|Kebab King's Bid Wins Top Stall in Temple Fair|
Gu Shengli, the famous Inner Mongolian "barbecue kebab king", won the competition again by offering a 234,000-yuan bid for a food stall on auction, held by Longtanhu Park for its temple fair.
Earlier this year, Gu's stall in 2009 Ditan Spring Festival Temple Fair brought in a profit of more than 300,000 yuan from selling 12,000 kebabs with 1.1 million visitors over the 8-day period.
Besides the popular 10-yuan Arabian-flavor kebabs, his "secret weapon" this year is 10,000 "Gift Bags of Do-It-Yourself Kebabs".
There will be uncooked kebabs in the bag, and a small refined oven as well, so that the visitors can not only eat the kebabs by coming to his stall but also enjoy the fun of doing barbecue themselves at home.
