South Of The Clouds is a casual spot in Greenwich Village that specializes in mixian - rice noodles from the Yunnan province of China. The small menu has five noodle options, which are served dry or in a rich chicken broth that’s been cooked for many hours, along with a few appetizers. We liked almost everything on the menu - especially the spicy bites of fried pork shoulder and the cold noodles with minced pork - and left very full for about $20 per person. This is one of the better new options for a quick and affordable lunch or dinner in Manhattan.
