Spud.

At spud. (the full stop goes with the name) the tuberous vegetable is given pride of place, Atkins dieters look away now. Well, you can opt for a salad instead but what would be the point of going to a place called spud (full stop) if not for the potato Potatoes are served in a noodle style box and you can opt to eat in at underspud or takeaway. While potato is certainly giving top billing the toppings are really rather good. Choose a 'Simply spud me' and you'll get a paired down potato with butter, cheddar cheese and creme fraiche... that's it. Or you can go gourmet with a Sicilian aubergine, tomato and cumin stew served with lentils, chilli, green bean & radicchio, and goat's cheese. Slow cooked Moroccan lamb tagine, smoked mackerel, and braised barbecue pork served with apple slaw and barrel aged feta are also on the menu. The coffee isn't bad either, coming from Allpress, it's roasted in Shoreditch and made from ethically sourced beans. Stop by spud. for a hearty, filling cheap eat.
