Just a quick little post. So, I had lunch at Vietnamese cafe Time Banhmi the other day and it was fantastic. It’s on Grainger Street, just a short walk from Monument Metro station, and it’s the perfect place to stop for lunch if you like Asian cuisine. I’m actually kicking myself that it took me this long to […]


When confronted with choosing a place for dinner, it’s so easy to just end up at a chain restaurant – even if that wasn’t your intention! Why?

So we’ve decided to do it again, sharing the food we’re grabbing on the go… Here’s a run-down of what we’ve been eating lately: The pineapple custard buns, egg custard tarts and glazed barbecue pork buns from Breadpoint.
