秦风) - A Taste of Shaanxi Cuisine

We went to check out this local restaurant (with three branches in Shanghai) on Monday night.  TangyunQingFeng specializes in Xian food - it adheres to tradition so much that it does not even offer rice on the menu.  Northern Chinese cuisine is all about noodles and dumplings - what we call "flour based foods" in my family.

It was incredibly cheap, warm, filling and tasty.

Lamb soup with cilantro, vermicelli and wood ear mushroom: 
  Pickled cabbage:
 Roujiamo - minced beef in a toasted bun:
 Youpomian - oil and chili splashed over hand pulled noodles (my favorite!)

 This is how it looked after you mixed it up.  The noodles were an amazing thickness and consistency.
