M.Y. China’s master noodle puller Yong Dong Wu.
Martin Yan’s latest restaurant project is the new darling of Westfield San Francisco Centre. Without walls, the front spills out under the dome of the mall almost like sidewalk seating. The menu leans toward the traditional from regions all over China, including classics such as soup (or, as the restaurant calls them, “juicy”) dumplings and salt-and-pepper crab. Yes, it’s touristy, but it also makes a great stop before a movie. The theater is just an escalator ride away.
