Did you find a wood vendor?

Now I work in the Nangang software park, which could also really use a good pizza place. :pray:

I'm still trying to figure out the location of your place. The Zhunan science park isn't really near the train station -- not by my reckoning, at least. And the train station's not really near the bike path on the coast -- though for anyone who rides all the way down from Xinzhu the extra distance wouldn't seem like much. (BTW, bike "path" doesn't really do justice to this. It's more like a bike divided highway.)

Regardless, once you get everything up and running I'll direct some of my old coworkers there and make a trip by myself the next I'm in the area.

Not yet, but it's not urgent at this stage. My wife is on to it. She can negotiate with them as my Chinese is not yet good enough. But thanks a lot for giving us some pointers. When we open, you'll be invited for a complimentary pizza!

The place is just off Bo Ai Rd, which is directly adjacent to the train station and is one of the busiest thoroughfares in Zhunan. I'll keep you updated as to our progress.

I wish El Toro the best of luck with this endeavor. I have used his products from his website and they were always delicious. I have never had even a slightest hesitation. HIGHLY recommended!
My friend, I wish you the best!

Much obliged! I really appreciate the vote of confidence! Back home in SA, I had two restaurants and was jointly involved in another and our food was always received very well by our customers.

We're hoping for November. Had investor issues, which have now been sorted, but we're not ready to open yet. Will keep things updated as they develop.
