• LOVE FOOD, LIVE FOODIE •
Everyone is on the go.
There is no time to eat in and relax at lunch during the working week. The rat race has at stages rendered lunch as just something to keep us going. People get the same lunch from the same place and that way avoid any complicated decisions and continue their working day. One problem with all of this is that eating in the office also works out that be cheaper too. Eating In adds a service charge and no one wants that, esepcially when you can go back to the office and browse the web.
Nowadays when the options are so varied and so tasty, we need to make sure that lunch is not all about sustenance but it is a pleasure. The chains have stepped their game up and offer enough options for you to have something different every day.
Even better now is that more and more independents are opening and providing great options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. With this the delight is that is in built with the busy workers in mind. The takeaway option is perfect for you to choose exactly what you like with no need to suffer with flavour. It is not an option of flavour vs convenience, instead both are there for you in abundance. The food markets have led the way. Stalls or trucks have given foodies and the people great food to take away with them and do whatever they like.
Some examples of the markets and great independents are in Covent Garden. Startisans in Shelton street allow up and coming food traders to sell their goods to the thousands of office workers. Everyday different traders show up for lunch time. These range from duck rolls, to crepes; paella and jerk chicken, pasta and Ethipoan food and for those with a sweet tooth they have pastries, sweets and cakes.
Nearby on Neal Street, The Bowler has rocked up and offers meat balls in takeaway boxes with rice and slaw or balls in wraps. The amazing flavours here are married perfectly with those who need there lunch on the go. Stuffed in a box and off i am to eat in the office.
Other examples could be Bleecker Burger which went from a roaming van to a permanent site in Old Spitalfields market. Put the food in the box and the foodies will love it. What is important to note is that you need to put Good Food first. Make it convenient too and everyone will be happy.
