Life in the city could be hard, frustrating and altogether stressful, so it couldn’t be helped that it drives us into an unhealthy lifestyle – fast foods, binge eating and drinking, you name it, at one point, we’ve indulged in it.
In the midst of all the noise, the buzz, the hectic schedules and the stress of our lives, sometimes, the only thing that we need is a place where we could finally breathe and take a break from our unhealthy vices. A vacation away from the city might always do the fix, but the reality is, sometimes, time and circumstances just wouldn’t give us the break. But don’t fret, because we might have just found a sanctuary in the metro where we could just take a quick escape and enjoy food and drinks that is not only good for the body but are also amazingly tasty.
