Forums > Food & Drink > Air quality, BK, MSG...1954

Actually Henry's Hamburgers was started in 1954 in Chicago and grew much faster than Mcdonalds or Burger King for many years. I remember them well and the burgers were very inexpensive and better than the competition. For some reason all but 1 location closed very quickly in the early 70's.

I have not eaten at BK and have no plans to but i would much rather be classified as trailer trash than run in the circles with a few of the food snobs that post here.

Forums > Living in Kunming > global warming

I can remember far before Al Gore made his infamous global warming movie, some scientists were expressing concern that we might be entering a pattern of changing weather patterns. For a long time few were in agreement as what the long term outlook would be, but the scientists that predicted global warming always said that not all parts of the world would see record heat, but that the warming of the oceans would change weather patterns and some could also see record cold periods. They also predicted larger storms, possibly major melting of the ice caps which could lead to coastal flooding. Now most of the scientific community agrees major changes are happening and will continue to happen.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Why do miserable foreigners remain in China?

I assume we are all grown ups. If someone is constantly complaining ask them to stop, if that does not help maybe it is then time to leave and find other social contacts or friends in the future. Then you do not need to start a forum so you can complain about the complainers.

New website design should have been an improvement over old, but really miss old one. Why no edit button when posting in forum?

I ride the bus daily and all the new buses seem to be Hybrid, many of them propane fueled. What i do not understand is how Yunnan prison in the north hills behind the police academy can burn an incinerator every morning spewing out the thickest blackest foul smelling smoke i have ever seen or smelled. When the wind is in the wrong direction that smokes drifts into a housing complex that houses mostly retired and present police officers.

@Alien if you cannot stop people from driving there cars 1-2 blocks to the store to buy a carton of milk how are you going to stop people from flying. Airlines are big business and china is spending big money on new airports so i do not see airline travel slowing anytime soon. I walk, ride my bike for groceries and take bus from North to Nanya shopping mall for work, and only take car as a last resort, but i will not stop flying to USA once a year to see my family.

Friend was given aerosol last year for bad bruise on leg and had allergic reaction to it. Ended up with bad rash and open sores. Doctor gave him something which was no help. Cleared up with hydrocortisone cream i gave him.



Metro has many things i cannot find other places, but i still find it a frustrating place to shop sometimes. Seem to frequently be out of things. For example their was very little fresh meat to choose from and actually they were out of many things and i was their just after lunch. They had no loaves of toasting bread and could not tell my wife when they would be getting more in. In looking at the fresh date on Hormel ham it had expired in September. However for first time i was able to shop all the aisles. Not filled with merchandise to be stocked or fork lifts.


Ate lunch today. Server was attentive. Food was good but a little slow in coming. Looking forward to eating dinner some evening and trying salad bar i have heard so much about.


To all those expecting an authentic Irish Pub come on we are after all living in China. I have eaten there several times and the burger is still the best in Kunming in my opinion. Staff is friendly and attentive to your needs. Place is not perfect but what is in CHina. Owners have been wonderful in opening up early for special events like the US Super Bowl.


Went for Pizza special tonight. Had the Barbeque chicken and it was very good. Also enjoyed an exceptionally large order of French Fries. Everything was good tonight and owners where not there.


Wonderful place. Evening price is 88rmb which includes large salad buffet and they bring out skewers of the best beef i have had in China, also chicken, pork, sausages, goose, corn on cob to your table. They seem to slow down after 8 but before that constantly waiters bringing fresh meat and cut it onto your plate. Have eaten there 5 times in past 2 months and has always been excellent food and even better have never left with any stomach ills.
