We all love cheap eats, but you don't live in London so that you can eat out in pizza parlours or burger joints, so you won't find them in our list of the city's best budget grub. London's a global gastronomic hotspot, where you can experiment with dishes you're not going to find in Crieff or Godalming. The Time Out food and drink team has gathered together London's 100 most interesting cheap eats, from Afghan restaurants to Vietnamese cafés.

Check out London's best cheap eats in central, north, south, east and west London. We've also picked the best new eating-out-on-a-budget options for breakfast, lunch and dinner and you can even explore the full list of all our recommended budget restaurants.

Neon Burgers in Stoke Newington - what a secret and what a great place

Must you use 'eats' as a plural noun?

Italians Pizza Connection in Bayswater is missing. You can buy a 18" margherita (which is enough for 2 or 3 people!) for just £13! I love that place, and I'm Italian!

Will be in the¨"Big Smoke" next week and this site will be most helpful since I´ve been told "there´s absolutely not a good unexpensive place to eat well there! And I know that´s not true! But I haven´t got the time to explore the city on my own(which I love), so this is (to me) an excellent way to avoid going hungry!!! Thanks a lot!!!
