It’s a long and somewhat unusual journey to make, from working with an import-export company in Southern China to running your own restaurant in Ayr town centre.

But that’s how the CV of Meiqin McColm reads, and it also includes a spell working in New Zealand.

But now she is the proud owner of La Pecherie Seafood Restaurant and Grill in Ayr’s Cathcart Street, off the Sandgate.

Meiqin was born in Shanghai in 1959. Her career started when she went to New Zealand to assist and advise companies there about importing goods from China.

She returned to China to set up her own business facilitating international joint ventures between Chinese companies and partners from overseas.

Meiquin came to live in Ayr in 1998, where her next venture was to set up a clinic in Racecourse Road offering alternative medicine including Chinese acupuncture.

But, always keen to take on a new challenge, Meiqin realised that most of her friends were involved in some way or other in the food industry, and as she had always enjoyed meeting new people, she decided to open her own restaurant.

She wanted something that little bit different, so, as seafood eateries in Ayr were scarce, she took over the existing business of Peter’s Restaurant in Cathcart Street, already well-known for its speciality fish dishes.

Meiqin changed the name to La Pecherie Seafood Restaurant and Steak Grill to reflect these specialities, but also to emphasise that the new establishment could cater equally well for diners who prefer meat to fish.

She aims to keep her prices affordable, and offers a business lunch from £7.95, and a pre-theatre dinner from £8.95, as well as a full a-la-carte menu.

Meiqin’s immediate ambition is to establish a reputation for consistency of standards in both food and service, so that the rosettes and awards that really put a restaurant on the map will inevitably follow.
