When I first moved to the UK, you could find me more often than not eating at a Wetherspoon. In my head, a good ol’ Spoon breakfast was probably the most ‘traditional’ British food (please forgive 2015 Vicky) plus you can’t beat the prices when your cash flow is low.
I stuck with the same food choices almost exclusively every time I went out. Variety was not my second name, and “Eating out in London is expensive!” was one of the first things that came out of my mouth when talking to my friends at home about the city.
That changed when we moved to East London. Suddenly, we had more time to see friends and different cuisines were at the tips of our fingers. In the last year, we have visited many pubs, cafes and restaurants, but these five places have been tried, tested, and continue to be loved by us.
