Having been out of the student game for just over a year, I had forgotten the thrill of finding a real life bargain. In the gallery above Covent Garden market is a food court with a variety of counters selling hot food from all around the world. I must say that none of it looks particularly appealing but persevere and soon you will reach Iky's. Right at the end is a counter selling all manner of overpriced junk food but ignore that because you can buy a huge jacket potato with topping for 99p! It doesn't stop there my friends. Along with this excellent deal comes a free cup of tea or coffee - what more could one wish for? Speaking as someone who has thrown baked beans across the room on a number of occasions when trying to eating an under-cooked jacket off a paper plate I can safely say that these are quality spuds and are served up in a real china dish. Formerly nicknamed the pigeon cafe, until its recent refurbishment, the current clientele seem to be an eclectic mix of students, market stall holders and off-duty policemen. It can get crowded at lunchtime so be sure to go an hour either side so you can watch the buzz of the market without worrying about hogging a table. The down side of this place is that it can get quite cold in the winter and the cutlery is plastic but for 99p I can't really complain.
