It's advertised exactly how it is: a quick pit-stop on the way to your journey, but to my utter surprise Kwik Stop newsagents and sandwich bar is an overlooked shop that does more than cereals, drinks and confectionery.
On a recent lunch break I popped in, looking for a quick bite because my boxed lunch had left me hungry. Hoping for a bottle of water and perhaps a pot of yoghurt I saw their underwhelming 'sandwich bar'. Amongst the sandwiches, samosa and sweet pastry were chicken skewers priced at £1.30 each. I couldn't believe the value for money.
A whole chicken breast squeezed on to a wooden skewer for less than £2.00 is unheard of in the city centre, and considering we were about a ten-minute walk from the heart of the city, it was unbeatable value.
The two varieties include roast, and tikka chicken; I ordered both. £2.60 lighter, and for lunch that is unbeatable in town, and with a filling source of protein in my handbag I was looking forward to what appeared to be flavoursome pieces of meat. As I tucked in I couldn't have been happier, both types were succulent, juicy and well-seasoned. Even the plain roast chicken was delicious.
Kwik Stop is a newsagents that sell stereotypical newsagents goods. You will find popular cereals, soups, milk, tinned goods, sweets, cigarettes, newspapers and magazines. They've only been open two months, but taking into account the proximity to town and surrounding offices I'd be surprised if they weren't the go-to shop for quick bites, they are called Kwik Stop, after all.
