This small hutong restaurant is a hidden gem. Tucked down a narrow alley in a converted house, it serves home-cooked treats from southwest Yunnan province. The small wooden-floor restaurant opens out onto a delightful tree-filled patio bordered by an Imperial-style concrete wall. It's a particularly romantic setting on summer evenings. The set menu changes daily and features a range of Yunnanese specialties, including a sweetly spicy dish of fried dark mushrooms, chicken with red peppers, and a mixed green salad with cucumber and strawberries. The combination of rich rustic flavors and back-lane setting creates one of Beijing's most atmospheric dining experiences.

Open daily from 11 am to 9 pm.
