Another place where you can get some good crossing the bridge noodles, Western Yunnan is newer than Yun Nan Flavour Garden, and the soups have a few more ingredients. Cabbage, pork, pickled greens, and fish cake, for example. All of these things come out on a rectangular tray (along with beef and rice noodles) and your server mixes them into a heavy stone bowl of extremely hot broth. We slightly prefer the simpler, less cloudy broth at Yun Nan Flavour Garden, but this place is great for when you want something a bit richer, and there are some sweet, crispy pumpkin pancakes on the menu for when you’ve finished your soup.
