  • Speaking of charm, Bean on Dean has a bit of a rustic a-little-left-of-centre theme going with its re-purposed vintage metal bar stools, recycled paint drums and industrial spool furnishings. Perhaps the owners love DIY-ing, if the wall montage of workshop tools were any indication.

  • There has been some excitement in the foodie world, seeing as Minh Le (formerly head chef at Deer Duck Bistro) is at the helm of this new establishment. It is not quite as close as the bustling Gasworks, trendy James Street or neighbourhood Merthyr Village.

  • It's been too long since we dug down for yum cha and the ones we usually hit up were either too far or it would be too difficult to find parking. Talk about being lazy.
