Wild Mushroom Street (Guanxing Road)

The stretch of Guanxing Road is most active June through September, when local restaurants take full advantage of the high wild mushroom season. Establishments that specialise exclusively in mushroom hot pot only open during those months, but some remain in operation through the year.


Kunming is famous for Yunnan rice noodles (also known as "crossing-the-bridge noodles"), served separate from a piping-hot broth and a variety of add-ins, all of which are mixed together into the soup where they cook before the diners' very eyes. Wild mushrooms are another local speciality, a delicacy prised by the Chinese (the high season runs June through September).
