If you are looking for an inexpensive meal in London, but want to veer away from the fast food chains and kebab shops that are found in almost every shopping street in the city, you don’t have to compromise on quality to get a good meal. Here are a few suggestions for restaurants in London to find tasty meals that won’t break the bank.
F. Cooke’s Pie And Mash
If you’re looking for traditional London fare, the infamous pie and mash that has been the backbone of the British diet for centuries is calling your name. This restaurant, located on Hoxton Road, is a great place to go. Don’t be fooled by the offer of “liquor”—it’s a tasty parsley gravy!
Yes, there are many cheaper burgers available in London, but not all are made from authentic local butcher beef, and served with bacon, homemade relish and a pickle to top it off! This is truly a tasty burger. Served with homemade chips, this is a great meal for under £10.
Berwick Street Market
Home to a variety of takeaway stalls ranging from pizza and burgers to burritos and Vietnamese cuisine, you may have to fight through the crowds of office workers to get to some of the best stalls at lunchtime. Luckily, as a tourist, you can take an early or late lunch and take your time making your choices.
Persian cuisine may not be the most common option for cheap food, but the range of food here is great and the fresh bread and kebabs are highlights. You can also bring your own booze, which makes this an even cheaper evening dining option after a long day out on the town.
Fish In A Tie
Just behind the Clapham Junction train station, this restaurant offers a menu that changes daily depending on what is available from the local fish markets. With a Sunday roast for £6 and a set menu for £10, this definitely won’t burn a hole in your wallet.
Before you set out on your London journey, be sure to keep these dining options in mind! You’ll be happy to indulge in different flavours without spending too much money, so you can make the most of your journey in the UK.
