The area around oxford street is peppered with little places to go for lunch giving office workers have a wealth of choice. You can almost go to a new place everyday...and yesterday I did. Leon serves fast healthy food to the masses in Carnaby Street (they have other locations). It's an interesting mix of food, from stews to salads, strawberry mousse to smoothies, there's something on the menu for everyone. I had:
Free range chicken served with broccoli, baby spinach, toms, peas, alfalfa, quinoa, seeds rocket and aioli.
The chicken was nicely grilled, still warm when I got back to my desk, and the different veg in the salad made for a interesting eating experience. The service was fast and efficient and we only had to wait a few minutes to be served.
The only complaint I have is that for the portion size it's quite expensive. At £5.50, it's not cheap and it barely makes a dent in your stomach, making you prone to a mid afternoon snack. Judging by the boxes that my co-workers had they had the same small portions. If you're looking for a healthy snack (and don't mind paying) it's not too bad.
