If you get excited about posh street food, meet Schmaltz in Broadgate Circus, which imports extra special chickens from France that probably lived a life of luxury and taste all the better for it. If the pricey poke bowls and fancy dim sum aren’t doing quite enough to command a fraction of your bonus, head to their fancy van for a quality chicken sandwich served in a bun whose shape they’ve patented (it fits the chicken perfectly), a burger made with minced chicken fat, or a noodle soup that comes with some ravioli-esque items. The queue here gets pretty long at lunchtime and the portions aren’t huge, but there’s a real emphasis on quality and you’re guaranteed a solid meal every time here.
