Yunnan’s “crossing the bridge” noodles are a featured attraction at this Greenwich Village restaurant named for the mountainous province’s literal translation. It’s the first independent venture from Liheng Geng, whose father, Side Geng, opened the pioneering Yun Nan Flavour Snack in 2006 (and later expanded to the larger Yun Nan Flavour Garden), both in Sunset Park. The younger Geng sources cuisine-defining ingredients like Zhaotong sauce for the tofu-pudding rice noodle and the mozzarella-like rushan cheese that adds texture to a rice-ball-and-rice-wine dessert. His short menu focuses on rice noodles (both dry and in soup), small plates like ghost chicken and “pigs on a stick,” and sweets, a few incorporating roses in jam or petal form.
