What? Chinese restaurant Yunnan Kitchen in New York
Why? While Chinese dishes seem to have taken over many NYC restaurant menus (steamed buns, pig ears…), Yunnan Kitchen presents a refreshing different view of the Chinese kitchen. In this stylish restaurant in New York’s Lower East Side they focus on the light and fresh cuisine of the Yunnan region. The dishes are perfect to share and incorporate original ingredients you probably never tasted before. A salad with Chrysanthemum and sesame dressing for instance, or scrambled eggs with jasmine flowers.
Must-try? I can highly recommend the mushroom rice cakes and the spicy tofu ribbons with mint.
