Avroko, David Laris collaborate for The Temple House’s restaurant and bar collection

The Temple House announced a collection of restaurants and bar in preparation for its opening this May 2015. Designed by Avroko, with the concepts developed by David Laris, the collection will be the latest addition to the Chengdu dining scene and destination neighborhood venues.

Located at street or courtyard level, all the restaurant outlets were designed to be accessible and to attract visitors from the newly-opened shops and boutiques in Taikoo Li.

The Temple Café will be an all-day dining restaurant offering breakfast, lunch, dinner and light bites in a bright surrounding. The café will combine two components: dining and a grab-and-go counter. Guests have the options of dining in or enjoying deli items in grab-and-go packages. The menu presents international favorites with local influence.
