Beboz is a fast food lunchtime favourite, offering a relaxed atmosphere, wholesome, healthy food, great coffee and speedy service. And with freshly made pizzas for under a fiver - you’d be hard pushed to find a cheaper (or tastier) lunch in this part of the City. As well as piping hot authentic Italian pizza, the menu features generously filled wraps, pasta bowls lathered in creamy parmesan basil pesto, and delicious make-your-own salad bowls. I swung in on my lunch break to get a taste of the action…
You’ll find Beboz opposite City Thameslink, or a six minute-or-so stroll from Chancery Lane station. It’s contemporary and industrial in style, with high stools and canteen style tables, dotted with basil plants and olive oil bottles, and a long deil counter brimming with fresh ingredients. You’re likely to see a queue before you see the menu, but it moves quickly and -spoiler - is definitely worth it.
I parked myself on a high stool and got chatting with owner, Najib, whose passion for his business and for great food is infectious. It sounds like he’s giving the many chains in the area some stiff competition.
The idea behind Beboz is simple: fast food that’s fresh and flavoursome. First you choose a base - be it a salad bowl, Italian wrap, a pasta bowl or fresh Italian bread, and then add a filling, four deli toppings and a sauce or dressing. I opted for a crispy chicken fillet and grilled seasonal veg salad, finished with creamy parmesan basil pesto, sun dried tomatoes, olives, avocado and red onion. They certainly don’t scrimp on the fillings or toppings here!
Najib and I chatted while I inhaled my salad, which was generously portioned, ridiculously tasty and a great combination of flavours - if I do say so myself! But it was the creamy parmesan basil pesto that was the star of the show for me, which made every bite just so moreish.
With so many deli items to choose from, Beboz is the kind of place you could eat at every day and never get bored - especially with a tasty 20% off the final bill with a Portico Places card!
