A plougmans sandwich from Tesco, a tanroori chicken baguette from Greggs or even a New Yorker sandwich from Sainsbury’s. I ashamedly class myself as a connoisseur of the supermarket or bakery sandwich/wrap/baguette.

Whether it be a laziness to make my own sandwich, a need to get my food quickly or just plain habit, the big companies are making a mockery out of me with often boring lunchtime meals.

So it was on a whim last week when I decided to ditch my usual lunch destinations and head to Edna’s Kitchen in Castle Park, where the notice board and queue outside had aroused my curiosity.

Before going I checked out TripAdvisor, where the kiosk close to The Galleries has a 4.5 stars from 133 reviews, making it the ‘39th best’ place of quick bites in Bristol. The expectation was high, and fortunately the kitchen, which specialises in falafels, delivered.

First thing you notice is the menu. Listed on a black board outside the kiosk, it lists falafel pitas and wraps, ranging from £4.50 for a small to £8.50 for a wrap. You can also buy five falafels for £4.50 with hummus. Then there were halloumi wraps for £8.50 and mezze salad boxes, from £7.96 for a regular to £9.96 to a large.

Despite the kiosk’s speciality, I went for a halloui wrap. After queuing up for five minutes, I put in my order and requested.r extra jalapeno. ‘No problem’ said the friendly lady who took my card payment and pointed me toward the tables where I sat and enjoyed the view of Castle Park.

Soon the food served in paper wrapping was in my hand. It was flavoursome and generous in size with a few big chunks of cheese. Along with the extra jalapeno, there was hummus, olives, mint and salad. It was the best-tasting work lunch I’d had in months, and well worth the £8.50.

Farewell to the supermarket lunch, hello to Edna’s? Maybe a few times a month!
