Now this is what we call a packed lunch. Etsu’s bento boxes (only available at lunchtime) are the city’s best square meal.

Compartmentalised boxes of fresh tempura, pork loin braised in ginger, sashimi sushi, salmon or sirloin – all for under a tenner.

They’ll all arrive with rice, salad and stir fry, sauces – spicy, fruity, umami… and, hey, what’s to stop you having a cheeky Sake?

Swift service, cool toilets (yeah, we notice these things) and, what, five minutes from your office? Etsu offers an eastern take on fast food that our hearts will thank us for.
