“Nice Little Restaurant in Shuhe Ancient Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2009

Located just inside the entrance to Gourmet Street in the ancient town of Shuhe, near Lijiang, Old Town Restaurant is a tiny place, with only a few picnic tables outside, and a couple more inside. The menu is only in Chinese, and the staff do not speak English, but they were able to recommend one dish to us -a local Naxi noodle soup dish that was very tasty. The food is pretty spicy here, so if you don't like spicy, make sure to ask for "no spicy", that worked for us. Several types of local beers are served, room temperature of course, but they will chill it for you if you ask. These beers are actually made to drink room temperature, so there is not a need to (like Guinness).

Food is very local and very authentic, we were the only foreigners at this place. Nice way to taste the local minority cuisine of Yunnan without going off the beaten track. This is a very casual place, so don't get too excited, but cheap (about $2.00 to $5.00 per person, depending on what you order) and tasty, with very friendly service. As with nearly all restaurants in Yunnan, payment is cash only.
