MELBOURNE | Shaanxi-Style Restaurant gives away the origins of the food it serves in the name, but to most people, including us when we first found out about the restaurant, the question is – where is Shaanxi? Shaanxi is a province in North West China, its capital Xi’an being one of China’s oldest cities, home to China’s famous Teracotta Warriors, and the starting points of the historic Silk Road.

The food of Shaanxi province is quite different to what most Westerners think of when they think of Chinese food. It features many pork and lamb/mutton dishes, with strong flavours and lots of salt, garlic, and onion also characteristic of the cuisine.

Shaanxi-Style Restaurant features a full array of dishes from the province, with authentic flavours that haven’t been dialed back for Western palates. Try the roujiamo, a flatbread filled meat sandwich. The pork option, filled with tender, slow stewed meat, is particularly delicious. Another highlight are the short stir-fried house-made noodles served with cumin and thin strips of beef. The spice profile is somewhat a fusion of Asian and Middle Eastern flavours and utterly delicious. Biang Biang noodles, thick and chewy ‘belt’ noodles, are another specialty of the restaurant.

As for the decor, Shaanxi-Style Restaurant is no nonsense – it’s a simple space with plastic tables and wooden chairs, and an assortment of Chinese posters and ads on the white walls, with a few decorations here and there. You’re not coming here for the decor or because it’s on trend, you’re coming here because you want to try food that excites, tastes great, and expands your ideas of what Chinese food is.
