面 originally means face, and by association, side, so 后面 just means back+side=behind. Nowadays 面 is also used as the simplified form of 麵, which means flour/noodles. With Chinese writing, especially modern/simplified Chinese, you'll have to get used to many characters having multiple meanings.
Haha, yes, simplified Chinese has amplified cognitive complixity! Funny side effect. 麵 means precisely "wheat product made from fermentation"+ "a word sounding Mian 面". They are not necessarily noodles, but include bread because it is also wheat product by fermentation. More specificly, bread is called 麺麭 in Chinese.
