Phileas Fogg managed to make it around the world in 80 days, but it is possible to do the same over lunchtime at Wrap it Up! – a gourmet wrap franchise that has been in business since 2006. With fillings inspired by countries from Mexico to the Caribbean, through Portugal, Lebanon and India, you can pick up a large, generously laden tortilla for £4.95. I went for the Mexican Burrito. If you want to mix it up a bit then you can go “cross country” and add other flavours to the existing choices.
I went to the one on Borough High Street, but they can be found in seven other locations across town including Holborn and Bishopgate. See the website for the full list.
Decent, quick food. The wraps are full to bursting, but I could have done with more of the guacamole and sour cream. The spice level was just right though. If you’re looking for a London Bridge lunch on Monday through Wednesday then definitely pop in and sample the wraps. If you’re hungry on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday, you’d be better off popping into nearby Borough Market as you can pick up better food for a similar price.
