早餐卷 zǎocānjuàn 'breakfast ticket' (lit. 'early meal document'; no tickee,
no eatee.)
In Taiwan, many hotels/hostels still offer in-house "free breakfast" after
pay-check-in, and meal tickets are all the rage.
A popular love motel near the Tamsui train station (allegèdly) hands out
meal tickets to a nearby Mos Burger, and more recently to MacDonalds. But,
so far, they ain't no In-N-Out Burger hereabouts.
