Two expats from Africa are doing just that in operating a food vendor stand at a night market in Shenyang, Liaoning Province, reports Sina.

The duo usually divides the work with one making the hamburgers, while the other takes his shirt off and puts on a muscle show said to attract squeals from female patrons.

The expats have named their popular stand “Little Black Hamburgers”. Chinese netizens have had mixed reactions:

The hundreds of thousands of black “uncles” in Guangzhou are awaiting for these screaming women to call them

Hahaha, these comments are full of self-hating losers with no muscles and jealous of others who have nothing to say but “that’s disgusting”. Hahaha, stupid cunts.

After catching this person working in an illegal trade, there’s no way this kind of person has a work permit

Do chengguan dare to deal with the likes of them?

You have the resources, you have a head for business, why not sell your body? The business is good.

While a lot of attention has been paid to this chef duo, nobody has indicated if the burgers are any good.

UPDATE August 14: Two weeks after their story went public, “Little Black Hamburgers” show no signs of waning media interest as they continue to gather crowds. As well, the pair who are students at the local university have new competition in the Shenyang night market from a woman identified as a Brazilian who is operating a stall next to them.little black hamburger shenyang liaoning
