Recent graduate, Londoner - known to pick up a pen and paper from time to time...
Published September 29th 2012
Having recently moved back to London after a stint up North, I must admit I am finding it hard to readjust to the unspoken but clearly evident, M25 price tag. That is, until I discovered Pod Food. I popped in one day, looking for somewhere to sit and have a coffee for an hour or so, and from the outside it looked warm and inviting. My white Americano tasted rich and strong, with good quality coffee beans and with change from a 2 coin. I spied their range of colourful and healthy looking food in the fridge, as well as the porridge mentioned on the back of the free loyalty card, and promised myself I would come back to try more of their products.

Not too long after, on a particularly grey and rainy London autumnal day, I found myself once again in the area, and this time in need of a more substantial meal. I opted for the mini Thai green chicken curry, which was fresh-tasting and absolutely delicious, perfect for a light dinner and very reasonably priced at around 3.50.

The staff are friendly and helpful, the ingredients are organic and fair-trade, and there is a strong 'green' ethos running throughout the company it seems, such as the three recycling bins and 100% compostable cutlery used.

I was desperate to find a peaceful, inexpensive place to hang out and eat in, and I think I may have found it. Good news for me and even better news for my stomach and bank balance. I am already planning my next visit I'm thinking a smoothie and porridge for breakfast one day soon.
