007 Food: Bowls of oatmeal

Food: Bowls of oatmeal
Bond book appearance: Never Dream of Dying (2001)
Experience of 007 Travelers: Self-made

"They heard the keys rattle in the door at the mid-morning. A guard came with a tray of food - bowls of oatmeal and no utensils. Surprisingly, it tasted good, even scraped by hand. The meal gave Bond the much-needed energy to formulate a plan."
Raymond Benson: "Never Dream of Dying" (2001)

007 Drink: Tsingtao beer

Drink: Tsingtao beer
Bond book appearance:  Zero Minus Ten (1997) 
Experience of 007 Travelers: @ home

Tsingtao Brewery Co., Ltd. (simplified Chinese: 青岛啤酒厂; traditional Chinese: 青島啤酒廠; pinyin: Qīngdǎo píjiǔchǎng; German: Tsingtao-Brauerei) is China's second largest brewery. It was founded in 1903 by German settlers and now claims about 15% of domestic market share. The beer is produced in Qingdao in Shandong province (and more recently in other breweries owned by the company as well), and it gets its name from the old École française d'Extrême-Orient transliteration of the city's name. The beer's present-day logo displays an image of Zhan Qiao, a famous pier on Qingdao's southern shore (Wikipedia).

"Woo poured two glasses of gold Tsingtao beer, and they sat down at a table near the kitchen."
