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.

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.
