Cundall & Garcia, Spitalfields, London
Welcome to Cundall & Garcia
We're open weekdays 10-4pm & Saturdays 12-5pm
Welcome to Cundall & Garcia. We like to think of ourselves as a 'village shop in the City' where you can grab a home-cooked dish of the day, a salad box or a sandwich made to order, a cup of slow-brewed Monmouth filter coffee and a homemade Scotch egg for later.
Every weekday we cook daily lunch specials in our kitchen upstairs. Along with our special sandwich or salad box - always something a bit indulgent, like pulled pork and spicy coleslaw or roast chicken with herb stuffing - we also make a dish of the day which may be a traditional pie or an old-school surprise such as poached salmon with parsley sauce or a hearty venison casserole.
See our Twitter feed for the week's menu.

Homemade Scotch eggs
Royal grocer Fortnum & Mason claim to have invented Scotch eggs in the 18th Century. From such majestic beginnings they have become a rather nasty supermarket snack food but proper homemade Scotch eggs are a revelation.
We make them fresh every weekday (unless we're making homemade sausage rolls - but that's another story). A free-range boiled egg is encased in seasoned sausage meat, rolled in breadcrumbs and deep-fried. They are satisfying, truly delicious and have a loyal (some might say fanatic) following - we sell dozens a day. Try it cut in half with a dollop of hot English mustard.
If you can't get to the shop, or we've sold out (an all too common occurance), what about making your own? Our recipe is on the Cooking page.
Provisions on our shelves
'Beautiful Flavour, Delicious Rich Cup' it says on the tin and we can only agree. A strong but smooth full-bodied blended tea made from loose East African leaves.
A firm favourite, customers buy tins and tins of it, sometimes so much we wonder how they can possibly drink it all.
For those of you who love the tin but love the tea more, we now have the handy refill packs, ideal to top-up your tin with.
This week, we're cooking:
You can choose the daily special as a sandwich or as a salad box:
Monday special: Honey-glazed Cumberland sausages, mustard and watercress. Dish of the day: Chilli con carne with rice and soured cream.
Tuesday special: Beef burger with homemade barbecue sauce. Dish of the day: Chicken and leek pie with minted peas.
Wednesday special: Roast chicken with sage and onion stuffing. Dish of the day: Duck and chorizo rice with braised greens.
Thursday special: Pulled pork and spicy coleslaw. Dish of the day: Salmon fishcakes with green beans and homemade tartare sauce.
Friday special: Roast chicken breast, homemade mayonnaise and rocket. Dish of the day: Cottage pie with minted peas.

You can pre-order your sandwich, salad box or dish of the day and beat the queue. Please phone 020 7247 2487 before 11.30am with your order.
In true Cundall & Garcia style, we present a rather special salad bar during weekday lunchtimes. Like our sandwich fillings and dish of the day, everything is prepared from fresh ingredients each morning in our kitchen upstairs.
You can add the special filling of the day to your salad box or any of the meats, cheeses, smoked salmon, pies or a Scotch egg from the deli cabinet. Alternatively, go light and just have the salad.
Plain mixed & dressed salad £5.00
Add a filling for £2.00
We're renowned for our daily special.
Essentially a meal between two slices of bread, we cram them to bursting point with fillings such as pulled pork & spicy slaw, roast chicken with herb stuffing or homemade fish-fingers with tartare sauce...there is a different one each weekday and they are served from the back of the shop from 12pm.
Hold the bread? We offer the daily special as a salad box, with a selection of cooked & dressed vegetables.
£6.00 with sauces and salad
£7.00 salad box
Dish of the Day
During the week we cook a dish of the day - it might be a traditional pie, kedgeree, roast chicken & potato gratin or the occasional old-school surprise such as a poached salmon with parsley sauce or Toad-in-the-hole with mash & gravy.
All our daily specials are on Twitter. Follow us to find out what's cooking.
Dish of the day from £7.50
