London through the eyes of an MA student new to the city

Organic Planet

P1020068Organic Planet is an invaluable healthy haven for students and workers alike. It is a London chain, which luckily has a large base just round the corner from UCL and has given me an extra burst of energy for studying several times.

Needless to say, all their produce is organic, largely vegetarian with many vegan options. They do a popular canteen service with a variety of homemade food – the organic tofu stir fry, beetroot salad and rosemary potatoes are each delicious (though not necessarily together!) A student discount means you can get a hot, healthy lunch for less than £4, to eat in or take away.

P1020230For pudding or a sweet bite, there is always a large selection of cakes and pastries (the brownies are some of the best I’ve ever had, and I’ve ‘sampled’ many brownies!)


Organic Planet also offers fresh vegetables and bread, as well as unusual food products. There are at least five different types of houmous, each distinct with its own (natural) colour.
