    N/A - family run street stall: Street Markets - Best Dumplings

    by AndreaPrice Updated Apr 1, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of my favourite & cheapest eating place

    Many travellers are a little sceptical about eating from street stalls, but I think eating from this one is very safe and certainly a must do. I am not sure of the name if the stall or even if it has one - basically it is located on the street beside the 99 supermarket and the stalls are set up on the road after about 7pm. This lady along with her husband and son makes "the best" dumplings (jaozi) and noodles. They are 2.5 yuan each although they often charge foreigners 3 or 4 yuan. The dumplins come in a little bamboo steamer, they are usually steaming away already so can be eaten straight away. If you get the noodles and dont want msg added - just say "mayo wayjing". She is use to foreigners! The lady is very sweet, and not at all agressive like some others. Sit down at the little tables and enjoy the experience.

    Favorite Dish: The dumplings or the flour noodles which they make in front of you (they shave the noodles into the hot pot) and top it with a spicy heat sauce. Sooo good. Many a nights I stopped hear on my way home or should I say in the early hours of the morning.

    Blue lotus: Good Chinese food

    by sunshinee Updated Nov 15, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were thinking to have a snack so we ordered onion ring and steamed dumplings. It was so yummy and the amount wasn't small and we were so full after this. This meal was only less than 30yuan including the local beer 7yuan only!!

    The meal

    The food in this restaurant was really special. It seemed a sort of fusion between Chinese and European food. We ordered egglant which was coated in a nice batter and a chicken dish which was also very nice.

    Would recommend this restaurant as being above the ordinary in terms of its food.

    Favorite Dish: the eggplant

    In the photo shown here, I'm enjoying a good breakfast at the Blue Bird Cafe, located in the heart of West Street in Yangshuo... Blue Bird Cafe is one of many cafes which offer approximately the same selection of foods, typically omelettes, pancakes and the like... This place had very good omelettes... They also serve various alcoholic drinks if you want to drop by later in the evening...

    Cafe Under the Moon: Cafe Under the Moon

    by Guantanamera Updated Jan 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cafe Under the Moon, located on West Street in Yangshuo Town, serves some very good omelettes for breakfast, loaded with meat and vegetables... When order fresh juice, be sure to ask if it's all 100 percent juice or if they put water in it... Then they will bring you 100 percent juice... But if you don't ask, they will probably mix water in with the juice, and most restaurants in Yangshuo follow this same scheme...

    of Dumplings!: Dynasty...

    Dumpling Dynasty Sign
    1 more image

    Dynasty of Dumplings provides northern-style dumplings to Yangshuo in a small but pleasant restaurant just off the main drag. The wooden exterior opens to a warm, family environment, and the TV will probably be on. They have a good selection of dumplings, many of which I believe are served 12 per order, plus many other items. Beer and other drinks are reasonably priced.

    Favorite Dish: We had the pork and the lamb dumplings. As good as Harbin's!

    There are three sauces to deal with- one is soy sauce, the second is vinegar, I believe, and the third is the pot of crushed chili peppers. Mix those for dipping, to taste, in the provided plate.

    Kelly's cafe: A great place to eat in Yangshuo

    by dirk78 Written Aug 19, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you don't wanna eat on crowded and noicy west street in Yangshuo. Kelly's cafe is a great place to go. Just at the end of Guihua road, which runs parallel to west street, Kelly offers quality and inexpensive western and chinese food. You have a nice terrace to sit outside and enjoy to evening.

    Meiyou Cafe: don't eat at Meiyou Cafe

    by anilegna Written Oct 7, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    went to Meiyou Cafe twice, 1st time before the crowds arrived for the Oct 1st golden week holiday. It was about 12 noon and relatively quiet. Meiyou cafe had one table set up outside the restaurant, with other tables turned upside down. The weather was beautiful and I wanted to sit outside, so I asked the waiter (in Mandarin Chinese) for a table outside, pointing at the 4 wooden tables turned upside down. Think he was being really lazy coz he said that it was against the law for people to sit outside the restaurant, when I asked him why it was ok for this American couple to sit outside, he said because they are white, so I started arguing with him, telling him I'm American and I speak English, but why would he be racially prejudiced against his own? honestly, don't think it was a race issue here, he was just being damn lazy,... so I left.

    2 days later I was back, same place, all 5 tables set up outdoor, this time I was looking at their sign advertising breakfast, this was 11:30 a.m., I asked for toast & etc., the waitress (different person this time) told me can't you see we are really busy (I was sitting at 1 of the 5 tables set up outside, no one was sitting inside), can you order something else?

    came here coz Lonely Planet recommended this place "Meiyou cafe promised don't have bad service" and is delivered seemingly forever.

    guess the restaurant got too popular for their own good, there are plenty of other good restaurants in Yangshuo, avoid this one

    Favorite Dish: none, it sucks

    Suzanna`s cafe. November, 2006

    All the places we ate at offered great food!!!
    Such a joy after tasteless Beijing crap.

    The best restaurants are all located in one area. We loved eating at 'Suzanna`s', 'Twin Peakes Cafe' and a couple of others, next door.

    BREAKFAST: Loved 'Kelly`s Cafe' next to our hotel. Nothing beats that freshly-squeezed tangerine juice, bowl of fruits (melon, water melon, apples and bananas) and Omelette set with bacon and toasts. All for just 22RMB ($2.75)!!!

    Favorite Dish: BEER FISH. Yammy!!!

    The meal

    This restaurant was recommended by one of the teachers at the local school and was well worth it.
    It serves western as well as Chinese food. (Veggie Burgers,burrito, pizza, milkshakes and sichuan food) Another customer who was in the restaurant as us raved about his chicken and nuts meal. We ordered eggplant and another chicken dish which was very good.

    The restaurant also offers free internet use. When we went in they were playing 70s western music!

    Beer Fish - a regional specialty!

    beer fish in Yangshuo

    Try some BEER FISH in Yangshuo, it is supposed to be the Pride of this Region! And yes it is delicious! But the Chinese who accompanied me went to the kitchen not only to choose the right fish but also stayed with the cook to make sure that the chosen fish is really on our plates. I guess they know how things run.
    By the way be carefull with the propane gas cookers on the tables. Suddenly the whole crowd got excited and ran out of the restaurant, but I did not understand what they were shouting. Anyway in these moments run with the herd! Later I found out that one propane gas hose ripped of, but they fixed it before something bad could happen and we could go on with the delicious meal.

    Le Votre Cafe: Le Votre Cafe Interior

    by Guantanamera Updated Jan 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Le Votre Cafe has al fresco dining available but also has an interestingly decorated interior as well, shown in this photo... It includes an almost endless panorama of Buddhas statues, eclectically mixed in with gigantic wall portraits of Chairman Mao Zedong and Premier Zhou Enlai, as well as some traditional French advertisement posters from around the early 20th century...

    Xiujuan with a pina colada at Le Votre

    Le Votre Cafe is the most famous French restaurant in Yangshuo, with an array of traditional French culinary options available for the gastronome... They also have some very good Italian pizzas on hand, and if you ask, they'll bring you some olive oil to drizzle on top...! Only one complaint about this place: there creme brulee was the worst I've had anywhere in the world; it seemed they didn't know what the words meant because the sugar on top wasn't even burnt, it was just sprinkled on top... Maybe their blowtorch wasn't working that night?? Also, the consistency was like rubber...
