House of Xian Dumpling opened recently in the former Chef Jia space on Kearny and is in what must be considered in a "soft opening" phase, as some sections of its colorfully printed menu aren't being offered yet. Its menu is very wide-ranging, including Xi'an, Beijing, Shanghai, Shandong, Sichuan (and even some Cantonese) items that I could make out. I specifically asked about some Shanghai-style dim sum items and about skewers, none of which are yet available. They are up and running with noodles and dumplings (jiaozi) and I enjoyed a well-made beef tendon noodle soup which I blogged about if anyone is interested. I scanned the entire menu and posted it in a set on Flickr though, as I mentioned, not all of it is being offered as of yet.
