Chinese Takeout Beijing Style

In the elevator in my apartment building I realized the student holding hot food had just had it delivered. She gave me the menu. The restaurant, I learned, is called Kyoto. it serves mainly Korean and Japanese food. Free delivery. The surprising part: There’s no address. And it never closes, even on holidays.

An example of the general truth that there are many more kinds of restaurants (food-serving businesses) in Beijing than in America. Today I bought sugar-coated banana on a stick from a street vendor.

  1. Yeah, density of people is surely part of the answer. But I think New York and lots of other cities have lots of areas just as dense as my area of Beijing yet I have never come across this form of food business. In Berkeley there is a new sushi place that is delivery only but they have a webpage, an address, and an obvious physical presence.
