Best New-School Chinese Food 

Xi An Gourmet

A centuries-old cuisine is anything but "new," but until recently there's been a dearth of kitchens in San Francisco highlighting the Chinese region of Xi'an, with spicy, strident flavors that lean towards noodles over rice. Xi An Gourmet in the Inner Richmond is a no-frills affair (the "menu" consists of neon papers taped to the wall, each with the name of a dish on it) but the silky mapo tofu with fish and the exquisite handmade noodles alone should put it on every adventurer's radar. Geary Boulevard is an uninterrupted string of Cantonese no longer.
