One of my all-time favourite lunch spots, this hits the hungry spot like many other outrageously priced Spitalfields offerings totally fail to do.

Each day this exquisitely East London hole-in-the-wall deli cooks up their special meat offering (sometimes roast chicken, sometimes pulled pork for example) and you can choose to have it served in the mother of all sandwiches or atop a hefty salad in a box. The box is only a couple of quid more and has a brick-like weight to it, full of steamed new potatoes and crunchy broccoli, homemade coleslaw and mayonnaise dolloped as sides that are included in the price. 

The staff are always smiling and efficient, the walls are lined with shelves of tempting locally-sourced goods that you'll want to splash out on for your own kitchen. If the mighty salad box is too much for your current hankering then perhaps a posh Scotch Egg or a slice of freshly baked cake will sort you out.

If the business taxes that owner Jeanette Winterson fretted about in the Evening Standard earlier this year are to be taken seriously then the closure of this impressive local is something we should all be worried about.
