5 Restaurants You Can Go To For A Casual Lunch Date

1.   VAPIANO

What you should order:

Pomodoro Pastawith Cheese of your choice (unless you have allergies). You can choose the level of spiciness, and order bread on the side for FREE w/ or w/o butter.

Why you should order:

It’s single handedly the best pasta I have tried, its quite filling and it costs under £15. I suggest you try their Ice Lemonade too.

2.   Tas Restaurant Waterloo

What you should order:

Lahmacun(Turkish pizza) with a side salad & Ayran.

Why you should order:

The restaurant offers many delicious dishes containing meat, however they have a selection of vegetarian options too. Although it’s quite busy, there will always be a table for people who just want to pop by.

3.   The Diner

What you should order:

Veggie Hot Dog with a side of cheesy fries & Coke.

Why you should order:

The hot dog is great, and full of flavor (especially if topped up with sauces). The breakfast menu is absolutely incredible too. I recommend trying the chips smothered in fried onion and cheese sauce too because those will just blow your mind.

4. Nando’s Southwark Arches

½ Chicken with 2 regular sides and a drink.  

Why you should order:

Nando’s is always a good idea for a casual lunch date. With more than enough chicken options, and their delicious piri piri sauce, who can say no? The wraps are also quite good, and I suggest trying their extremely hot chicken wings.

Why you should order:

The Breakfast Club is by far the best breakfast restaurant I have ever been to. The pancakes are to die for, and their portions are filling. The Veggie All American costs £11, which isn’t a bad price at all.
