Shiping Huiguan

Whether it's the beautiful historic building the restaurant is housed in or the selection of mouthwatering Yunnan cuisine that are more of a draw, Shiping Huiguan is a great address for upscale dining in Kunming. You order through an iPad, where each dish is illustrated with the respective photo. Seating is available in the atmospheric courtyard.

Dining

Kunming is famous for Yunnan rice noodles (also known as "crossing-the-bridge noodles"), served separate from a piping-hot broth and a variety of add-ins, all of which are mixed together into the soup where they cook before the diners' very eyes. Wild mushrooms are another local speciality, a delicacy prised by the Chinese (the high season runs June through September).
