Burger bargain

And there’s more burger action to be had next week; Byron will be selling its whole range for just 25p each on Tuesday. It’s part of a promotion to kick off their partnership with the One Feeds Two initiative, which will see them donate the price of a school meal to children in developing countries for every burger from the specials menu they sell. Back home, just sign up to the Byron club for free before 9am on Tuesday to claim your midweek bargainous burger.

This long-time vegetarian favourite remains a top choice for Sohoites who long to lunch healthily and cheaply. The food comes in small, medium or large cartons – most diners will be more than happy with medium (£6.20). Choose a mix of tasty salads and hot dishes (there’s ten of each), on display behind the counter. Hot stalwarts include a curry of the day, lentil and mushroom shepherd’s pie, and mini ‘sausage’ rolls. Salads feature careful dressing; dilled coleslaw is zingy and creamy, quinoa tabouleh pleasingly nutty. And if your sweet tooth starts aching, a ‘cluster’ (chocolate, coconut and Rice Krispies, £1.80) will cure it faster than you can say ‘brown rice’.


Meal for two with drinks and service: around £18.
