When your friend is going through a phase of taking the stairs instead of the lift, or going on a “hike” in Richmond Park, head to The Cheeky Pea. A kind of healthy little hummus and falafel bar on Eden Walk, this is the kind of place you stumble across on a lunchtime search for a falafel wrap, and end up discovering a menu full of some really, really great Mediterranean food. You can fill wraps and pittas with freshly made falafel, halal Moroccan-style chicken, and sabich. They’ve also got salad bowls and great hummus bowls with things like fava beans or, our favourite, garlic mushrooms.
