When it comes to spending our money, us kidults are either wearing it or eating it. For those of you who strongly relate to the ‘eating it’ part, here are four of the best spots to chow down around town.

If the world’s juiciest burgers, having your favourite song being played and the chance of your photobooth selfie being bought by the owners doesn’t tick every teen box, then I don’t know what will. We also love the names of their drinks (Kammel Toe, anyone?), the fact that they give you a free meal if you complete the chilli challenge (ten minutes to eat three chilli-covered dishes) and the ‘rabbit style’ burgers, which switch out the buns for lettuce!

Dishoom is a bucket-list-for-teens kind of a place, thanks to its good-quality, Indian-with-a-twist food and fair prices. They have vegetarian, dairy- and gluten-free options so no one has to miss out, and the decor is really fun and colourful, too. The trouble with being so good is that there’s usually a queue, so book ahead (they only take dinner bookings for groups so grab some mates) or go at an off-peak time.

Korean street food is the best if you’re young and on a budget: it’s super-cool and super-cheap. The food is super-satisfying, too, with each bite just as good as the last. Try their yangyum chicken and bulgogi beef buns and thank me later. They offer small dishes as well, with prices starting from just £3.50! Amazing service? Check. Amazing food? Check. Amazing experience? Check.

We teens love a trend – and the craze for matcha is a big one. So Tombo is tops, because it has almost everything your matcha-loving heart could ever desire. Everything from matcha lattes, macaroons, doughnuts, soft-serve ice cream and the opportunity to create your own poké bowl! As well as the matcha overload, you can expect a chilled and friendly atmosphere thanks to it being in one of Soho’s many hidden corners.
