With over 45 types of dried spices and around 50 varieties of cheese, April Gourmet is a gem nestled in the heart of Beijing's embassy district. Frequented primarily by embassy staff, it is a quaint, convenient place to pop in to during lunch breaks or after work. Walls are stocked from floor to ceiling with cereals, olive oils, a multitude of cheese spreads, an international wine selection and just about anything else one might have thought to be unavailable in Beijing. New products arrive weekly so check in regularly to see what is in stock.
I tried this store today, and was fairly pleased with their offerings, and better pricing than a lot of their Beijing competitors. For a little under RMB 200 I walked away with 1000 grams of pizza cheese, 2 cans of pasta sauce, 2 cans of black olives, and 200 grams of locally made pepperoni. That's enough to keep me in homemade pizza for quite a while. I'll likely go back to April Gourmet when it comes time to restock.
