Cafeteria food and McDonald's can only take you so far before your hungry mouth starts yearning for something different. Listed below are some of London's most popular restaurants that are easily accessible from campus. Treat your taste buds to some good food and drink!

"Shake yo' asses"
Like fishing? Well, here is a short list of some of the many holes you can frequent. There are a few things to expect such as long lines, girls wearing as little as possible, Janet Jackson booming out of the speakers and often attitudes accompanied by big egos. However, many offer a wide variety of sounds and feels, depending on which night of the week it is.
