When you’re walking through the streets of London, it’s easy to get caught up on the mystique of its streets, exhibitions, culture, and whatnot, but obviously, that’s likely to leave you exhausted and hungry. Also, traveling across the United Kingdom has never been precisely cheap, and you’re likely to be interested in saving your pennies for your tours and adventures rather than just putting some food on your belly. Therefore, we’ll help you out by letting you know about some of the cheapest places to eat in London:
There’s nothing more British than getting your day started with an old-fashioned English breakfast, and the Regency Cafe offers you the chance of doing just that for around £5.95. For those not familiar with the English breakfast, is a delicious mix of eggs, bacon, sausage, beans, bread, tomato, and coffee or tea. Also, you can have a cheap burger from around £2.6 to £3.5 or taste their noon menu for just £6.20.
The Beigel Bake is such a famous joint that it even has its own Wikipedia page. Still, they haven’t let that get to their heads, they haven’t lost their good old-fashioned taste and most importantly, their low prices. Serving over 7.000 beigels a day, this restaurant works non-stop 24 hours a day. For those who don’t know what a beigel is, it’s just a round piece of bread with a hole in the center, quite similar to a donut. You may have one at just £0.9, and the most expensive is just £1.60, so you won’t find many places cheaper than this one.
Battersea Pie Station
Established in Covent Garden, the Battersea Pie Station holds the secret for the best pie in London. Here, you can find some typical options like chicken and mushrooms, ground beef and onion, lamb and mint, but you can also find vegetarian options with pumpkin and sheep cheese. Also, you can have a pie for as little as £6, and they can throw in some extra mashed potatoes with gravy for just £3.
Indian Veg Bhel Poori
If you’re visiting London, you must catch a glimpse at their Indian heritage as well, and there’s no better place to do so than the Indian Veg Bhel Poori. Here, you can try their free buffet for as little as £7.95. If you do so, you’ll want to have a taste at their huge variety of rice, curries, and vegetarian dishes like the puri, pappadam, samosas, pakoras, and paneer (our personal favorite).
Poppies Fish & Chips
And obviously, you just can’t leave town without tasting one of their most famous dishes: the fish and chips. So, if you’re around Spitalfields you must definitely pay this joint a visit. While it isn’t the cheapest place you could taste this (a dish can cost you as much as £12,2), local people claim there’s not a place on earth that serves a better fish and chips than Poppies.
