We all know that London's crazy expensive, but great food doesn't have to break the bank – particularly if you're ordering with Deliveroo. Get the lowdown on five London restaurants packed full of cheap eats that don't skimp on flavour:
Wrap It Up!
Serving up some of the most exotic flavours in world cuisine, the food at Wrap It Up! is anything but safe. Their made-to-order wraps come from every corner of the globe. The Turkish Shish with chicken or lamb is a big hitter, while the American Smokey with pulled beef brisket makes the lunchtime crowd go wild. It's not always easy to find affordable food in central London, but Wrap It Up! seems to have managed it. If you're pinching pennies in the capital city, they're a great choice.
Still going strong after 30 years, Ragam delivers delicious South Indian cuisine for next-to-nothing prices. The Kerala mutton curry, served with lamb cubes, red chilli, garam masala, tomato, coconut oil, onion and curry leaves has notched up plenty of fans over the years (us included), while their award-winning lunch boxes are perfect if you're ordering to the office. If you're into dangerously spicy, egregiously epic dishes, Ragam is the place for you.
Wickedly waffley goodness in the heart of London, Wafflemeister brings a much-loved Belgian classic to the streets of the capital. Whichever way you like your waffles – drizzled in chocolate fudge, sprinkled with marshmallows or topped off with strawberries – Wafflemeister has what you're looking for. And while they might do some damage to your diet, they'll barely make a dent in your wallet. So what's their secret? Well, it really is a secret! Their waffles are made using a family recipe that dates back to the 50s, and they're keeping their cards close to their chest. No matter how much we beg.
Proper authentic Neapolitan-style pizza is a thing of real beauty. Step forward, Franco Manca, the choice of London foodies everywhere. Their slow-rise sourdough bases are baked to perfection in a traditional wood-burning oven, delivering all the flavour you'd expect to find from a charming, old-fashioned Italian bistro. We love the Meat Special 18, a carnivore crowd-pleaser featuring buffalo ricotta, spicy lamb sausage, yellow piennolo from Vesuvio and fresh basil. With curves in all the right places, these discs of joy are a punter's favourite. They've got locations all over the capital, so find your local branch and place an order with Deliveroo.
Baozi, a type of Chinese steamed meat bun, are a staple of Asian street food. They were invented about 1,800 years ago and remain popular all over the world. Luckily for us, they're what Taoo does best! You can choose from a wide range of toppings, including duck, beef and tofu, while the signature pork baozi meal, served with juicy pork, herbs and Chinese cabbage is a fan favourite. Still got room for more? There are plenty of extras on offer, including seaweed salad, dumplings and dimsum.
