How is that we get stuck in a rut when it comes to lunch? It probably all boils down to the fact that we're creatures of habit – it's easy to get stuck in a routine. Perhaps it's time to shake up lunch in London: we're in one of the most vibrant cities on the planet, with the cuisines of the world being cooked on every street and around every corner. A wrap makes for a great lunchtime option; big enough to be filling but also convenient to hold, whether you decide to enjoy it walking and eating or sitting at your desk. Take a look at five different wraps that could reboot your London lunch.
1. Soujok and Egg Wrap
Lebanese cuisine has always offered an amazing selection of flatbreads filled with exciting flavours. One we'd never heard of until recently was the combination of lamb sausage and scrambled eggs – one of the speciality wraps at Lazeez Lebanese Tapas. Served with a portion of fries on the side, this is definitely one to try!
A midday Mexican lunch from Freebird Burritos will make a great change from a workaday sandwich that you might have brought into the office. Though they have plenty of meaty options on the menu, their vegetarian burrito is no slouch when it comes to flavour! It's loaded with sautéed peppers and onions, black beans, cheese and sour cream. Fresh salsa and guacamole add to the taste sensations crammed into this veggie tortilla.
3. Mount Olympus Wild Boar Sausage wrap
Just the name draws you in – and the Mount Olympus Wild Boar Sausage wrap at Suvlaki in Soho will not disappoint. As with any souvlaki meat, it is marinated before being grilled on a skewer. The intensely-flavoured meat is complemented with creamy smoked aubergine and slaw, with everything nestled inside a convenient-to-hold wrap.
4. Goan Peri Peri Wrap
We don't tend to think of wraps being a part of Indian food, but luckily for us, the guys at Spice Fusion Express came up with the idea and added some speciality wraps to their menu. Our top pick is the Goan Peri Peri Chicken wrap, where the peri peri is wrapped in a naan bread, with additional toppings such as mint and tamarind sauce, pickled cucumber and salad. A tasty and satisfying combination to make any lunchtime one that's out of the ordinary.
5. Falafel with Fried Cauliflower
Veggies can rejoice this lunchtime in London, as another fantastic meat-free option has made it onto our list of must-try wraps. It's from Baalbaki's and features deep-fried falafel made from beans and herbs along with cauliflower. Parsley, tahini, pickles and tomatoes are added to seal the deal and the result? Well, a great Lebanese lunchtime treat to keep you on your feet and raring to go until dinner.
