As the name suggests, this place specializes in Yunnan food, specifically something called crossing the bridge noodles - a one-dish meal that’s one of our single favorite things to eat in Sunset Park. It arrives disassembled at your table, with raw strips of beef or lamb, some vegetables, a heap of rice noodles, and a large bowl of extremely fragrant (and very hot) chicken broth to cook everything. If you don’t feel like consuming a large amount of soup, there’s also plenty of other stuff like rice cakes, broth-less noodles, and meat-filled dumplings in a sweet and sour broth (another great choice). This place is cash-only, and it’s ideal for a quick weeknight meal with a group.
