The city of London can be one of the most expensive cities to visit unless you know where to go. For eating out, one of the best ways to eat good and cheap food is to try out the many ethnic restaurants or kiosks, below I’m listing a few locations which I feel are not to be missed especially if you do not mind strange spices and exotic ingredients, the list is based on an article I found on a Time Out to London guide, I think it’s worth checking at least one of these establishments that will cost you on average around 40 pounds per couple, although in some cases it can get as low as 20 euros:

Necco – 52/54 Exmouth Market. A Japanese cafe where you will find rice balls, noodles and traditional preparations presented in the form of tapas, cost on average £34 ($55) for 2 people.

Mooli’s – in 50 Frith St, Soho. An Indian takeaway specializing in pitta stuffed with meat and vegetables in spicy sauces typical, cost on average £18 ($28) for two people.
