If you ever find yourself in Beijing China, there is a place on JiangTai Lu that you must visit. Just about 1 block south of the Lido Hotel, there is a small group of shops and restaurants. There was a Jenny-Lu's grocery on the corner. This shows the front of the building when we were there.
The entire staff here is friendly and extremely hardworking. They all work together as a team and only worry about making sure your day is better for having stopped in to see them.
Do you know the lyrics to that song from the television show "Cheers"? The line that says, "You want to go where everybody knows your name" is the perfect description for this restaurant. Once you have met, everybody there knows your name.
We became friends with the employees and found that this developed into our absolutely favorite place in Beijing.
When they found out we were leaving, they gave Debbie and I shirts with the Peter's logo. This is one of our favorite gifts from China and it never fails to remind us of great times and good friends.
I have decided that the best way to show my appreciation, is to always take the shirt with me in my travels, and collect pictures; in this way I am sharing Peter's TexMex Restaurant with the world, and the folks there can share the world with me just a little longer.
I hope that in your life, you can find friends as good as we found at Peter's and that you can share the blessing of friendship with others in your travels, wherever those travels might take you.
