Oooook... I'm an 18 year old lifelong Brooklynite who has traveled to a pretty good spread of countries. I'll be attending UCL in September. I have my own NYC restaurant guide with over 100 restaurants (made for my friends.) Am I going to starve to death? I'll be cooking for myself at least 5 nights a week, but I'm worried.
Basically I need some affordable core restaurants to build my survival around, preferably VERY local South Asian places. I can order food in Bangla (I already do it here :) ) so I really really really want a Bengali place with a good layout of fish. I also need to know of some cheap markets where I can get fresh meat and fish. I'm going to be on a viciously tight budget and I'm willing to walk/bike long distances for low prices. I'm used to getting a great lunch for 6 to 8 dollars in Chinatown, Jamaica, Prospect Heights, Washington Heights, Jackson Heights (more like 4 dollars), etc. I'm going to starve...
My only previous stays in London included no good meals. I was only in London for about 72 hours total, though. I've been to Newcastle and Oxford for extended stays and the food in Newcastle is unspeakably horrible.
