One of my favourite perks about living in London is the affordable prices of eating out. Eating out often is often seen as a luxury in many countries. In Japan, Australia and Singapore – all the countries I’ve lived prior to my move here had a common thread. Eating out in restaurants were expensive. A night out with friends in an average restaurant would cost about 30 SGD per head. If we take this value as a dollar-to-dollar value not accounting for difference in currency value, it is astoundingly high!
Eating out in London with the tastecard is very reasonable. You can walk out a meal paying just 8-10 pounds per head. The tastecard gives you either a 50% discount or a 2 for 1 deal in thousands of restaurants across UK. This even works in Dublin, Scotland, Wales. I’ve used it in all those countries. It makes travelling across UK more affordable as your daily budget factors less money to food.
Tastecard has an app which makes finding restaurants near your radius simple. Often we try new restaurants based solely upon the fact that there is a 50% discount. That proves to be an incentive to try an unknown restaurant. We have discovered many hidden gems this way. I’ll be reviewing must-eat restaurants in London that are part of the taste card group!
This is the home screen of the app:
It allows for easy reference to history, recent search and allows you to search. I’ve recently searched for afternoon teas – as you can see! I love good afternoon teas!
If you click on the search tab below, the screen would look like this:
This allows users to make specific searches. It helps me narrow down restaurants to the cuisine that I feel like eating 😉 (A girl needs what she needs!)
I strongly recommend this app to anyone who has tastecard. And if you do not have tastecard and live in the UK – you should get an annual subscription now. It’s usually 30 pounds (on offer). One of the best inventions in UK!
