Not exactly my work place, but just a few streets down, is the company Canteen...
yes, its Only a canteen, and its damn cosy inside. Not to mentioned the price of food is subsidised...
BTW, cost of living here is extrememly HIGH! samer pricing as s'pore, but in terms of POUND!

To serve as comparison, this meal is served in the RBS canteen, Burger (real huge Pattie! thou not very convicing in pic...)
for GBP3.65 (much cheaper than those u get outside)
i.e. cost SGD9.00 at least...

Food served in Pub: their pub opens in the early noon, and yes, lotsa people drink at that time..
and the most common eateries u can find on London street are pubs, and almost all served decent food!
this is a person serving of Lasgne, and its suppose to be a cheap GBP4.65, as its on their "daily special menu"
its equivalent to s'pore's 2 portion...

A pub near my workplace on a friday. and the time was only 7pm..
well, the pubs there are occupied from noon til night....
oh yah, their beer is real cheap... sometimes cheaper than Mineral water in the supermarT!

Work has started this week, and its indeed a steep learning curve...
nevertheless, must still enjoy and tour ard london!!!
