Around China

Grape expectations

A recent report that China currently has more vineyards in cultivation for winemaking than France generated lots of Internet buzz, but it's not quite true. China grows more grapes, industry sources say, but that figure includes fresh fruit harvested as table grapes. France still grows more wine grapes-at least for now.

Beijing

Taste of Nanjing

Eat Beat

Nanjing Dapaidang, a successful Nanjing-style restaurant franchise with many outlets all over Beijing, Tianjin, and Nanjing in Jiangsu province, recently opened a less-expensive junior brand eatery, Shi Da Shi, in the Yintai Center at Beijing's CBD. It's the third Shi Da Shi restaurant in China, following two in Nanjing. The junior brand offers customers a set of choices of different bibimbap dishes and noodles made with vegetables, nuts, mushrooms and meat, aiming to provide busy white-collar workers healthy but fast food. Until the end of May, customers who forward the posts on Shi Da Shi's official WeChat account to their own account will be able to earn a bowl of bibimbap for only 1 yuan (16 cents).

B1-08 Beijing Yintai Center, 2 Jianguomenwai Street, Chaoyang district. 010-8517-1797.
