What people like to eat for breakfast and lunch

Duration: 03:06

What do people in Beijing like to eat? For the Chinese, eating is an important part of daily life. Breakfast and lunch are particularly important meals, so the body can keep going for the rest of the day. Traditional breakfast consists of corn or rice porridge with pickles, but roadside stalls offer much more variety. Lunch is heartier still, with a range of meat and vegetables accompanied by rice or noodles.
