Eating

Dai dishes include grilled fish or beef cooked with lemongrass, or served with peanut or tomato sauces. The most authentic Dai restaurants are located on the outskirts of town and serve up big set-meal feasts, so get a group together; ask at the Meimei Café for directions. In the centre, Menghai Lu, Mengpeng Lu and Menghun Lu all have a handful of Dai restaurants.
