President Moon Jae-in kicked off the second day of his state visit to China with breakfast at a streetside restaurant in Beijing early Thursday.

President Moon and First Lady Kim Jung-sook popped in to a small restaurant called Yonghe Xian Jiang near Diaoyutai State Guesthouse where he is staying during the state visit.

The menu included Youtiao, Chinese fried churros, accompanied with salty milk soup called Dou Jiang, a combination commonly eaten for breakfast in the country.
