Check out these SIX favourite spots for cheap eats in London

BAO

In the mood for authentic Taiwanese street food? Try the classic bao, which comes laden with thick, slow-braised pork and seasoned with peanut powder and coriander. The soft, bright-white bun is unlike any traditional sandwich bread, so prepare to be amazed.

Bao moved to a new location, and the line of customers followed suit, eager for the sweet-salty mashup that is this sandwich.

Cost: About £4

Location: Netil Market, Hackney or 53 Lexington Street

Dishoom

Experience the spice of the Middle East with the Iranian offerings at Dishoom. Dishes are large enough for sharing, and you can even spice up your breakfast with Akuri, a spicy egg scramble with grilled tomatoes.

Cost: About £7

Location: 12 Upper St. Martin’s Lane, Covent Garden

Herman ze German

With a name like Herman ze German, you know you’re going to find the best German hot dogs in the city. Try the chilli wurst: Pork and beef combined into a sausage, with chilli for that something extra.

Though authenticity may not be the name of the game here, it’s certainly a delicious morsel at a convenient price.

Cost: £5

Location: 19 Villiers Street, Charing Cross, 33 Old Compton Street, Soho, or 43 Charlotte Street, Fitzrovi

Mike and Ollie

Mike and Ollie have somehow taken the simple wrap and transformed it into an amazing lunch option.

Not feeling in the mood for a wrap? Go for their equally delicious flatbreads. These are made Lebanese-style and crammed with fish, meat or vegetable options.

They recently opened a location in Camberwell, but they’re still keeping it real at Brockley Market, too.

Cost: About £7

Location: Brockley Market, Lewisham

Pieminister

What good Brit or Anglophile doesn’t love pie? Pieminister has met the challenge of taking the classic savory pie and improving upon it.

The Moo Pie—British steak and ale—is not to be missed.

Cost: £4.50 for pies (mushy peas and mash extra)

Location: 91 Leather Lane, Farringdon or 56 Upper Ground, Southwark

Roti King

Roti, the flatbread popular across Southeast Asia, is king at this authentic Malaysian shop. The line out the door might be long, but the wait is worth it for a Roti Canai made special for you with fish, chicken, or meat curry.

Cost: About £5.50

Location: 40 Doric Way, Euston

No vacation in London is complete without thoroughly investigating its vibrant food scene. You don’t need to spend big bucks to enjoy the best of what this city has to offer, though. These six London cheap eats destinations are just enough to whet your appetite.
