Food, coffees and treats on the go
With so much green space to be enjoyed around King’s Cross, it makes for the perfect plan to grab something to go and enjoy it within the leafy parks and squares dotted around the neighbourhood. Check out the full list of places offering takeaway below.
The King’s Cross outpost of the legendary Soho deli opened in 1944 by a formidable woman named Lina. Housed in a beautiful old brick building on Stable Street, all in that signature mint green.
Pick up the same freshly cooked pasta, aromatic cheeses, and cured meats as the restaurant, or sample the finest quality salumi or formaggi filled panini chosen to order from the deli display. Or, equally delicious, choose from a daily selection of fresh and fabulous salads. Think sumptuous combinations like roasted broccoli with chilli and sunflower seeds; tuna with green beans, Tropea onion and egg; or Datterini tomato, bocconcini and basil.
This Lower Stable Street takeaway is owned and run by a team of Japanese foodies dedicated to bringing the most authentic Japanese version of curry to hungry Londoners. Its signature curries are made from scratch with a secret blend of spices.
There are only three dishes on the menu, making it the perfect spot for a quick lunch. Choose from beef, chicken or vegan, all served with sticky rice and an in-house fermented garnish.
Beer + Burger Store
A great spot for a quality burger and equally tasty sides – not to mention the beer. Find it on York Way.
Choose from four burgers that you order at-counter, fast-food style. Alongside the usual suspects of cheeseburgers and buttermilk chicken (that all come with a dollop of their signature goop sauce), there’s a a special monthly ‘guest’ burger.
BAO King’s Cross
Inspired by Japanese tea houses, Bao King’s Cross on Pancras Square serves up iconic BAO steamed buns, rice boxes, delicious desserts from the very first BAO Bakery Goods counter and Bubble Dream drinks.
