    by travelpug Written Sep 14, 2007

    Over-the-bridge Noodle is the most famous noodle dish in Yunnan. It comes with a big bowl of hot broth, a plate of ingredients such as meat, chicken, veggetables, noodle and etc. You are supposed to put all the ingredients into the hot broth and let them warm up a bit. It is yummy. You can find this dish throughout Kunming, Dali and Lijiang.

    The Raven: Great Place To Hang Out

    by xaxa Updated Apr 30, 2007

    Nice ambience, good music but NOT loud. If you've been in China for a while, you'll notice that pubs have extremely loud music which make you impossible to have a decent conversation without shouting or bursting your ear out. Lots of tourists, extremely good spot to take an extra member for sharing that travel group expenses to Tibet. Good cocktails. They serve usual Dali and some western beers. Nice sofas, some are too big for you to sit. Lowpoints are; its cold near the door, place's really small it gets full easily, there are a snooker place upstairs that makes markedly noise. And there is a dog (Xiao Lu) having his own bed near the heater.

    Favorite Dish: Cheesecake. Sandwiches. They really are your emergency food.

    You should try the ru bing in Y unnan. They are made of goat cheese and are served with a mixture of hot peppers and salt (for dipping). Most Yunnanese restauratns have ru bing . They have a mild taste and are fun to try

    Favorite Dish: the ru bing!

    One Dragon (Yi Tiao Long): Good Resautrant between Kunming and Shilin

    by crewrower Updated Feb 5, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We stoped at this restaurant while on a bicycle ride from Kunming to Shilin (the stone forest). The restaurant is set in a traditional building and has a lot of character. Outside there are pagodas and other traditional architecture.

    There is no English menu and the staff do not speak English. However, they have many standard dishes and you might be able to order based on what other customers are having. Remember that it's ok in China to be curious and approach other peoples' tables to see what they are eating (within reason, of course). This is one of the few restaurants on the highway between Kunming and Shilin.

    Favorite Dish: The northern style dumplings are very good and fresh. They might not be authentic Yunnanese food, but good dumplings are to be enjoyed no matter where you are!

    Accross the bridge noodles, specialty of Kunming

    by XenoHumph Updated Mar 7, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The famous dish of Kunming is delicious. You are being brought a big bowl of near-boiling water with a film of oil on top and a big lump of rice noodles at the bottom(with some type of bouillon-like smell to it). On stacks of little side dishes you are given raw fish of various types, vegetables and spices that you dump in the bowl readily. Stir a bit, and after a few minutes when everything should be cooked, go fish in the bowl with your chopsticks and enjoy!!
    So why across the bridge? Well, the legend says that this wise man was living on an island on Dian lake linked to the shore by a long bridge. His wife brought him his meals from her kitchen on the shore. She found this system of an oil film atop the boiling water to keep the meal warm and the ingredients freshly cooked after crossing the bridge to serve her husband!

    Rice of course!

    by XenoHumph Updated Mar 7, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rice is the stapple food of Yunnan. Every meal will have it in huge quantities. It is generally white and sticky and therefore easy to handle with chopsticks when you are a clumpsy foreigner! The only exception is breakfast where noodles are served.

    A typical lunch or diner

    by XenoHumph Updated Mar 7, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I only had meals with our big group and it always happened the same way. We got split on several tables of 6 or 8 with a lazy susan in the middle (a rotating platform).

    At least 10 different dishes were promtly served from fish, meat, vegetables to tofu. You help yourself with your chopsticks from the different dishes and bring pieces on your bowl where you have put rice. Theses dishes included: entire grilled fishes, porc, chicken and sometimes duck dishes, vegetables (bamboo shoots, green beans, ...) and at times unidentifiable stuffs!

    Tea is generally served with that, sometimes Chinese sake, sometimes beer (the Yunnanese beers are absolutely tasteless).

    In general, everything was excellent!

    The Brothers Jiang (Jiangshi Kedi), Kunming: Best "Accross the Bridge Noodles" in Kunming

    by XenoHumph Updated Mar 3, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were told this restaurant is famous for its noodles and especially the "accross the bridge" ones. It was delicious! The restaurant has several rooms around a courtyard which is also full of tables. It is a very pleasant environment but was very crowded at lunch time.

    Anywhere: Breakfast in Yunnan: rice noodles!

    by XenoHumph Updated Jul 6, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The typical breakfast in Yunnan is a big bowl of rice noodles (top right or top left in picture) in which you add spices and sauces to your taste. There are also generally boiled eggs and little white tasteless breads (top left on picture). There are sometimes very nice pastries, some with coconut taste. No beverage (not even tea) is served with all this. There is plenty of fluids with the noodles anyway.
    Also notice the package of kleenex tissues (green, top right of picture) as this is very typical of what is given to you in place of napkin to every meal. You'd better not be messy while eating your slippery noodles with chop sticks (have fun!!!) as the tissues are really small and you get one per person!!!

    Cordyceps

    by victorwkf Written Dec 7, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cordyceps is a very famous and expensive Chinese medicine which is good for boosting vitality (perhaps natural Viagra). It is actually formed during the winter when a type of fungus invade the worms on the ground and causing it to die and dry up. Cordyceps is rare and can only be found in high altitude, which explains why they are expensive. In Yunnan, there is now a project which tries to cultivate Cordyceps and it is still at the experimental stage.

    You must try the tasty & interesting food @ Yunnan

    by victorwkf Written Dec 6, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you are in Yunnan, you must try the tasty and interesting food. They include the famous roast duck (Lan Lao Ya Restaurant) at the town of Yiliang near to Kunming. Other local dishes which are worth trying are the fried bamboo worms, fried bees, fermented beancurd, mushroom & fungus dishes, dog's meat, spicy chicken on a wok, the famous Yunnan noodle "Guo Qiao Mi Xian" which means "crossing the bridge noodles" (there is a story behind it).

    Yunnan MiXian (Rice Noodle)

    by vigi Written Sep 29, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: Yunnan MiXian is my everyday essential while travelling in Yunnan. One thing because it's famous, besides, it's cheap, easily accessible, and easy to order as a single traveller.

    They usually use chicken stock for the soup, then adding a lot of different spicies, onion, tofu, beans, pepper, etc. The taste really rich!

    Depending on where you eat and what type of MiXian you ordered. It can range from 2Yuan at home style shop to 100Yuan in top restaurant.

    Yunnan is famous for its ham so you should try it, and perhaps bring some home. You will also have chance to try some of Yunnan's tasty but simple food such as potatos, carrots, corns etc.
