Great Yunnan cuisine Jul 06, 2011
This is a great restaurant for Yunnan's cuisine of the Dai minority. The restaurant is located in Haidian District, only a few blocks away from MinZhu DaXue (Central University for Nationalities).

There are two floors, and unless requested otherwise, they will seat you at the top floor.

The food is great. Their specialty is the Pineapple rice (sticky sweet rice steamed in pineapple shell, to seal in the taste of pineapple), a Yunnan dish. Other good dishes to go along with the rice include potato balls, fish in lemongrass, spicy tofu, etc. Pretty much everything on the menu is tasty, and a full meal with several main dishes and several side dishes will only end up costing you about 100 Yuan.

Several negatives: I noticed was that the tables and chairs were pretty old, and the place wasn't all that clean. The door is kept open a lot of the time, and on a hot summer day, this can attract flies. Also, depending on what you order and how busy the place is, you might have to wait up to 30 minutes for your food to come.

Just do what I always do when I can't read Chinese, look at the pictures and if it looks good, order it (you don't even have to know how to say it, just point to the picture) :) But I think the English names and descriptions are also on the menu.
