Lina Stores, Soho

I love Soho.

The bustling streets flanked by big old buildings.

People shout, rush, meander and loiter. It’s a maze of little roads and a thriving businesses of every kind.

Camera stores sit comfortably next to patisseries. Startups rub shoulders with sex shops, and movie makers neighbour talent agencies.

Chances are if you do business in London, you’ll need to venture into Soho.

And if you’re in the area you have to stay for lunch.

With some of London’s finest restaurants within spitting distance, it’d just be rude not to!

Of course if you work in Soho you already know all of this.

You’re spoiled for choice when it comes to where to spend your lunch break.

But even though you might have walked past this place a thousand times, you may have missed a trick.  Follow me.

All hand made, naturally.

Take your pick, and chef Gianni will cook it up for you.

You can choose two or three varieties per serving.

I thoroughly recommend the pumpkin. The artichoke and truffle. And the n’duja.

But you really can’t go wrong!

Leave your order with Gianni, and take a seat.
