One way of keeping costs low is not to drink at London restaurants, that can be achieved, if you are partial to a little alcohol with your meal, either by getting a take away like fish and chips and eating them in a local park, or at home, or going to the Bonnington Cafe, where you can bring your own bottles from the supermarket, and get to eat delicious vegetarian food in a brilliantly convivial atmosphere, perhaps meet fun new people and go home having not broken the bank. Finding cheap places to have a quick lunch or snack, or avoiding breakfasting in a hotel means chains like Leon can come in very handy, offering tasty fresh fast food all over the city. Even Sushi is possible in London on a budget, at a place like Misato, you will find you have to queue, but it's definitely worth the wait. Other Asian restaurants, like Huong Viet in Hackney and many others in the area also serve up cheap tasty food in fun places. Moro is one of the best restaurants in London, but if you can't afford to eat the full meal, you can pop next door to try its tapas bar, Morito, allowing you a kind of 'tasting menu' for a slightly cheaper price, whilst still allowing you to explore the full delicious flavours. Brunch places and cafes are also good bets for finding cheap eats, as are curry places like Aladin and its neighbours on Brick Lane.
