Beit El Zaytoun - On The Go
Although we wish this Knightsbridge takeaway spot had somewhere other than four stools and a window-facing counter to sit, we’d still go out of our way for one of their excellent sandwiches. It’s an offshoot of Beit El Zaytoun, one of our favourite Lebanese restaurants, and the menu has some classic Lebanese wraps—our go-to are the tahini-heavy beef shawarma or the cheesy taouk number. There are also some less traditional, but arguably more tasty, subs like the Philly cheesesteak-inspired ‘Philadelphia’. The sandwich spot is located right by Hyde Park so if the weather is looking good, it’s the ideal grab and go picnic. The cupboard-sized space gets busy on weekends, so you might have to fight your way through people waiting for their takeaway sandwiches to the self-ordering kiosk, but it’s worth the short wait.
