Forums > Living in Kunming > French Cafe

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!

Forums > Living in Kunming > Good site for downloading Chinese subtitles?

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.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Is Salvador's closed today?

Hey hey, just a reminder that Salvador's is closed today and will be closed for the next 3ish days for renovations. We should be open on the 2nd or 3rd. Super sorry for any inconvenience. Salvador's loft will remain open and Meituan deliveries will continue as normal though. Also when we re-open our business hours will change slightly from 9am until 11pm with orders ending at 10:30pm. 30 mins earlier than before. Thanks!!

Can't use a debit card, for Zuche it had to be a credit card. Not sure if it is still possible for foreigners to get one as it seems like things have changed a little but I got mine from Bank of Communication a few years ago. Definitely worth a try.

In my experience the main problem I ran into besides having the driver's license for renting a car from someone like zuche was needing a Chinese credit card for the deposit. There didn't seem to be a way around it. Eventually I got a credit card and it was fine.

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!
