Your neighborhood noodle shop is like a scratch-off lottery ticket — easy and satisfying. Yet you’re still waiting on the big payoff.
Get lucky at M.Y. China, soft opening today in Westfield San Francisco Centre.
Expansive seating and outrageous attention to detail (an 1,800-pound bronze bell suspended over the bar, antique snuff bottles) make celebrity chef Martin Yan’s latest feel like the Las Vegas of Chinese food.
Spread your bets over a variety of regional cuisines (everything from hand-pulled noodles to dim sum and wok-made entrees). Win big when you order the kung pao Dungeness crab or the braised rib-eye noodle soup. Seafood fans strike it rich with the spicy scallop and shrimp dumplings wrapped in a spinach skin.
Prepare to be dazzled as chefs show off their skills from the exhibition-style kitchen. Hungry for more? Dinner service starts Monday.
That should hit the spot.
M.Y. China, Westfield San Francisco Centre, 845 Market Street, level four (415-580-3001 or mychinasf.com).
