London neighbourhood guide: Best lunch in Shoreditch | City Pantry

Discover the best lunch spots in Shoreditch and get them delivered to your office with City Pantry. 

Let's face it, Shoreditch is spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants. 

A creative hotbed that nudges up against the centre of London, Shoreditch is packed to the brim with food from all over the world. But with so many exciting restaurants in Spitalfields, Old Street and beyond, it can be almost impossible to decide where to go for lunch in Shoreditch. And that's where we come in. 

From salt beef sandwiches to Korean bao buns and New-York style slices, these are some of the best lunches in Shoreditch. And as a bonus, you can even skip the queues and order some of these Shoreditch restaurants straight to your office with City Pantry.


The Athenian

City Pantry - Lunch in Shoreditch - The Athenian

Ever considered moving to Greece? No? Well, after one bite of the traditional souvlaki from The Athenian, you'll be booking your flight in no time at all. 

Serving Greece's most popular street food - a soft flatbread stuffed with tender meats, zesty sauces and rosemary chips - to the hungry East London masses from Box Park, The Athenian might just be one of our favourite lunch spots in Shoreditch.

And the best bit? You can forget about braving the lunch rush to get a taste of this souvlaki. That's because City Pantry deliver The Athenian straight to your Shoreditch office instead. Sorted.

On The Bab

City Pantry - Lunch in Shoreditch - On The Bab

If you want tasty Korean food that's sure to spice up your lunch hour, look no further than On The Bab. 

The menu at this Old Street restaurant features Korean-style chicken in spicy sauce and steamed, meat-stuffed buns that you won't forget about in a hurry. That's for sure. The plates at On The Bab come thick and fast so you're likely to be in and out in hour, making this an ideal spot for a quick lunch. Just remember though, it's a no-bookings place and the queues form early. Very early. 


Beigel Bake

City Pantry - Lunch in Shoreditch - Beigel Bake

There's no doubt about it - Beigel Bake on Brick Lane is a complete London institution. And any London list worth its salt beef would always include them in the best lunch category. 

An absolute go-to for lunch in Shoreditch, we're not sure we've ever had anything better than the salt beef and mustard bagel from Beigel Bake. It's delicious, filling and all under a fiver. Perfect.


Homeslice

City Pantry - Lunch in Shoreditch - Homeslice

Neapolitan-style pizza may be the standard in London, but Homeslice is far from your standard pizza place.

Serving supersized 20-inch pizzas with some of the most creative and outrageous toppings you've ever seen, Homeslice are known for making some of the best pizza the capital has ever seen. So picking up a couple of slices from their Old Street restaurant is one of the better ways to spend your lunch hour in Shoreditch, but if you're looking to bring a few whole pizzas back to the office? 

Don't haul those 20-inch pizzas all the way back to your door. Order Homeslice from City Pantry instead. After one taste of the chorizo, corn and coriander pizza, you definitely won't regret it.
