Cheap Eats in London


Look we all know London is expensive; I mean painfully expensive. The rental figures that constantly come out about London are always worrying, yet we can't help but pay them because well...London. It's the place you love, whilst also hating so much of it. 

With this in mind, and for those skint Londoners like me, I wanted to piece together my favourite cheap eats in London. You really don't have to spend a fortune to eat out at great places, it's one thing I'll be incredibly grateful for.

Flat Iron, Soho
I blogged this one a while ago, but it remains one of my favourite places in London to eat...even if not on a budget. I've had a fair few friends head there too and all say how great it is. You can read my full review here.

It's essentially paying £10 for the flat iron steak, and then additional for the sides. I've never paid for than £40-50 for a meal for two...and a bit one at that inclusive of wine!

I'd recommend getting there at 6pm and putting your name down, if you can of course. Queues can get as long as two hours.

Mother Mash, Soho
Once again - find the full review here

Mother Mash is the perfect location to get those homely treat you crave on the occasion for a super reasonable price. Not paying more than £10 for a huge portion of good quality food is great for this central location. I'd recommend this when hungover too - not quite a roast but it's excellent!

Firefly, Balham 
I love Thai food - and as far as the British equivalent goes Firefly isn't bad. It's super reasonable, but it's usually rammed every night of the week so either book up or head there early. I love their Pad Thai, and they even do takeaway if you want to eat it at home.

Franco Manca, Various Locations 
Pizza...need I say more?

With all of the pizzas being under £10, and they are huge, you can quite conceivably have a meal for two with a bottle of wine for under £30...actually I did this a couple of weeks ago in their Broadgate branch. It's incredible value for money.

Mildreds, Soho
A vegetarian option, because not everyone wants meat. This little place is one of my all time favourite places in London. I thought I'd hate it - but quite the opposite. I love the variety of food here and it's super fresh.

Mister Lasagna, Piccadilly 
Over 20 different types of lasagna - and at a more than reasonable price? It's hard to say no to that. I tried several different flavours and I can hands down say they are delicious. My favourite would be the cheesey bacon one - not sure on the specific name but it's delicious.
