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.

The Commodore is bad. Bad because merely looking at the food here will jack up your cholesterol thirty points, and worse because everything is so good that you’ll crave it all the time.

Macao Trading Co.
"Look for the red lantern," instructs the Macao Trading Co. website. This is how you will know you have reached your destination - the Portuguese colony of Macao circa 1952, "a fugitive's heaven from which there is no turning back." Awesome. We're apparently having dinner at Universal Studios tonight.
Shanghai 21 is a great place to have a group dinner in Chinatown (but you might have to wait in line for it).
