Our guide will introduce you to 5-6 vegan snack foods (which you will eat while exploring the stalls) and 2-3 vegan meal-sized dishes (that you will sit around a table to enjoy). Some dishes to sample include: douhua mixian (豆花米线) or Kunming’s famous rice noodles smothered in spices and tofu and xidoufen (稀豆粉) a delicious, thick gravy made from ground peas topped with spices. You’ll try cakes made from local buckwheat, corn or purple rice and sample freshly fried lotus fritters.

At this restaurant, guests will try a vegan version of one of the most well-known dishes of Yunnan cuisine, Crossing-the-Bridge Rice Noodles. This restaurant is the first one to create a vegan rendition of the dish that utilizes fresh ingredients pulled from the local landscape, including wild mushrooms and rainbow noodles made from rice and a variety of local, in-season vegetables. The name of this dish comes from a well-known and well-loved legend in China which tells the story of a wife travelling across a bridge to bring her husband lunch as he studied for his imperial exams. At first, the noodles grew soggy and the soup became cold by the time the wife reached her husband. Then, the cunning wife decided to store the soup in an earthen pot with a layer of oil on top and keep the noodles and toppings in separate containers. When she arrived across the bridge, she mixed the warm soup, noodles, and toppings together for her husband.
