  • Janet Yellen is meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping today.

  • Before meeting him at the San Francisco airport, Yellen stopped at an In-N-Out.

  • She ordered two classics, according to a Treasury department spokesperson.

On her way to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping at the San Francisco airport, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen stopped at In-N-Out for a bite to eat.

But what did the famous economist order?

Business Insider can exclusively report her meal was a "cheeseburger with fries & onions," according to Lily Adams, an Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs at the Treasury.

The Treasury Department didn't respond to a follow-up email seeking clarification about whether the fries had onions on them, or if the onions were on the burger, or if anything was "animal style."

Xi is in the US for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meeting and is scheduled to meet with President Joe Biden on Wednesday. Tech execs are reportedly "scrambling" to meet with the Chinese leader during his trip. It's unclear if he'll visit In-N-Out.

Secretary Yellen recently made headlines for an unrelated food incident involving China: She accidentally ate hallucinogenic mushrooms during a visit to the country.
