(Brownie points if you know what song that lyric is from)
Fear not. With these six best London food apps, you can afford a burger AND chips.
Nez is my go to app for lunch. They have an incredible list of cafes and restaurants to choose from (if you’re in Fitzrovia/Bloomsbury, I wholly recommend The Gentleman Barista’s huge and tasty salad.

Help reduce food wastage and get money off meals and desserts with Toogoodtogo. It’s a win-win for everyone so there’s no excuse not to download.

What dishes you’ll get in your Magic Bag is a bit of a lottery, but when the meals are better than half price, you won’t be complaining.
I got this for £3 instead of £12 from the Department of Coffee and Social Affairs…
Lunch for less than a fiver? In London?! Surely you can’t be serious. I am being serious. And don’t call me Shirley.
That joke doesn’t really work written down does it…
Anywho, Mealpal offers lunch for less than a fiver…
There’s lots of chains like Yo Sushi and Wrap It Up to more independent food places like Pilau and Patty and Bun.
As well as discounts on food, Embargo also have money off bars too.
The more you visit a restaurant or bar, the better your offers get. That’s a loyalty program I can get behind.
So if you have a favourite bar or restaurant, it’s definitely worth checking to see if they’re on Embargo (or you might just find your new favourite place…).
Looking to dine in? Make a reservation and get 10-50% off your bill (discounts vary depending on the time of day you eat).
Discoeat also handily display the Google ratings (not that you’ll need it, the calibre of restaurants are high on this app).
I find the map feature is great if you’re out and about and don’t know what food to eat.
And if you’ve got your heart set on a particular restaurant, it’s worth checking to see if they’re on OpenTable (they most likely are).
You can collect points to spend on future meals. If you’re lucky, OpenTable might even have a deal on the restaurant you’re looking at too.
