Where to eat in Shoreditch for £5 or less

Coffee Me

48 Great Eastern Street, London EC2A 3EP

I had their Italian chicken toasted sandwich for around £3 and their cappuccinos come for £1.95. They also have £5 meal-deals, such as a sandwich, salad and a hot drink. Good food, and quite good rates. On a sunny day, you’d be well-advised to sit outside and watch quirky Shoreditch life go by.

Mediterranean Deli

Around 98 Curtain Road, Shoreditch, EC2A 3

Falafel sandwich and a hot chocolate set me back £4.45. Their chilli con carne jacket potatoes was just £3.75. Again, outside seating is preferred in good weather. The food is filling, if not perfect.

Lati Ri

Rivington Place, Rivington Street, Shoreditch, London EC2A 3BE

The food is good, but on the pricey side. I still managed to eat for £5 or under, but I felt the portions of the food did not reflect the price tag. For example, the first time I went there I sampled the chicken fajitas. Taste-wise it was great…but I felt £4.50 was too much for the portion I was served. Similarly, I had the Lati Ri club the next time. That was £4.50 too and the bread size was quite small…I don’t know where everyone else comes from but club sandwiches are supposed to be big! I wouldn’t go back here in a hurry.

8-9 Hoxton Square, London N1 6NU

I’ve very rarely eaten Thai food and I know people might be surprised but this was the first time I had Pad Thai! Just over £5 for this one; the chicken Pad Thai including service charge was £6.13. I had no complaints here. The Pad Thai was delicious and the salad fresh. Again, people who know me, know that I rarely ever eat my salad. Here, it was all gobbled up. It looks small from outside, but the food definitely packs a punch.

Dragon Public House

138-139 Shoreditch High Street, Shoreditch, London, E1 6JE

They have a set £5 meal chalkboard. Decent pub food. And that’s all there was to this place!

Franco’s Sandwich Bar and Café

67 Rivington Street, London EC2A 3AY

This is by far the BEST place among all the ones I went to in Shoreditch. THE BEST. At lunch time, there is a line of people outside the tiny place like a long snake. I once bought a sandwich there for £2.50. I was stuffed. Their portions are massive, and flavour excellent. The staff are terribly friendly – and the Italian accents help with the decidedly European deli atmosphere. Next time I went there I had one of their specials…£3.90. The third, £3.30. They do breakfasts as well, and if their amazing lunches are anything to go by, that would be a winner as well.

The Bean

126 Curtain Road, London EC2A 3PJ

A lunch meal here is about £4.70, which gives you a sandwich from a selected range, a drink and crisps. I’m well aware I only have photos of their magical cupcakes which set me back only £1.50, but I gobbled the rest up pretty fast. Busy place with average food. Loving their pastry selection!

Absolutely love this place. Friendly staff who offer suggestions and filling and delicious food. A sandwich there cost me £3.20 and a coffee £1.50. The next time I went there, I had a sandwich, hot chocolate and a pastry…£6.50! Superb!
