Although London is one of the most expensive cities in the world, eating out can be quite inexpensive and having a delicious meal does not mean having to pay a fortune. A one dish meal can cost around £10, but keep in mind that some restaurants can charge you extra fees.
If you have little time or money, you can find numerous fast food restaurants in all of London that serve hamburgers, kebabs or pizza.
London has an endless variety of restaurants from around the world, but if you’re looking for traditional English cuisine, these are the most common dishes:
The tradition and ceremony of English tea dates back to the seventeenth century, when the British upper class took the custom of drinking tea imported from the Far East for breakfast and during the afternoon, for their afternoon tea. It is now one of the most popular drinks in the UK.
Although the ritual of the afternoon tea is fading due to the rush of modern life, English citizens will always try and make time for a nice cup of tea or ask their friends around for some hot brew.
Some of the best places to enjoy the ceremony of English tea are in the finest hotels of London, where for a little over £30 you will be able to relax and enjoy a steaming cup of tea. Another great option for an “afternoon tea” is the Orangery in Kensington Palace.
Although it might seem a little pricey, the tea always includes delicious pastries, scones and sandwiches as well as various kinds of tea.
Normally locals eat quite early, from 12 pm to 2 pm for lunch and 5 pm to 8 pm for dinner. However, you need not worry if you have different eating schedules as most restaurants in London open until late, and some open 24h, especially in Soho.
Although you’ll find restaurants and food stands in all the city’s neighbourhoods, one of the best areas is Covent Garden and the streets around Leicester Square and the Soho area.
For those who love Asian food, we recommend heading to Chinatown, where there are numerous delicious restaurants that offer fixed and filling menus for £8.
As this is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, visitors will find restaurants offering all types of food with different pricing, from small inexpensive restaurants to fancy establishments with exorbitant prices.
