Beijing dessert shop redefines the meaning of fast food

060A dessert shop in Beijing is literally delivering "fast" food to customers by sliding the dishes to them on a make-shift slide.

The store advertising "mung bean ice porridge", or sweet Cantonese congee with green mung beans, uses a metal slide several metres long to send the orders down to the customers waiting at street level.

As the kitchen is located on the first floor of a residential building, it operates out of a window with a blue-backgrounded menu displaying dishes outside and green shrubbery just below it.

A woman is seen placing the store's dishes - wrapped in plastic bags - in a basket which is lowered to customers standing on the footpath.

The basket is attached to the top of the slide by a red string, guiding the dish safely to the bottom, which flattens out into a sort of landing area for customers to pick up their orders.

After the food is collected, the basket is pulled back up to the store's window by the string.

Online users reacted in amusement to the unconventional delivery method, with one calling it "amazing" and another joking that it was "fast food".

The same thing happened previously at the Communication University of China in Nanjing, with a student using a pulley system to pick up food deliveries from the ground level.
