Oie Thai is a takeaway shop in the Liverpool Street arcade that’s known for its big lunchtime queues, as well as reliably good soups and salads. The tom yum soup’s very tasty, and at £5-7 per dish, it’s also affordable enough to have every day. It’s a good call for a grab-and-go lunch if you’re working in the area, or if you need something before you jump on a train. Though the line looks long, the staff will come out and take your order to save you a bit of time.
