- Kunming used to have wonderful varieties of street food available everywhere, but since the government decided to turn Kunming into a clean city, street food vendors are not allowed to sell their fare by the street sides anytime they want, only during early morning or late in the evening they are allowed to sell their service (though some still dare to sell during the day). If the police caught them selling, their fare will be taken away by force (unpleasant sight sometimes, and I hate this kind of show of power thing). Kunming street food has a wide range of varieties, the most common one is street side grill (costumer choose what they want and each have a fixed price), there are also the local style grilled rice cake, fried potato, smelly tofu, and many more. They tend to gather around university areas where the students who live in the dorms often go out to buy food to eat. Most of the grills are already marinated in spicy sauce, so be aware.
