This place is a must for when you're in London. It's open 24 hours, it's been open for forever, it's crazy cheap. It's legendary. It's in a legendary place.
Back when I used to live in London and hung around the Shoreditch neighbourhood much of my time there, this used to be a regular lunch place. A and I would meet up after his work and come here for a quick bite before dinner. A and I would bring our visiting friends here for a treat. There are usually lines, but the ladies are so quick at mental calculations that you will never need to wait too long. Yea, so bring your coins. They are not the friendliest people, either, to be honest, but they are not here to sell their smiles, and for the price and taste you're getting, you don't really care either. It's almost part of the experience package.
Trust me. You have to come here.
