After the great performance of the post London on a Budget: Cheap eats, I have decided to release a second post within the series. The idea is to share with you all the places that from my point of view deserve a visit and are not going to hurt your pockets.
In this post I have selected different restaurants based on different cuisine types.
Would you like to find out more, then continue reading.
Gökyüzü: Closest tube station Manor House
This Turkish restaurant located in Manor House is not going to disappoint you. You are going to be welcome with a starter (Tzatziki) and a well dressed salad meanwhile they cook your main. High quality meat is what you are going to find there. I tried the lamb skew (Çöp Shish) and it was delicious.
Have a look and their Menu but we aware of the secondary effect: mouth-watering.
The restaurant is big so it is ideal for a lunch or dinner with a group of friend. Also you can order and share their platter before your main.
Eat Tokyo: closest tube station Notting Hill Gate
Don’t be put off after seeing the entrance of this Japanese restaurant from the street. I was introduced to this restaurant by my lovely friend Barbara who was introduced to by a Japanese friend of hers which is always the best of the recommendations, those who are made by someone who really knows the food and culture. The place is tiny so book a table in advance or expect to be queuing outside until it’s your turn.

Sunday: 12pm-4pm & 6pm-10.30pm (last order 30 minutes before closing)

Belgo Centraal: closest tube station Covent Garden
Are you craving for Moules&Frites? This Belgian restaurant will satisfy your cravings. Belgo has different locations but you can find my favourite in Covent Garden, the decoration is so cool. Choose from platters to pots with fries or bread (fries of course!).
They offer an Express menu served between 12pm and 5pm Monday to Friday (not in conjunction with any other offer or promotion): 1 course for £7.50, 2 courses for £10 per person. Otherwise you can always order a la carte – Click here to have a look at their full menu.
Don’t forget to try their Belgium beers, they offer a wide selection and also will recommend you which one marries the better with your food order, but be carefull if you don’t want to end up ruined. Alcohol is London is so expensive.
Rosa’s Thai Cafe: closest tube station Liverpool street
Who doesn’t love Thai food? It is mean to be one of the best cuisines in the world. If you are a Thai food lover don’t forget to pay a visit to Rosa’s Thai Cafe. Located in the vivid Bricklane, you can choose from curries to the most famous Thai dish Pad Thai or other Thai delicatessen.
The Old Bull & Bush: closest tube station Hampstead Heath
I couldn’t finish this post with a mention to the British cuisine and its famous Sunday roast. Combine your Sunday outdoors walk around Hampstead Heath with a lunch at The Old Bull & Bush.
You can choose between the restaurant and the pub but definitely you will save money going to the pub (on the right hand side) and it is more authentic. You will be served a tasty Sunday roast in a charming and cosy room. It is definitely a must-do. There is also an outdoor terrace for those sporadic (and almost nonexistent) sunny days.

That’s all for now. Stay tuned for more updates about Cheap Eats and enjoy your meal.
