Our Third Office Potluck Lunch

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather
Today is a big day for Tour-Beijing.com. Why today? Because today we say goodbye to outsourced, routine and uniform lunches! Because today we have home-cooked dishes for our office lunch! Because today we recreate the taste of our mothers” meatballs!

Let’me show you some of the home cooked recipes by our office staffers (most Post-1980’s Generation) who were born with a golden spoon in her/his mouth. Though the dishes may not look and taste as brilliant as those made by restaurants, they touch our hearts and extend our world… 

Preparing and Heating up the food
All meals carried from home kept in the food plastic containers quietly piled up on the area in our office.
