Anybody had any exceptional non-Western dining experiences in Kunming lately? I have some old standards, but feel like some of the places I've been going for years are starting to get boring or slipping in quality.
Yeah, whatever that shop on Beimen Jie is, I've had work done on my touring bike there in the last six months or so and they did a good job. Not cheap by local standards, but quite reasonable by international standards.
I think he must mean 2GB memory (RAM) as opposed to storage? WeChat is a bit of a hog on both the memory and storage fronts, but as long as you're not trying to use navigation, wechat, and email at the same time, I reckon you'll be fine. I have a Galaxy S9, still only has 4GB RAM and is very snappy for all sorts of apps.
I've been taking boxing classes with Kasey, who is an excellent teacher. The studio is no-frills, but they have a wide range of yoga, self defense and other classes. And some of the teachers even donate the class fees to charity. Glad to have Spring City Yoga Collective as part of the community in Kunming.
Stopped in today while out on a motorbike ride. Nice place to chill out away from the hustle and bustle of town. Can swim in the reservoir nearby (although technically prohibited, nobody seems to care). Great pizza. Good coffee. Reasonable price. As previous reviewer mentioned, if you're going there particularly, it might be worth calling and double checking they're open and arranging for food. Owners speak English.
A welcome addition to the Western choices in Kunming! Good bread, world-class pastry art, a small but solid food menu. Would suggest a little more flavor in the tomato pasta, and eggs benedict would be even better if on an English muffin instead of bread.
A nice day out. I missed the second exhibition. The third exhibition, currently ongoing, is contemporary photos of the Kunming-Haiphong railway, mostly the Chinese side. I thought it was quite good. It's not a huge space, but the 1903 commercial complex has some decent dining options (including the museum cafe itself which has some expensive but very good single origin coffees).
