What's for Lunch? Luardo's

Londonist asks that most pressing of daily concerns: where to go on your lunch break.


Whitecross St EC1Y


Expect to Pay: around £5

Rating: 7 out of 10

Strolling along Whitecross Street a few weeks ago, we happened upon a little lime green van with a chalkboard menu listing fajitas, burritos, and quesadillas for sale. Unfortunately, Simon, the bloke inside the van, was done slinging burritos for the day and wouldn’t be back for another week at which time we eagerly returned for a delish and filling chorizo burrito with hot sauce for only £5. As mentioned by Dos Hermanos back in early June, Luardo’s is a very “welcome new addition” to this street where City workers and Old St hipsters almost collide. Indeed, we very much look forward to sampling more of Luardo’s Tex-Mex items soon.

It’s easy enough to recommend Luardo’s for lunch, but we wouldn’t suggest making a special journey. From what we gathered, there’s the off chance that Simon and his van could be away feeding hungry attendees at festivals during the summer months. However, if you find yourself around Whitecross St at lunchtime during the week, definitely have a peek to see if the van is there. Your taste buds will be glad you did.
