Yeah sure, environmentalists are closet anti-semites who want to impose a global dictatorship by establishing knitting circles in California. And there was me thinking they were reptiles from outer space. Thanks for putting me straight.



Went in for a coffee and asked for a ham sandwich. The server made some excuse about the kitchen being busy. Odd, since I was the only customer. He finally agreed to "ask the kitchen". When the sandwich finally came it was made with crappy sliced bread and had cheese added. It was like a ham and cheese toastie that hadn't been toasted. This in a place where they bake their own baguettes. Very poor show.


Can't get a friendlier place than this. Lot's of beers to choose from, some a little pricy, but there's always the fallback of Lao. Excellent.


The French Cafe is probably the oldest Western eatery in Kunming. Unfortunately, it has complacency written all over it and is badly in need of a makeover. The service varies from indifferent to unfriendly. Good wine and coffee is the minimum you'd expect from a place that bills itself as French but you'll struggle to find either here. There's not much that's French on the menu apart from the croque monsieur. It's only saving grace is that the bread is the best in Kunming, but that's not saying much.


I know being grungy is part of the appeal of this place but, how much trouble would it be to fix the toilet doors?


The Sunday special deal (roast beef and roast lamb) was the best Western food I've eaten in China in ten years here. Top notch. Top marks.
