London Cheap Eats: The Beefsteaks

Did you crawl out of the warm comfort of your duvet this morning with a slight wine hangover from last night’s escapades? Craving a hearty Sunday roast, yet lack the funds to satiate your red meat fiending? Well, throw on those giant morning after sunglasses, hop on the Jubilee line as fast as you can, and get your broke self down to Maltby Street Market.  Speaking from personal experience, I’ve found a London Cheap Eat to satisfy any steak lover and more than make up for any weekend regrets. Meet my new bae – The Beefsteaks.

London Cheap Eats - the best steak and chips in London for less than a tenner.

Grass-fed, butcher’s cut British Beef, snuggled on top of triple fried chips, all bathed in some sexy AF Bearnaise. AND all for £8.

You can mix up the sauce and do a Chimichurri, horseradish or peppercorn instead, or you can have some taste and stick with the finger-licking worthy Bearnaise. They had a delish looking sandwich as well, but I wanted to feel fancy and have a budget steak dinner. Nailed it.

Maltby is worth a weekend visit to Bermondsey (check out some art galleries nearby while you’re at it), and Beefsteaks is by far my favourite food vendor there. Plus you get such a value for the price. Sure beats some dry falafel from the other guy.

More deets on The Beefsteaks and their schedule here, but for now they’re every weekend at Maltby Street Market. Hustle your way to the end of the market and queue up (worth the wait) for your succulently grilled heaven.
