Where: Old Spitalfields Market, E1
Fast food may see your stomach full minutes after parting with your pennies, but it is often a disappointment. Nothing could be further from the truth at Micha Fine Foods on the edge of Old Spitalfields Market.
We could smell it before we saw it. Intrigued, we turned the corner to find a variety of amazing looking food all laid out immaculately. From pasta to pies, soups to salads, they boast a wealth of choices many with a Mediterranean theme. You’ll also find falafel, kofta and the ingenious bread bowls – a clever cocktail of pasta, sauce and freshly-baked bread casing. In fact, it was a tough decision to choose from the plethora of options on show.
I went for the fajita wrap. Sounds a little mundane, but this was a fajita with a difference – gone was the thin tortilla casing, replaced with grilled flat bread. The simple substitution made such a difference; every mouthful was a delight. Despite the toasting of the flat bread on the outside, the chicken was beautifully moist on the inside. Ruth had the Crispy Chicken Wrap, complete with sweet chilli sauce, and was soon joining me in a chorus of superlatives.
Verdict: Amazing. Best fast food in a while and certainly the best fajita I have ever had. At £3.50 it left my stomach full without emptying my pocket. Will definitely be going back to try some of the other amazing looking grub on offer.
