5 Great Eats Under £5 – London

In England, Great Eats Under $5, Quick & Easy on October 27, 2009 at 11:17 pm

London grudgingly holds the throne as one of the most expensive capitals in the world. Pauper days while living in London were mostly spent hunting for the cheapest eats in town. So as a tribute to my cold-and-poor days in London, here’s a roundup of 5 great eats under £5 and where to get them.

O'Neills Sunday Roast1. Special Sunday Roast at O’Neills

If London were a dish, it would be the Sunday Roast: beef fillet, Yorkshire pudding, roasted potatoes and tons of gravy. Feasting on this meaty platter is the mandatory Sunday activity for the Brits. You can easily find an English Pub at almost every street corner, and all of them do the quintessential Sunday Roast. Try to catch the promotions on selected days, with a set going for £4.99.

2. Camden Food Market – International Food

This is where India meets Morocco meets Mexico. The artful assemblage of exotic foods from different corners of the world makes for a great hangout for foodies. Feast your eyes on the colorful foreign foods on display, and all that, for prices as low as £3.50. My choice: beef rendang at the Indonesian store – only for the spicy-tongued.
