Forums > Food & Drink > Best Pizza in Kunming

The durian (Thai imported) pizza I recommended on the 3rd post of this thread is now 50% off.

Durian-packed 8 inch pizza just 24.99 yuan inside Q+Life Supermarket at TKP Shopping Mall. Payment via Q+Life WeChat mini program (同德店).

@Ishmael, rickshaw also still works. You may find two of them on standby for hire in the Old Street alleyway.

Philou is correct.

Or simply use your WeChat and scan the QR Code image below:


You will be linked to the official mini-program called 乘车码 (chengchema).

It can pay fares for both MRT and buses for most cities in China (select cities top left corner). Not just for Kunming's transportation systems.

After authorizing payment synchronization to your WeChat Pay. Commuting subway or bus via smartphone becomes easy. No more fumbling for cash or coins while people push and grunt behind you.

For MRT/subway:

Choose left tab "地铁" (ditie). QR Code will display, and refreshed periodically. Scan at turnstile.

For buses:

At the top select the right tab labeled "公交" (gongjiao). QR Code will appear to be scanned (sensor located at bottom of machine) when embarking. At which point an automated voice will say "success" in Chinese "成功" (chengong).

"Pin to desktop" (top right corner option) for quick access.

I suggest GoKunming embed this QR Code image somewhere on this website for the convenience of commuting readers.

Some say the world is your oyster. That world, which I with sword will open, is also a classroom. Even a cake shop ad. And all things, animate or inanimate, are your teachers. Especially students who manage to burn souffles without turning on the oven.

JanJal is living the good life. Munching on donuts while watching the Premiere League. All the while providing for family at home. As mentioned in the fourth paragraph of this article, Igor's delivers to your door. Just in time for your afternoon sugar fix.

Glad you disembarked safely China Biz. The sound of 乡村 definitely has more rustic appeal. Association of natural wholesomeness. While 农村 is often used disparagingly by Chinese urbanites.

Awaiting the belated Michelin Michael2015 review.

Four random positive endorsements for the chef. Must be a popular, equanimous guy. So I take back my tongue in cheek hygienic comment. The featured baguette was obviously protected in paper wrapper.

Chef Igor probably burns the souffles because he's happily married to his passion. Unlike a few forumites who constantly forget to turn on the oven. (Subtle nod to late and great Audrey Hepburn)

Almost seems like he is one of the few owners who have not been indoctrinated by YFBC. Rather, the lone wolf buries himself in the space-time of zen, the gaps within paton layers of pate brisee.

Speaking of which, that scrumptious croissant also caught my eye....

mastering humidity in maintaining buttery flakiness is an art for a patisserie. Not too dry, not too humid. Despite the relative dryness of Kunming, most aforementioned bakeries in town would botch puff pastry, or the French call it pâte feuilletée.
