This steam-pot restaurant serves Yunnan hot pots and other foods. With six branches in Kunming, we went to one but three years old; some are more than three times that age. We are treated to white tea in a glass, and a papaya liquor we deem unbelievably good.
The Dian-style food served here are all dishes typical of the Yunnan Province, the most famous of which is their well known Steam-pot Chicken. They cook it a long time in a small Yunnan pot, its final flavor is intense.
We are delighted with their well-known Organic Assorted Vegetables; they come magnificently displayed on a glass and silver swan. Enjoy them we do, and check out the other dishes they served us written to the left in Chinese.
We also enjoy the Sliced Roast Duck, Yiliang-style, the Steamed Flat Fish with Jizong, a mushroom that tastes like chicken. Plain Daikon served to us as one in our party says they have a headache; this vegetable said to cure it. We have Mugu, a mushroom dish with peppers and green-head mushrooms, Sliced Roast Duck Yiliang-style served on a slice of kiwi that is atop of a slice of white bread, and Sung Rong Pie, a wild mushroom and beef pie.
In addition, we have Pine Mushrooms with Meat, Cow's Liver and Boletus Mushrooms with Scallops, Sauteed Chinese Cabbage in Garlic Sauce, Stir-fried Gumbo, and Braised Beef with Er Kuai. Every dish looks lovely, tastes even better, and each one is a Yunnanese treat.
In the next issue, articles about the Kunming and the Yunnan Dai and Bai minorities, and several of their restaurants should be features including a Dai one in Kunming, a few Bai ones, and Bai meals in homes and elsewhere in Yunnan.
