I suggest you take trains which are more convenient. There are several trains running between Kunming and Qujing. The fastest ones like T9002/T9004/T9006/T9008/T9010/T9012/T9014/T9016 take only 1.5 hours.
For accommodation, you may consider Qujing Hotel, 2 star, at Wenchang Street, downtown of Qujing. The transportation is very convenient.
For the famous food, I can recommend several famous restaurants there.
1. Jiuxingyuan Restaurant (#30 Huake Road, TEL:0874-43211042)
2. Beiyingyuan Restaurant ($319 Qili Nanlu Road, TEL: 0874-3135562)
