Who hasn't been to London unprepared as to where to eat and spent the same on lunch as you could spend on a new outfit?! Although there are some amazing places to treat yourself not even a Russian Oligarch could afford some restaurants everyday.
Thankfully there are some great value places to eat in Fitzrovia, Soho and Mayfair especially at the moment as even the most respected places have some brilliant offers to tempt the customers in. These are 5 of my favourite cheap places to eat near Oxford Circus for the next time you head in to town for some retail therapy.
Want something whilst on the go? Abokado will just be what you need. Mark and Lindsay launched their first shop in Covent Garden in 2004. With 25 shops spread across the City and West End your quick-stop-shop is at your every corner. Abokado is Asian-infused, from hot pots, to sushi and salads, wraps and shrwaps and not forgetting breakfast and they also have a great selection of juices. So if you want to channel your inner-wellbeing, and charge up your shopping energy before hitting the likes of Oxford Street, Bond Street or Regent Street, then this is the place for you.
You have pounded the pavements of Oxford Street and you need a quick pick-me-up before you get back to doing what London has to offer the most. Shopping. Found on Wardour Street, off Oxford Street is Chipotle, a US chain gone viral in the UK and us Londoners never seem to get enough! The appeal of the burrito is clear: lots of delicious goodness in your hands, bold flavours, and instant gratification once you get your teeth into it. Literally. Chipotle is your answer to a cheap way to whet your palate during the lunch-time rush.
If meat is not your penchant, but you are partial to the legume family then you are in luck. Hummus Bro is your answer to London's prime practitioner of chickpea worship. Hummus Bros can be found not too far from Oxford Circus underground in the heart of the West End and whilst their wraps tick some of the boxes, just go ahead and order the bowls of silky-smooth houmous sprinkled with paprika and olive oil, and make use of the garlic-infused lemon juice. With big portions and outstanding Middle Eastern flavours, this makes a top budget lunch spot.
Tomtom Coffee House
Tomtom Coffee House is a great place to grab a bite to eat whilst enjoying the delicious aroma of the blended beans from Brazil to Ethiopia. More into brunch? Breakfast is served until 3pm and you've everything including eggs done any way you want, toasties and scotch pancakes. Lunch? No problem. Tomtom offers up an assortment of salads as well as tartines – sourdough bread with a choice of toppings including Welsh rarebit and smoked salmon. Not a bad way to grab a quick lunch.
Villandry has it all. Brunches, lunches, dinner, dessert and drinks and all within a quick-setting if you so wish! This little hotspot found on Great Portland Street can sets your temptations in motion. From salted caramel and walnut tarts, blackberry éclairs and chocolate mousses. What's not to like? Asides from having one of the best bottomless brunches, their main menu is just as delicious combined with easy lunch choices. It seems they've thought of everything: come summer, there's a juice bar and a counter serving frozen yoghurt and ice-cream.
