And let’s face it, they’re a damned good pick-me-up when you’re stuck at home, missing the halcyon days of Friday night drinks and dinner with friends. But what to get?

Döner Summer’s 100% vegan Berliner Kebabs are a must-try. They have loads of options, but if you want something mind-blowingly awesome, try The Korean Teller. Inspired by the Berlin street food craze of Korean-style fried chicken, they take a pile of chips, fresh from the fryer, and load them with vegan chick’n marinated in ginger and five spice. Add pickled cabbage, kimchee mayo, cucumber, daikon, spring onion and sesame seeds for an epic lockdown feast.

The Jerk BBQ Plate

Every day, The Flava Hut fires up its jerk pan, sending those mouthwatering aromas up and out into the atmosphere as they cook up a never-ending supply of utter Caribbean deliciousness. The jerk chicken is an absolute must, of course, but why stop there? Those succulent skewers of prawns and oh-so flakey salmon are just as good. Couple it with freshly fried chips for an almighty feast.

You can get an Indian street food feast delivered to your door from Cat’s Pyjamas. This particular dinner is designed for sharing, so you order a mass of dishes and tuck in, but whatever you do, make sure you get the Pani Puri. These little deep-fried crepes are round and hollow, which means they can fill them with all kinds of goodies. We’re talking tamarind chutney, chilli, chaat masala, potato, onion, chickpeas and flavoured water. You might want to double-up that order.

The Picanha Steak Sandwich

Carnivores rejoice, for Bread & Butter BBQ is serving all kinds of meaty goodness, including this almighty steak sarnie. The cap of rump has a layer of fat that infuses the tender meat with flavour and gives it a silky smooth texture. They cook it rare, carve it up and pile it into a toasted bread bun, then add fresh tomatoes, green leaves and a splash of balsamic, alongside their homemade herb butter, so you’re onto a winner.
