  • Cheap eats in London

    Mac and cheese melt at Melt Room (£5)

    The classic toastie has received a gourmet makeover in Soho and is now known as a “melt”. Perfectly gooey, cheesy macaroni on toasted sourdough will turn any lunchtime into an hour of indulgence.

    Confit pork bao at Bao (£4.50)

    Since launching last year, Bao’s soft milk bun filled with tender, slow-cooked pork and crispy shallots has become an Instagram sensation. You can expect to spend a bit of time queueing on the pavement, but it’ll be worth it.

    Bockwurst at Herman ze German (£4.45)

    Those in the know promise that this will be the best bockwurst you’ve ever eaten. Smokey sausage in a soft baguette, topped with spicy curry ketchup – this will have you looking at “hot dogs” in an entirely new way.

    Margherita pizza at Pizza Union (£3.95)

    If super thin and crispy pizzas are your thing, then Pizza Union might just become your new favourite place. Crispier than its traditional Neapolitan cousins, three minutes is all that stands between you and pizza heaven.

    Falafel wrap at Falafel and Shawarma (£3)

    Falafel and Shawarma are best known for their mixed mezze and chicken shawarma, but their falafel wrap is a hidden gem on the menu. Homemade chickpea fritters packed in a flatbread with salad and a garlic and chili sauce – this could be the best £3 you spend all week.
