Lest anybody should assume that this blog is dead and gone, we feel it’s time to assert that it’s only on a temporary hiatus. The reason for this is that all the contributors have at presently relocated back to the northern scandinavian wastes, where things are certainly rough, but not very shabby. There’s thus no possibility of making further shabbiness reviews, for now. There are many restaurants in Kunming that we wanted to review; some of which we do have sufficient material from to possibly post a review despite having relocated, but others that really deserved our attention simply can’t get it until an hypotetical future where we again find ourselves in Kunming. There’s also the possibility of extending this blog to cover other parts of China; at the very least, we’ll be sure to post Bonus Features as soon as we again sets foot on chinese soil.
The main reason for this post, however, is to call your attention to a slight change of an old review. Repeated visists to Lǎo Déhóng (老德宏) over time convinced us that, although everything we claimed in the old review was correct, the general food quality is somewhat extraordinary for such a shabby place, and it’s actually on par with three times as expensive Dai restaurants elsewhere in town. Accordingly, Lǎo dé hóng actually deserves a rating of 5 laowai for it’s food (we had given it 4 before).
This was all for now. Check back once in a blue moon; there will be more updates.
