Food For Thought

31 Neal Street London WC2H 9PR

Thanks to its sure-fire formula – serving tasty and varied vegetarian food at decent prices – Food For Thought has been a Covent Garden mainstay for almost forty years. They don’t take bookings, so arrive at the midday peak and you may well have to wait in line. Most of those ahead of you are likely to be local office workers, however, picking up healthy lunches to take back to work, so you’ve a good chance of bagging one of the simple tables downstairs. The takeaway counter faces the front door, and there’s always a chef preparing some appetising treat right under your nose. Exact offerings vary day to day, ranging from chickpea tagine, through Malaysian and Indian curries, to stir-fried vegetables, as well as salads like beetroot and quinoa. There’s always a soup, plus vegan and gluten-free options, and they bake delicious scones, quiches and cakes.
