A restaurant in Beijing rolled out “Moon Jae-in Combo” after the South Korean president dropped by the cozy establishment for a low-key breakfast during his state visit to China last week.

Featuring the exact same dishes the president enjoyed at Yonghe Xian Jiang, the special menu went on sale two days after his visit on Thursday.

Moon Jae-in combo turned up on the restaurant’s menu on Ele.me, a food delivery app on Saturday, and has since been seen in Weibo posts by locals who scurried to try the presidential menu.

The combo consists of Chinese fried churros, salty soy milk, soup dumpling and wonton soup. Priced at 35 yuan ($5.3), the presidential serving is affordable for those with a humble budget.

Other than the special menu, the restaurant is commemorating the presidential visit by donning its wall with a photo of Moon and first lady Kim Jung-sook dining at the place.
