Take some extra time away from the desk. 

Convent Road’s colorful Mediterranean restaurant Via Maris is mixing up the lunch menu.
 
The old prices hold—B290 for two courses or B370 for three—but starting Mar 30 you’ll be seeing some substitutions on what’s already one of the best midday deals in town.
 
New appetizers take the shape of summer, as in the light cauliflower soup with chives or the friselle with chickpeas and feta. The lemon calamari with sweet potatoes makes an excellent main, but you’ll still find our favorite chorizo pizza with sheep ricotta represented.
 
And take another 10 minutes away from your desk to savor the honey cake that’s served with homemade walnut ice cream.
 
10/15 Convent Rd., 02-236-5558. Available on Mon-Fri from midday to 2:30pm
