Indeed, the young people who are working in a metropolis such as Beijing or Shanghai, they must have a outside meal during a day, which might be lunch to a great extend because majority of companies don't have cafeterias. They might eat together in a small restaurant and then pay off his/her portion of the total meal expense which depends on the result after dividing the total by the number of the people eating the lunch afterwards. If they order a takeaway, eating his/her fill would cost them CNY15 or so and sometimes cheaper because of kinds of coupons in the takeaway app. And there're so many young people in these metropolises, so it would be a huge numbers who would order takeways even if one people just order one takeaway per day. I can tell the workers in their middle ages would bring their lunch from their own homes and microwave it at noon break, but young people, especially those who like salty and greasy, would eat a takeaway at noon break at least. I go out to work at almost 7 a.m. everyday, and on the way through the family dormitory buildings I can hear people cook their lunch that would be taken to their workplaces in the kitchen. As for the replier in the second answer, he remained anonymous, so I can't guess out what kinds of social status he and his wife are in, without a doubt they're rich and well-educated though. I don't know why a rich and well-educated person would order takeaways frequently, however there's a trend here that we're not supposed to nose about the style of their lives among those top-level workers such as doctors, accountants, professionals and lawyers etc. So I can't reply to them in the comments section that eating takeaways frequently are unhealthy and a waste of money. If I did so, I would incur the wrathy cyber citizens.
Ha. well it may still be cheaper. I knew a couple, she a former bookkeeper, he an engineer I think who figured it out after they retired and earing a good meal at a wholesome restaurant was cheaper than at home where there was just the two of them. That was back in the late 70s though.
The best restaurant in my town went under as a result of pandemic worries. We would sometimes splurge on their expensive but high quality meals.
