Yes, unfortunately French cafe has closed after 21 years. They were one of the earliest of it’s kind in Kunming and they had a great run and we will miss them. Just before they closed we at Salvador’s decided to take it over to keep the spirit going and breathe new life into it with our team. Their staff will be staying on with us as well. We hope to be open in early December. Long live French Cafe!
When you get the weird jumbled characters instead of Chinese sometimes it can be fixed with a bit of software called Aegisub. You open the faulty subtitle file with Aegisub and if you can see Chinese characters there then you export the file as a new .ass (for some reason) file and that can regularly clear up the problem, but not always.

We recently found this hotpot restaurant on accident and like it very much! The staff and boss are very friendly and the service is very good and the place is clean. The food is also delicious and the boss seems very knowledgeable about how to make great hotpot and he has spent a lot of time adjusting the recipes to make them pretty special. The pots are Chongqing style with a big one on the outside and a small one in the middle which makes it also convenient for vegetarians to eat here as they have a tomato soup and a mushroom soup that you can have in a separate part of the pot. Ask the boss for recommendations at the spice bar if you find the dipping sauce hard to get right. They also do delivery. This is our new favorite hotpot restaurant!
I forgot about this little place for many years, but the other day I was in the mood for hotpot and decided to take a look at the menu. Being vegetarian I was under the impression that they wouldn't have much in the way of veggie options but to my delight they have a veggie set meal and many good options which you can order individually. I feel silly for not having checked earlier. Of course much of the menu has meat options and you can get the split hotpot bowl so everyone can have what they want. I'll definitely be adding this into the rotation. Nice little option right in Wen Hua Xiang.
Love this place. One of the best hidden gems in Kunming. The food is all clean and locally sourced and made with creativity and care. The building is interesting and if weather is good sitting outside is awesome. The homemade tofu skin is to die for as well as most of the other dishes on the menu. They also have a lot of very interesting seasonal specials that keep things interesting. Word on the street is that they aren't doing super well these days though. I hope this old favorite gets a new wave of love!
I love this place! I found it on Baidu maps last October and have been going quite regularly since then and have seen marked improvement in my archery skill. It's so nice to have a new cool thing like this to do in Kunming, and so conveniently located! (For me anyway) It is worth noting that in order to practice there you will need to take a class with the owner to get you familiar with the gear, technique and safety and that this instruction is only available in Chinese. Without this initial class he won't let you practice there unless you can somehow prove that you are already a skilled archer so you'll want to go with a friend that speaks good Chinese if you aren't fluent. 50 kuai an hour for non-members, 30 kuai for members. Membership requires putting some money in an account there, think it's around 200 kuai. The initial class is included in the hourly rate. There are an assortment of different difficulty levels of bows so beginners, kids, and people with lower strength levels can get in on the fun too. Great place for a date! Rule #1 Never, ever dry-fire a bow without an arrow in it!
Nice place, a little hard to find the first time but just give a call and they'll help you find it. Really enjoy the quiet locale and the pizza is really good. Great job!
