Purple Peanuts does excellent brown rice sushi ($2.50) – fresh, tightly wrapped nori rolls with added vitamin B. If that's too healthy for you, check out the Japanese take on a burger, a slab of fried chicken marinated in soy, ginger and sake and whacked in a Turkish bread bun ($10.50). The café is helpfully open into the early evening for late office workers and famished Virgin gym attendees. Spot it a tram stop away by the line out the door.
