You won't be surprised to hear that to the Wriggle Team, the main thing about Christmas is the food. Nothing signals the festive season quite like all the delicious food we can eat, no questions asked. Chocolate for breakfast? Sure! 3-Course dinner on a week night? Why the hell not! This Wriggle is perfect for satisfying all those cosy, warming cravings we have when the weather turns: three stunning courses of fabulously fancy French cuisine. Yum.

Gone in a bit hard on the festive drinks already? Never fear: a good breakfast will sort you out right away. Head on over to Parc Deli (it's just near Vicky Park – so you can even go for a restorative walk around in the fresh air afterwards) and indulge in a proper breakfast, a good cuppa coffee, and you'll be right as rain.

When it's this horrible outside, what you really need is something to warm you right through, from the inside out. Mezza Luna's hearty tagines are the perfect dish for the job: great big portions of comforting, cosy, slow-cooked goodness that are as tasty as they are filling. If you're a bit of a meat fiend, their flame-grilled kebabs aren't to be missed either. Unusually for the grill houses on City Road, you can buy alcohol at Mezza Luna, so sit back, get a few drinks in and relax. This is happy food!
