Amidst the rapid development happening in Wangjing, Picture My Cup has placed its final touches up on the walls and seems poised to secure itself as a go-to place in the neighborhood for high-quality American brunch and lunch fare.

Following the huge success of Kro’s Nest, owner Marty Handley is taking a step back from the world of pizza, and adding sandwiches, hot dogs, all-day breakfast and delectable lunch specials to his new venture. Coupled with a satisfying drinks menu – especially for those who enjoy the odd alcoholic beverage – Picture My Cup is a welcome innovation to Wangjing.

Their signature item, a customizable sandwich (RMB 55), gives the choice of one type of bread, one meat, one cheese, one sauce, and one side dish. For the mathematicians among us, I believe that equates to a lot of delicious options available. The multigrain bread tasted like one from a farmers’ market – hot and fresh with a captivating aroma that brought the countryside onto the plate. White cheddar cheese melted into roast beef, accented by a jalapeno whole grain mustard. With so many choices to be made, Picture My Cup is guaranteed to snap up new customers very quickly.
