Gimme your faves, peeps.
Loong Kee is my favourite followed by Viet Grill.
dirrrrt cheap too.
I've only had it as a take away and it's been well expensive
same as the takeaway ones? All I know is that I've fed and watered myself for under a tenner in there pretty often. Perhaps I'm developing expensive airs
But we got 1 soup, 2 curries, 2 rice and prawn crackers and it came to about £32
There's another Vietnamese further up on the right just before the museum/stately home on Dalston Lane. We pretty much always go for Vietnamese around there.
Cay Tre and Tae Do for Vietnamese
for ThaiThai if you book with Toptable you get 50% off. That's discounting you can believe in.
my friends are quite picky when it comes to non-english food
is one of those American diner places, same as the one off Carnaby St.
but you should try to arrive early as it always seems to be rammed.
You need new friends: I literally can't think of any restaurant in London that isn't either a purveyor of foreign cuisine or a fish'n'chip shop.
Plus, Noodle King is the King of Noodles.
Don't forget that a trip up to London is a major event for them.
Now imagine walking up and down side streets and into and out of cafes for half an hour, until the only acceptable eating establishment is found. Now imagine that said eating establishment is McDonalds.
if they don't like it
And it was one of the best things I've ever eaten
I was spazzed off my rocker on absinthe though
BLT (deli on corner of Curtain Rd/Gt Eastern St, epic tortilla wraps)
This will be your main area to eat post-work. You're going to get fat. :D
It's ok, I'll just try to remember how to bulimia or something (ie go RUNNING LOTS!) ;Y
There's a japanese place right in the middle of Hoxton Square. If you like tofu don't bother, they're really skingy with their tofu.
That place is very poor
that mexican place.
'the slag of shoreditch'
(if you don't know already)
An enormous ebony dildo to contrast with the white cube.
but no. It's one of those B@1 monstrosities that only twats go to.
Noticed the "coming soon" sign yesterday. "Welcome Putney dickheads!" would be a better sign.
"Be At One is a London institution;
9 cocktail bars across the capital with genuine old-school spirit and pretension-free attitude!"
I'll take your word for it, though.
...dirt cheap and dead quick. Would be a shame not to go for a superior Vietnamese just around the corner tho.
The Book Club: nice meals and a table tennis table if you have time.
Cantaloupe: nice Spanish cuisine and a bit of everything else.
My mate lives in Canterbury and just by his flat there's a restaurant called Thais R Us
But very close.
I see that, and raise you: http://i48.tinypic.com/2napcpd.jpg
because, y'know, there can be only one.
even the name can't save it =(
http://www.pilpel.co.uk/find.html (closes early)
and if they're that picky
and there's like a leon and giraffe and square pie in that spitalfields bit innit
although it's not dirt cheap unless you only want a margharita pizza. And rmember to bring a lantern so you can read the menu
I hope this doesn't mean I have to move to clapham.
None was forthcoming. Thanks everyone.
I had one once ages and ages ago, but I can't remember which one it was. There is also one called cay, but i guess that liking the old band of the same name won't necessarily mean that I'll like the food from this place.
is nice but more of a restaurant than the canteen type places on Kingsland High St. I've only been to Song Que as there is no need to try out any of the others. If you go there make sure you order the beef salad and beef in betel leaves (both starters). Trust me.
and this place Song Que cause it's getting a lot of love even if it's not the name of a band I liked.
and there are plenty of non-breakfast options, despite what the name suggests. YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE TOILET WHILE YOU ARE THERE they have 'the world's smallest disco' in there and fraggle rock wallpaper :)
BIT further out of the way... but worth the distance for sure.
And it certainly ain't that cheap neither...
The Princess of Shoreditch and The Fox are both pubs on Paul Street that do traditional British pub fare.
