I usually visit Greytown a few times a year and as soon as I arrive, I’m filled with a sense of calm. An obligatory stop was made again at 2 short whites eatery and preservatory.

Located in Chews Lane, it was a little slow to take off six months ago but is now flying high. The owner and staff are just so delightful, accommodating and passionate about food and service. I swear I have never met an awful Vietnamese person. Continue reading
