Want to find a familiar convenience shop to buy staples? There are many 7-11 shops in Beijing. One of them is located in SOHO Modern City, near the Dawanglu metro station.
In Beijing, 7-11 is famous for its take-away food. They serve a popular pot-roast. Its ingredients are eggs, leek and bean curds, trumpet shells and chickens. They also serve Baozi (a steamed, filled dumpling traditional in Chinese cuisine).
You can also find staples from Korea, Japan, and the US. It is also a good place to buy some Chinese local snacks: preserved plum, fried peas, peanuts, walnuts, and honeyed Chinese dates.
