They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but we all know that lunch is where the cravings kick in and you want something nutritious and delicious.
With the constraints of just an hour (we vote that London should have siestas like Spain), time is of the essence so here’s our noteworthy lunch spots, where you can grab and go!
Located in the oasis that is St Christopher’s Place, Cocochan is a Pan-Asian restaurant that offers a fantastic lunchtime deal with its Bento Box. Available every day from 12 – 3.30pm, choose from sushi, meat, seafood or vegetarian bento as well as a choice of soup too. Prices start from£13.50.
Filled with flavour Tortilla’s Burritos and Tacos are the perfect lunch time meal. Pick and choose your fillings to suit your mood (and hunger level). If you’re after something healthy, then the naked burrito is good option. Having been voted the best Mexican restaurant & take away, expect to find a queue at popular times, but the wait is worth it!
A new favourite, Hummus Bro’s use hummus as it core ingredient across its menu. From epic salad bowls lined with the tastiest hummus from £5.65 to its sweet potato falafel, salad and aubergine dip wrap for only £4.95, it’s all heavenly.

With a menu of innovative fillings like the Slow & Low Shoulder of Lamb and the Pastrami which is served with mushrooms and horseradish, rest assured this will become a regular lunch spot.
