Come Friday, there are times when those leftovers from Thursday just won’t cut it. Maybe the kids are sound asleep and you want to relax with a nice meal and a glass of wine, or you have friends coming ‘round and you don’t have the time or energy to cook for them. Though Shunyi may not have as many delivery options as downtown, it doesn’t mean you have to settle for McDonald’s or KFC. Find a list after the jump.
You can also order through KK Rabbit, a delivery service that works on behalf of several restaurants in Shunyi, providing the latest menus on their website. Operates can provide service in English and Chinese from 10am to10.30pm every day. Call the rabbit at 400 720 1717 and specify that you’re in Shunyi so they don’t confuse you with that city lot!
