A restaurant in Beijing visited by South Korean President Moon Jae-in has rolled out a dish set named after the leader, Chinese social media platform Weibo showed Monday.

The Yonghe Xianjiang restaurant, where Moon and his wife had breakfast on Thursday during his four-day state visit, started to sell the "Moon Jae-in Set" on Saturday.

The set menu is comprised of "youtiao," or Chinese fried churros, Chinese "doujiang" soy milk, Chinese "xiaolongbao" steamed dumplings and Chinese "huntun" dumpling soup. The restaurant displays a banner and a photo of the presidential visit.

Ele.me, China's largest food delivery service, is also selling the package. Following the launch of the new menu item by Yonghe Xianjiang, many Chinese people have posted messages and photos saying they have been to the restaurant and tasted the food.
