Many of you have asked where we get the colorful dishes we use to serve our creations. Remember that pottery store that used to be in Europlaza? Later it moved to Jingmi Lu before vanishing into thin air…? Guess what? We found it!
While driving around Shunyi one day we spotted a van with “Chinaware for export” printed on the back door. Did we not we recognize the name from somewhere? Was that perhaps the store we had been meaning to go to and when we did it had disappeared? A quick text message was sent to the number and all we could do was wait. And you know - we are oh so patient!
Less then 24 hours later we get a call from a Chinese man who immediately hands over the phone to a woman who speaks a fraction of English. To make a long story short, it quickly got too complicated and we decided that she would send the directions in Chinese for us to show to a local driver.
We did and, after a few more phone calls, we went all the way on the river road until the main intersection where we turned left, continued straight, went under the ramp to the Jing Cheng Expressway and continued even further. There is nothing there, nada, and the road will eventually come to a dead end. Just before it does; look for a small building on your right, the store is located on the second floor, the name is on a big billboard on the building itself - Pottery for Export.
Have fun shopping! This is what we most recently bought.
