Introducing London’s hottest new trend - Drunch
Published: 31 January 2011
That’s why I have filled it with as much drunching as possible.

Drunch, like so many of the most radical advances in thought, seems to have occurred to many people in many places at once.

My wife blurted out the term back in December, when we were planning our retox strategy for the new year, having spent Christmas resentfully ill.

Drinking at lunch = drunching. #newword

Is Drunching Now A Thing?
Drinks + Brunch, at one Hong Kong restaurant

("I am a real DRUNCHER and U?” is a photo caption.—ed.)
The new spot in Hong Kong’s SoHo neighborhood (how many SoHo’s are there?) seems like a friendly joint with chalkboard walls and a “relaxing atmosphere,” but what really sets them apart in our book is their embrace of daytime drinking. So as we head into this weekend, there’s a new item on our eating and drinking agenda: Drunch! Thanks, Aberdeen Street.
