Breakfast on the street, anyone?

Updated: 2022-01-10

A brand new day starts with breakfast. But breakfast means different things to different people. What do people eat to start their day? 

The Beijing Economic and Technological Development Area (BDA) has launched mobile catering sales vehicles to let citizens enjoy warm breakfast on the way to work.

Breakfast on the street warms the stomach and heart! On the morning of Dec 22, in front of the mobile food truck in Dazu Square, Mr. Zhang, who was waiting for cold noodles, said that, "In the past, I was in a hurry for work and often couldn't have breakfast in time. This small dining car solved my problem."

Some mobile food trucks are located near the park, serving white-collar workers; some are located near hospitals, serving patients and their families; some serve the residents of youth apartments. 

Currently, each dining car provides light meals all day, serving an average of 130 people each day.

In less than 10 minutes, the roasted cold noodles were finished, and Mr. Zhang couldn't wait to take a bite:" The staff are wearing masks and gloves, and the meal-making process at the window is completely transparent, clean and hygienic."

While offering catering services, these mobile food trucks are also equipped with convenient supplies such as wheelchairs, umbrellas, power banks, and simple trauma first aid kits. 

Customers can rent them by scanning the QR code. Meanwhile, the car is also equipped with fire-fighting equipment to provide security for the surrounding environment.
