More Yunnan in the City, With Tribeca’s Lotus Blue

Yu Nan Flavor Snack has been pretty much your only Yunnan option till now.

The sour-and-spicy, sometimes tropical, flavor profile of China's Yunnan province is hard for us to resist; trouble is, the only reliable source we know of is Yu Nan Flavor Snack in Sunset Park. No longer: Forgive us for being slow on the uptake, but Tribeca Citizen recently profiled a newcomer in that hood, Lotus Blue, which opened at 110 Reade Street. Between that and the Yunnan restaurant opening on Clinton Street, things are looking up for this Southwest Chinese cuisine. [Tribeca Citizen]
