Cheapeats London

Prices that won't break the bankMy 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.
