Hidden among the back alleys of Beijing and within the Dongcheng neighborhood, the Dali Courtyard offers a quaint outdoor setting and authentic Yunnanese cuisine. Food from the southern province of Yunnan utilizes the herbs of the region, as well as the mushrooms it’s known for. There is no set menu here; instead, diners pay a set price and are surprised by the chef’s fresh picks from the morning market. Dishes may include ru bing (goat cheese on the grill) or various stir-fried meats and vegetables.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
