I prefer to have my morning coffee anywhere near my house. I don’t have a specific place as where I have my coffee simply marks the first stop of a new day.
Bulza Production Studio, where I get together with friends and colleagues, not just to work but to catch up.

Go-to lunch restaurant
A quick lunch at Hallall (fast-food chain)
Dish in a local restaurant
My favorite traditional dish is chicken with stuffing and, as for restaurants, I would pick Diplomat 2 and Fishop.

Go-to dinner restaurant:

I don’t go often but, when I do, I pop my head in Lollipop Dance Club.
