I’m sure you’ve heard people say that food in England is not exactly award winning. However, I was not disappointed at the places that we randomly found while exploring the city. I want to share with you some budget friendly options for the next time you find yourself looking for a delicious gem. I apologize for not keeping all of my receipts, so there are a few places that I did not list the cost. There are some items that are also listed USD so there is not a mistake in using £ vs $. Just wanted to point that out 🙂
