Expect to Pay: Around £3 for a sandwich
Blech. We thought we were doing ourselves a favour (or choosing the least harmful of a handful of sorry options) when we slid into Camden Food Co's Liverpool Street Station franchise on the run and desperate for a spot of lunch. But a few bites into our corned beef, cheddar and pickle sandwich (for only £2.89) and we knew we were no better off than if we had grabbed a pasty from West Cornwall Pasty Co (which we quite like) just outside the station or even something from, say the M&S or McDonald's (neither of which we can really stand). Despite all the rigmarole about “eating right” that CFC goes on about with their packaging, in-store displays and on their website, the fact is that the food’s just not tasty and seems to be a re-configuration of the same-old-shit. Oh well, can't win 'em all.
