Unofficially dubbed as the Ninth School of Chinese Cuisine, Yunnan Cai is an exquisite fusion of Han and Ethnic Minority culinary influences. This is no surprise – Yunnan is China’s most ethnically diverse region. Its cuisine reflects this diversity with a variety of delectable tastes – fresh wild vegetables, mushrooms and spices are a staple, and the combinations of flavors, colors and ingredients are endless. Yunnan is also Beijing’s “in-cuisine”, with new Yunnan restaurants opening every other week, each with their own unique selection of mouthwatering dishes.
