My mission in London, was to find out if there is a market for Cheapeats and if in fact, I could find some. I got a tip from a local, who told me to head to Islington, which is in North London. I’m game for an adventure, so I hop on the tube and head north.
Islington is quick ride on the Victoria line. In fact, it’s only about a 30 minute walk from Covent Garden. A quaint area, with cafes and boutiques. While strolling along Upper Street, I realize I’ve struck the mother load. There are Cheapeats everywhere!!!!
Le Mercury is a causal French restaurant with AMAZING prices. You can get a 3 course meal which includes a starter, entree and dessert £14.85 ($24US) Now that’s a bargain.
The Bull is a classic English pub that is warm, cozy and inviting. Check out their 2 course prix fixe for £9.50 ($15.03US) or 3 courses for £12.00 ($19.00US)
O’Neill’s – If you head this pub Thursday eves, you can get an entree of grilled meat and a pint £7.99 ($12.63US)
Citrus – Can you believe these deals? 3 courses for £16.00 ($25.30US)? Ding, Ding, Ding….we have a winner.
So folks, let this be a lesson. If you take the time to venture out of central London to where the locals live. You’ll find great discoveries….and great deals!!!!
