Our first food truck has found a permanent home at Flat Iron Square, an excellent new street food market near London bridge, along with bars, restaurants and live music.

Our food is inspired by the cooking of the Eastern Mediterranean, packed full of flavour and delicious, fresh ingredients.

I tried the halloumi and aubergine salad box and delightfully surprised at how tasty it was. Goo dserving size, friendly service and the sauce was full of flavour. Flat iron square is a cute little market place so be sure to check this out and grab some decent Mediterranean food while you are there.

My friend and I enjoyed some delicious mediterranean wraps from Laffa, a street food truck at Flat Iron Square over this Bank Holiday weekend. I liked that this food and flea market is located near the London Bridge tube station, but away from the crowds of Borough Market. It's nestled on the road just behind, has a small open space at the entrance for the flea market and has a couple of food trucks on the outside. Upon entering the 'food arch', you'll find more eateries and seating spaces. 


The menu at Laffa isn't extensive, which I appreciated because this made it easy to make a decision on what to order. We hesitated between the two options that they had that day: the Lemon Chicken Za’tar and the Aubergine & Halloumi. At first we thought we’d get one of each and do a 50/50 so we could try both flavours but then we realised that they did a combo with both flavours in a single wrap, so we both went for that option.


The man and woman manning the truck were super friendly and chatty, which was nice as we waited for our wraps to be prepared. It didn’t take very long to prepare the wraps, which I think we both really appreciated because we were pretty hungry already. We could smell the grilled chicken from afar and were quite excited to dig into the wraps.


Firstly, the wrap was really packed with ingredients making it worth its price. I would definitely come back to have them, even without a voucher! 


Secondly, I liked that the wrap managed to stay in tack until the end without unravelling and without any liquid dripping out the other end! The wrap also didn’t get soggy, even up until the end. 


Thirdly, they were very generous with the amount of shredded chicken and halloumi that they put into the wraps. I could see and taste each and every ingredient, which I also appreciated. The salad in the wrap was dressed with a harissa sauce, which I thought was really good! It wasn’t too spicy but added a nice kick and edge to the flavours in the wrap.


Everything tasted amazing and the blend of ingredients and flavours was delicious! I would definitely recommend trying their wraps and hopefully they change their fillings from time to time so you can try out some other combinations. They had Lamb on the menu too but it wasn’t available the day we visited. I also liked that you could have it in a wrap or as a salad, to adjust for how hungry you are.


For my drink, I went for a Lemon St. Pellegrino. I’d never tried one before but always wanted to, as I see them around many takeaway joints. This is a rather refreshing drink with the sour edge from the lemon juice and the kick from the sparkling water. It went well with the wrap and helped to wash it down at the end.

A little gem in Flat Iron Square. One could be forgiven for thinking that a bright blue converted horse-box could get lost in one of London's bustling emergent foody hot-spots. However, Laffa's friendly charm, popularity and punchy flavours secure it prime position. We had combo wraps, a choice of lamb or chicken with spicy tahini sauce (their signature recipe), grilled aubergine and haloumi. Do it!
