Here are my five favourite restaurants around campus

We all love food, right? A delicious meal or snack can spark the mood and satisfy your hungry belly. Here is a guide to eating around Newcastle University London's campus - five restaurants offering tasty and comforting foods.

1. Crispin - a number 1 restaurant on the list. Located on a Spitalfields backstreet, this restaurant has eye catching glass and a zinc construction design. A small, modern and stylish restaurant is open from morning to night offering seasonally changing breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. My coursemates and I come here after lectures at least once a week to enjoy breakfast or lunch. A cup of turmeric latte and avocado on sourdough is my personal favorite. Although it's quite busy in Crispin, people are warmly welcomed and served by friendly staff. It is a place for brunch, lunch, studying or dining with friends.

2. Pizza Union is probably the closest and cheapest food place around the NUL campus. Pizza Union is a casual canteen-style pizzeria offering 12 different pizzas, Italian ice cream and drinks. However, the best thing about Pizza Union is the super quick service. In about 10 minutes you can enjoy Italian pizza inside an open venue with long wooden benches or take it away to eat on campus.

3. If you are breakfast kind of person, Breakfast Club is the right place for you. This restaurant has a vivid colourful interior decorated with polaroid pictures, notes and postcards, good music and delicious all-day American inspired breakfast. On the menu you can find a whole variety of breakfasts from stacked American pancakes with cream and berries to sandwiches, burgers and egg-centric dishes. People love this restaurant hence, it is often crowded. However, if you get a table here, tell the staff that you 'come to see the mayor'. This way you will get a chance to sneak into a speakeasy- bar through an old vintage refrigerator’s door and have a drink.

4. Further away from the busy Liverpool Street is hidden gem, Benk & Bo. It's a Norwegian inspired multi- functional space where you will find a professional kitchen, bar, cafe, yoga studio, meeting room, workspace and piano practice room. I would highly recommend to try their high quality coffee and daily plant-based pastries, salads, sweets. As a breakfast lover myself, I come here to start my day off on the right foot. My favorite food on the menu is matcha and a pink porridge bowl with fruits and coconut nibbles. Benk & Bo is not only a place to eat but also a place to socialize, learn new skills, or simply get away from hectic London streets.

5. Old Spitalfields Market is located in a Victorian market hall full of smells and sounds and can be listed as a top-spot for quality food and drink. There is no better place around our campus to visit when it is too difficult to make up your mind where to eat! The variety of restaurants and takeaway street food places will allow you to experience worldwide cuisines. Here you can sip a glass of French wine, grab a Japanese sushi box or try New York burgers at Bleecker Burger. All this vivid market atmosphere, delicious foods and drinks are just around the corner of Newcastle University London.
