CHINA: A bian dang containing rice, meat or eggs, dumplings, and crunchy vegetables.

Chinese employees will either bring a packed lunch from home or buy a "bian dang" on their way to the office. This boxed up meal, whose name literally translates as "convenience," often contains rice, fried meat or eggs, dumplings, and vegetables.
Some employees in China are reportedly encouraged to take a short nap after lunch to encourage productivity in the afternoon. As a result, some establishments will give their workers up to two hours away from their desks in the middle of the day.

GERMANY: Currywurst with chips, an apple, coffee, water.

German employees prefer a shorter lunch break and would rather stay in the office building than head to a nearby shop or restaurant. Canteens are a popular option with few employees taking longer than half an hour away from their desk.
A typical office lunch in Germany consists of fast food favourite "currywurst" — griddled and sliced sausages topped with curry ketchup — and chips, chased by an apple and some water.

INDIA: Rice, moong dal (pea and potato curry), chapati, chai tea.

In India, lunch is very much a family affair — even if you're not sitting down to eat it all together.
Family members pack hot lunches in tiffin boxes for those at work. These are then collected by tiffin wallahs and delivered to the workers. This operation is very popular in India's bigger cities, such as Mumbai.
A tiffin box often contains a vegetable or lentil curry alongside rice or a chapati flatbread — all of which is followed by a cup of sweetened chai tea.

ITALY: Pasta with tuna and tomatoes, salad, espresso.

While employees in small towns and villages might go home to eat with their families, office workers in Italy's larger cities often go to a tavola calda, or snack bar, for their hour-long lunch break.
At home, workers might have a bowl of pasta with tuna, tomatoes, and olives and a green salad. At a snack bar, Italian workers can buy pizza al taglio. Large rectangular pizzas are cooked in sheet pans then sliced up and bought by weight so customers can buy as much or as little as they like to suit their appetite.
