Leading on from JTOO's thread on store cupboard / cheap recipes, I thought it might be a good idea to swap knowledge of where to get good quality food/drink and all things edible at bargain prices in and around SE1. I'm sure that there are lots of places that have one amazing bargain. As an example the offy closest to Green Walk
on Tower Bridge Road
does 500ml Budvar at £1.35, was £1.20 until recently (at least 25p cheaper than any supermarket). And others where bargains are the norm eg the Middle Eastern supermarket at the junction of Southwark Park Road and St James Road. Amazing bread (60-85p) made and baked on the premises, olives (~£5.99/kg), quality fresh lamb and oxtail, huge bunches of herbs including mint (that makes excellent tea) for 69p plus a huge selection of dried goods. Quite possibly my single most loved shop in the entire area. Bargains and very friendly people. (Just for the record, no connection).
So what's your favourite?
Please no postings re there's a great stall at BM that does steak at £32.99/kg. Quality I'm sure. Bargain - I'm sure not!
