PRESS: London Cheap Eats and individual team members featured on Business Insider


What a fabulous way for us to round off our first year in operation.

The lovely folk over at Business Insider have only gone and featured the London Cheap Eats Instagram account in their The 50 best food bloggers to follow on Instagram in 2017 article - we're truly honoured, and in great company!

Not only that, but team members Kar-Shing and Leyla have had their personal Instagram accounts featured in the same article - congratulations all round!

P.S. If you're wondering where the weekly London Cheap Eats entries have got to, the team have been taking a well deserved break over the festive period. You can expect new entries up on the website again from the 6th January. In the meantime, we hope you've had a fabulous Christmas, and have an awesome new year!

PRESS: TWO team members featured in Evening Standard's top London foodies list

WELL. Aren't we just chuffed with our team. Firstly, for being awesome in general and doing a damn fine job of seeking out London's best cheap eats. But also, because no less than two members were featured in this Evening Standard article on the weekend: London's top 10 foodie influencers on Instagram.

Congratulations Kar-Shing and Leyla. And the London Cheap Eats Instagram account even got a nice little mention. In true team style, the whole gang hit up Malaysian joint Tuk Din in Bayswater to celebrate. But also because we just can't get enough of each other.

Editor's note: Tuk Din is a great cheap eat in its own right. Stay tuned for a write-up on their fab food.

PRESS: Leyla takes over the @FoodismUK Instagram account

This weekend (19th and 20th March) there's an exciting collaboration between founder Leyla and our pals over at Foodism - London's largest food and drink magazine.

Being the London cheap eat connoisseurs that we are, we were asked a very good question by our friends over at leading global travel search site Skyscanner: "Do you have any suggestions for cheap alternatives to some of the city's most prestigious restaurants, that don't compromise on quality?".

The team put their heads together and came up with five belters, an article which makes up part of Skyscanner's The Locals' Food and Travel Guide series.

You can check out what we came up with here - let us know what you think and more importantly, if you try any!
