Dali has some interesting vegetables! The middle row is all mushrooms which Yunnan is famous for. We made a mistake our first night in Dali when we went out to dinner and asked the restaurant what their specialities were. Our plate of fancy wild mushrooms ended up costing us six times as much as all of the other dishes. They were good, but not exceptional and tasted just like any other mushrooms. I felt better about it though when we went hiking later and actually saw villagers coming back from mushroom foraging in the mountains.
