Not everyone eats lamb, we concede, but at Shaanxi Gourmet, a smallish new place specializing in the fiery cuisine of northwest China, it’s as much a religion as it is a menu option. The brothy, spicy lamb noodle soup has thin shards of meat bobbing to the top of a rich soup that is classic málà, possessed by mouth-numbing Szechuan hot pepper that characterizes most dishes from this region. The noodles are thick strands of wheat, rather like Japanese udon, and the dish is rounded out by lots of boiled cabbage.
