After a delightful morning at 颐和园 Summer Palace, we exited through it’s East Exit and took a short stroll to a nearby Yunnan restaurant for a late lunch.
This is a restaurant chain specialising in Yunnan cuisine with 18 outlets over China (mostly in Beijing).
This year happened to be the restaurant’s 7th anniversary, so we opted for the Anniversary Set at ¥177 (usual price ¥210), which consisted of 黑松露牛肝菌焖牛蛙 Braised Bull Frog with Bolete and Black Truffle, 原味汽锅鸡 Steam Pot Chicken, 鸡丝凉米线 Cold Rice Noodles with Shredded Chicken, 盖菜炒山药 Sauteéd Leaf Mustard with Chinese Yam.
Chope had a flash giveaway for noodles and pasta today, and so… We made changes to our dinner plans and ended up at Napoleon 😛
And we ended up realizing that there are so many restaurants in this stretch that we have been wanting to try out 🙂
Very unique queuing system
We decided to come here after hearing so much about this place since it opened its doors from May 2013.
There is to be no queuing at the restaurant. Instead, you gotta click for a queue number on a tablet, supply your name and mobile number, and you will be notified via a call when a table is ready for you. You can also check out the URL sent to you via SMS to find out how many tables are ahead of you. We ended up hanging around the restaurant (around the ‘Please do not queue’ signboard no less…) because it was drizzling, and this is the sole building around…
