The newspaper dining room

beijing 005, originally uploaded by jiulong.

Come midday there is a mass stampede for the dining room at the newspaper. The stairwells come alive with eager diners, clutching their canteens or food boxes as they head for the dining room. There are actually several different dishes served each day and the food is really good. Each line [queue] has a choice of about three main dishes. When you get your food you swipe an electronc card debit card [provided to all employees and which you load up with money] and it will debit your account by about 4 kuai. Yesterday I had steamed brocolli plus some sort of diced cucumber in oyster sauce with pork. Yum. With such healthy I'm probably going to lose weight at this rate
