BEIJING, Nov. 11 (Xinhuanet) -- Twenty government-assigned breakfast stands Thursday began selling food in the Jianwai area of Chaoyang district in Beijing.

Area administrators cleared out privately-operated food trolleys three months ago and replaced them with the new food service for the 500,000 people working in the Central Business District.

Some 35 types of food and drink, both in Chinese and Western style, are available from 5:30 am to 9:30 am at the oval-shaped mobile stands in 20 locations, including Wanda Plaza, SOHO New Town and Jinghui Jie.

The food, pre-prepared and dispatched to each stand every morning, includes porridge, baozi (steam stuffed buns), milk, sandwiches and hamburgers and costs 0.5 to 4 yuan ($0.06-0.63). The menu is written in both Chinese and English.

"Sandwiches and meat rolls sell the best," said Chen Jinqiong, an employee working at a stand near Wanda Plaza. The food was sold out by 9 am, she told the Global Times.

The stands offered free breakfast Wednesday morning to officially launch the service.
