LUNCH – DALI COURTYARD this is an absolute must; it takes a little finding but worth the effort. One of the best meals I have ever experienced. It is located within a beautiful traditional Beijing Courtyard/House. A relaxed welcoming environment; a local family was celebrating a wedding lunch whilst we were there. No menu; fixed price and they bring you up to twelve different Yunnan plates. Makes ordering easy.
