When it comes to our lunch break, us humans can be very indecisicve about what we eat and where from. Luckily, Elephant and Castle boasts a vaste range of cultural foods from all over the globe, that I'm sure you're bound to find and taste something you fancy!
In your group of friends you'll probably have a balance of those who prefer cheap and fast food (I'm one of them, not proud to say), some who are in love with nuts, salads and all that 'healthy' shit, and then some who actually couldn't care less what they eat and go with the majority's option.
Now for those of you who have an appetite for fast food such as wings and chips, go to Chicken Cottage, which is literally a 5 minute walk from London College Of Communication. There you can get all the chicken, chips, nuggets, and all these junky you can imagine!
Just next to Chicken Cottage, is Bagel King. Now Bagel King does what it says on the tin and more. My favourite food place in the whole of Elephant and Castle, I highly recommend it to my fellow UAL friends. You can enjoy savoury sandwiches, with vegeterian and meaty fillings, rice, puddings, desert, drinks and the rest you will have to witness for yourself!
Ossie's Jerk Chicken is a Carribean food shop that is located opposite the side of the road that Bagel King and Chicken Cottage are on. They do lunchtime specials in rice and stewed chicken, jerk chicken, fried chicken, oxtail, curry mutton etc. Fair pricing too, just 3 pound.
I'm sure everyone knows about TESCO and their meal deals Just in case you don't and you have just settled into the country, TESCO's meal deal consists of; a sandwich/container of pasta, a crisp/chocolate/small container of bite-sized fruit and a drink for just three pounds. Now for those of you who are on a tight budget and in between or out of jobs, this would provide the best option. You can also get very cheap but filling salads there, so be sure to give TESCO a vsiit, the closest one is located inside the Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre, and another one just on Walworth Road.
Don't forget there is a very high standard catering service within the university dining and eating in area upstairs just next to the UAL library. Very often there are a wide range of options, from jacket potateoe and baked beans to an indian Jalfrezi with Basmati rice.
Don't be a shy eater, go out there and explore. The world is your oyster, unless you eat it! Get it? OK, never mind ..
