Atlas Coffeehouse Review

Atlas Coffeehouse Review When I first heard that Assembly Coffee closed earlier last year, I was upset as it was one of my favourite cafés.

6 Prawns and a Beer

6 Prawns and a Beer

Law readings are best digested with a big glass of beer to wash away the acrid taste. Alas, one will be hard pressed to find a drinking hole with delectable grub nowadays. So imagine my slight apprehension when tasked to review a joint that purports to end this first world problem once and for all....

Foodpanda: Online Food Delivery

I have a confession to make: I spent my entire Contract class thinking about food. From the moment the Professor walked in, I was scanning through menus, trying to figure out the combination of dishes that would enable me to maximise my dollar.

Beer Market: Choose Your Booze!

“Work is the curse of the drinking classes”—Oscar Wilde  Indeed for beer aficionados, they might find law school an unpleasant distraction from their true passion in life. The fervent passion for law and justice which we all professed to possess during the interview process has dissipated quickly and now all we need is a way...
