When ‘dim sum’ restaurants open in China
Restaurante Chino, a dim sum restaurant in Shanghai, opened its doors on Friday.
The restaurant has since expanded to six locations, and is set to open more locations in the coming months.
“Dim sum restaurants are a popular way to meet friends and share meals,” said a statement from the restaurant.
“We aim to be a positive influence in the city’s dining scene and the Chinese food culture.”
According to the Chinese Food Service Association (CFSA), there are around 6,000 dim sum restaurants in the country.
The restaurants are often a popular option for Chinese people, who are more likely to eat out at restaurants with Chinese names than those with English names.
The Chinese government is keen to encourage diners to find ways to support local businesses, and have a range of restaurants open on Fridays.
Restaurants in Shanghai will be able to sell their own dim sum in addition to Chinese-made dim sum.
The restaurants also sell alcohol, which is legal in China.
China has one of the highest consumption rates of alcohol in the world, according to the World Health Organization.
The country is known for strict rules on the consumption of alcohol, with a ban on its sale in supermarkets and bars.
It has also seen a rise in the number of suicides and alcohol-related deaths in recent years.
China is also one of Asia’s most crime-ridden countries.
According to a 2016 report by the US National Crime Victimization Survey, the rate of homicides committed in China had doubled between 2005 and 2015, from 1,632 to 1,965, and was up 30% from 2008 to 2014.
In December last year, China closed all the major online outlets of the state-owned Chinese micro-blog platform WeChat, and blocked users from posting comments on WeChat.
However, online news portal Sina Weibo, which has about 100 million users, has been allowed to operate.
A spokesperson for China’s foreign ministry said: “In the coming days, the Chinese government will promote and enforce a strict, healthy and law-abiding society, and to promote and safeguard the social order.”
Earlier this month, Chinese social media users protested against a proposed law in Hong Kong, which would have required all new restaurants to open on Friday or Monday, rather than Saturday.
China’s government is also considering whether to allow more restaurants to operate on Fridays in the future.
