"Break your lunchtime rut"Review Rating: Reviewed by Laurel
It’s all too easy to get stuck in a lunchtime rut, particularly when you have approximately 10 minutes each day to get some fresh air, locate food [i]and[/i] consume it… I for one have probably sampled everything on the Pret menu a dozen times over and I have to say the discovery of a new lunch spot is enough to leave me jumping for joy.
Which is why I couldn’t wait to try Seven Dials’ new Fafa’s, a Finnish chain that launched its first site in London this summer offering delicious fresh pitas, wraps and salads. Ingredients are fresh and of the highest quality, falafels are crisp and moist and the menu has enough delicious dishes to offer a good few weeks of new lunch discoveries.
I plumped for the Fafa’s burger pita, delicately spiced lamb, juicy and succulent, with a hearty helping of chunky salad. Harissa sauce gave it a satisfying flavour kick and the gluten free wrap wasn’t too heavy - nothing worse than a post-prandial carb coma… A side of halloumi fries were crispy and gorgeously gooey, with a tangy tzatziki dip. I might have only tried two of the dishes on the menu (oh, and a couple of free samples of falafel…) but damn, they were good. With such wholesome tasty grub around the corner, my days courting Pret are numbered.
