Vice President Joe Biden Has Lunch at a Snack Shop in Beijing ( VIDEO )

Vice President Joe Biden’s stop at a local lunch spot near the Drum and Bell Tower neighborhood in Old Beijing on the first day of his official visit has all of China talking. Embassy Beijing’s post about the traditional lunch fare he ordered — pork buns, zhajiang noodles and cucumbers — on one of the most popular Chinese microblogs, Sina, received over 6,400 retweets and 3,000 comments in less than an hour. Joining the Vice President at lunch were newly installed U.S. Ambassador to China Gary Locke and his wife Mona, plus Vice President’s daughter-in-law Kathleen and granddaughter Naomi, who are traveling with him through Asia.
