It was another incredible day of Chinese food in Yunnan. It was a cold and rainy day, so we started with some noodles. Then we went to Luxi’s cooking class and learned how to make Chinese hot chili oil, and finally ended the day with an amazing copper hot pot of a special type of yellow beef.

Breakfast at Liu Pan Shui Mutton Vermicelli (六盘水羊肉米线) – Located in Dali Old Town, we started off the cold and rainy morning with a bowl of mutton vermicelli. The noodles were so warm and soothing and the mutton was fragrant. But probably the best thing about this Chinese breakfast was the hot chili oil, and Luxi said they had some of the best!
Price – 12 RMB ($1.82)

Wan Bao Hong Cheng Tea Shop – After breakfast, we walked over to a local tea shop to sample some Yunnan teas. Yunnan is famous for growing tea, and especially for pu’er tea, which is black, aged and fermented tea. It was a great learning opportunity, and as a tea and hot drinks lover, I fully enjoyed it.
Pu’er tea – 300 RMB ($45.47)

Rice and Friends – Chinese Cooking Class – Luxi was our guide for a few days during this Chinese food tour trip, and she also owns a cooking school in Dali called Rice and Friends ( We first went to the market and bought a few ingredients, then we went back to her cooking school to learn a few dishes. The highlight for me was learning how to make Sichuan style hot chili oil – a condiment that you can use for just about anything and everything.

Yellow beef copper hot pot – Yunnan is known for its speciality yellow beef, and also for a style of copper hot pot. The beef and broth was insanely flavorful, and we added in a few vegetables. One of the best things about this type of Chinese hot pot is getting to make your sauce. And we must have added about 25 different ingredients and seasonings to our sauces. It was an outstanding meal, one of the best meals of my trip to Yunnan, China.
Total price – 149 RMB ($22.57)

Special thanks to Zouba Tours ( for arranging everything in this video. I paid for this tour, but I think they did a great job, and I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the tour.

That completes Day 3 of this Chinese food tour of Yunnan. If you haven’t already, watch the full series here:

  1. Nice , simple people, but very hot meal! How you can eat so hot chili, doesn't hurt your stomach? Différents ingrédients, I wish try that , but I can't!

  2. Just wanna say to be carefull if you are new with spicy food like chilli oil. I just make chilli oil and its very good for eat, but i got some realy unplesure pain in stomach. I drink some milk and its litle better. Maybe i dont have resistant or somethin, but i got that pain from chilli oil. I hope after few times i will become more resistant on chilli oil. Cheers!
