I pretty much always have problems... the international speeds suck and it seems like sites get newly blocked every minute. Oh well, if China wants to wallow in the 1990s from an internet perspective, then that's it's problem.
For 'Yunnan Cuisine,' whatever exactly that is, two obvious choice are Laofangzi and 1910 (both in the gokunming listings). Laofangzi's chao erkuai is really tasty and the atmosphere (courtyard house) is also nice. 1910 is in a building that was reputedly once a station on the Kunming to Hanoi rail line and is decorated in a really unusual but nice style and has an outdoor patio with seating. They seem to specialize in cold poultry and pork dishes, as well as being famous for their youtiao and zhou dish. But they also have fresh and high-quality vegetables. Anyone have a place they like better?
That's what you get for trying to use social networking to stay in touch with friends and family while you're a guest in this esteemed country. You don't need your friends back home. You have plenty of friends here. That's why they call us 'foreign friends.'
I can't possibly believe all of these five star reviews are genuine.
First of all, what kind of "café" only has food available 25% of the times I've been there... all during lunch and dinner hours. The first time, a few months ago, the mentally challenged waiter sat there and watched us look at the food menu for about 10 minutes—it wasn't until we finally tried to place an order that he told us there was no cooked food.
The one time I did manage to order some food it wasn't any good. And the beer selection sucks.
