Northside outpost of super popular Yunnan restaurant Lotus Eatery. It's a cheap, family-run restaurant serving dishes featuring wild mushrooms, pickled vegetables, BBQ, flowers, the odd insect or two, and other standbys like Yunnan-style fried goat cheese. Beer is cheap and they've got big tables and private rooms so it's perfect for large groups, birthdays, and other special occasions. The menu is gigantic, and there's probably something for everyone. Classic.
