Although winter hit back with a vengance earlier this week, the gorgeous blue skies are back and Spring feels like it’s finally sprung!
Timing couldn’t be better as Migas is launching it’s new La Feria weekend brunch, designed to show off the colorful vivacity of the Andalucia region of Spain.
“Inspired by the raucous festivals in the south of Spain, Migas is pleased to bring you “La Feria” brunch! One of the most popular regional festivals in Spain is “La Feria de Abril” celebrated every April in Sevilla. This is the first and biggest feria to kick off spring every year, and afterwards, others cities and towns in the south of Spain then host their own ferias, with very characteristic elements in common: 1. To celebrate that the warm season has arrived 2. To enjoy yummy traditional snacks and drinks 3. Sing and dance in all the different “casetas” (striped tents), while dressed up in the bright and colourful traditional costumes. All the bright colours, flowers and music creates a one-of-a-kind magical Andalusian energy floating around.” - The Migas Team

Try Out the New Brewer’s Brunch at Jing-A Taproom with the BJ FOoDiEs Clan!
As we welcome back warmer weather this Spring (it’s rainy and dreary now, but meant to warm straight back up in time for the weekend), it’s high time that we start getting out more during the day to soak up some much needed Vitamin D! Whether you’re nursing a hangover or not quite ready to wrap up the weekend, Sundays are always 100x more spectacular when you have a boozy brunch scheduled!
Who needs coffee when you’ve got Beergarita and Beer Belly-ni on the menu?!

The Hatchery Re-locates to Zhangzi Zhonglu w/ Gail’s Caribbean Pop-Up
After a very abrupt demise earlier this year, the Hatchery are back!
They have moved into a new location just south of Zhangzizhonglu subway station on Dongsi Jiutiao 东四九条 in the dynamic co-working space called 5LMeet. The space itself is very interesting – it offers the use of desks by the day, beds by night (small apartments for short or long term rent), has a gym, cafe, bookstore, events space and obviously a cool concept like the Hatchery housed within.
LDS Snapshots of 5LMeet:

North Side Meets South Side: A Handsome Line-Up of Talented Chefs
The boys at the Georg like to play and the kitchen is their playground.
Where all the new dish creations are first tested, plated and tasted, their kitchen has been action-packed as they’ve been busy cranking out a new winter dinner menu, new “Fat Freddy’s Brunch” menu and even a new lunch menu featuring all the tasty smørrebrøds that was launched at the joint pop-up with Moka Bros last month.
As productive as they’ve been, I suppose “boys will be boys” as Georg’s general manager Stefano Censi who is half Danish/half Italian thought it’d be good fun to bring in a fellow Italian chef for a month-long stint and, in his words, to balance out the ratio of Danish to Italian in the kitchen.
