This restaurant’s been a favorite with locals since it opened in the late 1990s, especially among the expats who flock here for its authentic and flavorful Yunnan cuisine cooked by the owner, a native of China's interior Yunnan province. In 2013, the restaurant launched a new menu, but don’t skip the old standbys of grilled goat cheese (a Yunnan specialty), Crossing Bridge Noodles, and beer chicken. It can be tough to find—you’ll have to go to the back of the building and up a staircase—but you won’t be disappointed. The imported beer selection is outstanding, and often wins awards from the foodie publications in town.
