The world’s biggest restaurant chain is about to open in Shanghai, but it’s going to be a lot less expensive than you might expect.
The fast-food giant has said it will start charging for food on the premises and is going to make the most of its location in the heart of Shanghai’s shopping and entertainment district.
The opening of The Palace is scheduled to be completed in January, and the new eatery will be able to accommodate up to 80,000 diners per day, according to The Associated Press.
The Palace will be China’s largest restaurant and one of the country’s largest dining complexes, the AP reported.
It will also serve up some of the world-famous dishes like the Bao Bao Chicken and the Choy Pao Pork, which are popular in China and elsewhere.
The food menu will also include dishes such as the famous beef dish Szechuan Beef with Garlic, as well as dishes like Shanghai Szechwan Beef Steak, a specialised dish of Szechwani beef served with a spicy soy sauce.
The palace’s owners plan to bring in as many as 200,000 workers over the next two years to serve the Chinese people and staff at the new restaurant, according the AP.
Restaurants in other countries have also opened in China in recent years.
In 2016, the first restaurant in the United States opened in New York City.
McDonald’s opened its first restaurant outside of Asia in the U.S. in March 2018.
The McDonald’s China franchise will be the first in China to open.
