Mayfair 1 is the type of place that a lot of Londoners rely on throughout the working week. It’s a little cupboard-sized lunchtime-only spot making satisfying wraps. A warm falafel number with the usual suspects: dressed cabbage salad, pickles, chilli, lettuce and the gang, will cost you under £5. As will a lamb kofte or sucuk (that delicious red spiced Turkish sausage) one. It’s very much a takeaway thing, but if you come pre or post rush, there are a few of stools to pop a squat if you fancy it.
