Sips & bites: Tim’s turns five, plus Moment Cafe, Ocean Grounds, Terra, Mao Mao Chong, Nespresso, Saveurs de Coree

Get grounded on coffee after a big night at Tim’s.

Tim’s Texas BBQ celebrates five years of serving both a steady stream of regulars and of tourists wandering in from The Silk Market. Look for some free beer and eats tonight and for Tim to be wearing his favorite cowboy boots.

Moment Cafe is selling some its sandwich sauces for takeaway, including tartar, garlic and that spicy Indiavolato.

That Nespresso shop in Swire Village South, the north side, is open. Expect to pay rmb50 to rmb58 for a sleeve of ten coffee capsules. Friendly and informative staff.

Ocean Grounds, third floor of U-Town, is introducing its first direct trade coffee this Saturday — Buenos Aires Tabion from El Salvador . Coffee, eats, live music from 2 PM to 4 PM.

Also on Saturday, Terra turns two in Sanlitun South.

On Sunday, Mao Mao Chong will feature sausage rolls, veggie rolls and Greek-style meatballs, at rmb45 per serving, from 1 PM to 4 PM and 6-10 PM. Book yours with the bar by 11 PM tonight.

Looking ahead, bibimbap til you drop and drink til you sink at Saveurs de Coree in Xiang’er Hutong next Wednesday as this place pairs Korean food with Chinese wine. More details here.

  1. Boyce, In the article you linked to for Saveurs de Coree, it says the special will be on August 27 (Monday), but this article says ‘next Wednesday’. Can you please clarify which day it is? Thanks!

  2. Hi Amy,

    Yep, I mistakenly listed two days, but Saveurs de Coree says no problem, they will do the pairings on Wednesday, too.

    Cheers, Jim
