Lunch, Lunch or Lunch…

I am officially jealous of those who work in the Mooregate gate area of London who have easy access to this lunch time Market year round. When Chuck offered to share with me her favorite felafel lunch spot I was happy to ramble my way across London and meet her at the Whitecross Market.

The market contains about twenty little food stores (and the odd shop stocking batteries, random wires etc) that cover just about every genre of food you can imagine. We walked past curries, tacos, noodles, steaming dishes of Paella, piles of cous cous, roast sarnies and of course the falafel stand.


We joined the back of the queue that snaked around the side of this busy but well organized operation and listened to the people in front place their orders. And you thought Starbucks was confusing! We settled on small falafel wraps (don’t let that fool you these were marvelously decent in size) with salad, peppers and a little chili (well only I ordered the chili).

The team serving us were friendly and mentioned the also serve their ‘yummy grub’ (this said by the guy behind me) at a local community centre as well. Lucky community. We grabbed our rolled pitas and heard over to Finsbury Park to soak up the sunshine and eat our lunch. The falafels were delicious, crunchy with a super fresh salad and the giant peppers were the perfect addition.


Fingers crossed Melbourne gets something like Whitecross Market too!

The Market is located on Whitecross St and is open Monday – Friday, 10am to 3pm.
