Not sure of the best place to put food in your face?


1. Giant Robot’s New Traders

Crossrail Place, E14 OK, so you’ve booked a 2am train home for Christmas to save £4.20. How to spend the massive wad now burning a hole in your pocket? Get yourself down to Street Feast’s Giant Robot for the two new traders joining Yum Bun and Thunderbird. Laffa’s on a Levantine vibe – hummus with slow cooked lamb etc – and Burger and Beyond is debuting its exclusive Bacon Butty Burger. And friend, this is a monster. The ting goes… two beef patties with burnt butter mayo and crispy pancetta!

2. Bad Egg

1 Ropemaker St, EC2. Today Hello, then, to “Crunch”. Christmas brunch. A load of festive dishes with bottomless booze – Christmas burger (beef patty with roast beef and horseradish), turkey hash, the buffalo turkey bun.

3. Corazón

29 Poland Street, W1. Today Right, be quick. Between 12pm–4pm Corazón celebrates its first birthday by giving away 250 fish tacos. The price is SO right.

4. The Spirit Show
