    Franco is the place to be. Cheap and good. Avoid the queue around 12/1 definitely go for EL GRANDE. Accept cash and card... NEEEEXT?!

    Lunchtime food. Make sure you know what you want before you go in.

    El Grande: chicken escalope, ham, mozzarella and Sun dried tomato on a toasted ciabatta. Could be a bit bigger but not bad for £4.80

    A Shoreditch staple, avoid queues by visiting either side of the lunch hour. The Veg Special—a Spanish tortilla in a bap—with an extra smattering of mayo and Tabasco is a quick and dirty lunch treat.

    it is sad that they are Portuguese and pretend not to understand orders in their own language.

    This place is nuts. Utterly nuts. 328 different people serving at the same time, yet all somehow keep track of your order. Damn fine New York special if you can get your head round the organised chaos

    Bacon and egg bap in the morning can get addictive...

    lovely pasta. I mean really good. Can make you tired in the afternoon and the sandwiches aren't the best... more a winter place... Friendly but no nonsense
