Doughnut Time, Gaucho, Cadbury’s and other treats in London - cheap and expensive - for Eat What You Want Day

We pick out some ideas to treat yourself for Eat What You Want Day in London.

It’s Eat What You Want Day (May 11), apparently, and whatever that actually means, London has the best selection in the world for treating yourself.

Whether it is a fine steak restaurant or an unnecessarily big curry, sometimes a good meal is what you need. But sometimes it is a simple chocolate bar or an exquisite dessert that does the job.

Everyone is different, as listeners to Off Menu Podcast will attest. We would all assemble our perfect food experience in a different way.

Of course not everyone (virtually no one) can afford fine dining, but a special bite to really make your week doesn’t have to be at the top end of the price range. Some of our suggestions here involve cooking at home, or opting for a cheap shop option.

We recently looked at how different supermarkets compare when it comes to loyalty card offers, and came up with some surprising results.

But whatever your taste (and whatever Eat What You Want Day means), why not make your week that little bit better with a special snack or meal. Fried veggie sausage sandwiches for lunch for me, and then possibly a massive paneer balti for dinner.
