The London Undergrub

Continuing on the random city posts (I swear, I'll get back to normal topics once I've pulled my brain out of Draft 2!), I'd like to introduce you to a wonderful thing: a food-map of the London Underground. Every station has been changed into a sort-of similar sounding food... brilliant. (Click to link below to enlarge.)



My station is Nutty Hill Gate. Now I'm starving.

If you could live at any food station of your creation, what would it be? Cow's Hind Quarters? Mornington Croissant? I'd love it if there were a Twizzlers station.

  1. Being from Devon, I would probably opt for Clotted Cream, but I wouldn't mind a long stay at Caramel Park!

  2. Oh, that's fab! I usually travel up by overground train from East Croydon (or should that be Feast Croydon!) to London from where I am and then pick up the tube from there. I suppose I could always jump on at Vodka, sample Pimms en-route, and alight at Victoria Sponge. Yum Yum x

  5. Mornington Croissant looks good, but I'd probably go someplace where there's chocolate. I'm craving chocolate like crazy lately because I've given up for Lent.

  6. London's Fudge is my fave. What makes me think you like food? I used to love fudge but can't eat it now due to a dairy intolerance.

  7. Had an idea. How about a series of stories based around the new named stations? All that inc that said food. Fudge could appear as a main thing in London's Fudge.

  11. Twizzlers Station sounds good to me, but I think I'd like my stop to be Lucky Charm Junction.

  12. I'll be coming to your fair city this summer , Talli! Just made my reservations. Now I will impress people with this lingo. OH! I'll be so popular in Londontown!

  13. Maybe the anchovie pizza station? It would probably be a low population zone. There would be beer though.

    Thanks for your comment, it really cheered me and with the other followers who wrote decided there are more good people than not so good.

  23. I see there's a Nachos Park and a Pina Colada station. I'd be in that area. I do like Tracy Jo's Cheese, Olive and Wine Shack, too!

  26. Choccy Coffee Street Station?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I lived right off Queensway on the red line. This makes me miss London so hard. Although really, not the food, except the curry:)

  28. Lindt Chocolate Station. No contest!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Watched an old movie, Sliding Doors, again on the weekend. The London Underground was featured but I didn't see Mars Bar Central anywhere.

  30. If there's a Caramel Corner, I'm there!

    When I read Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, the underground seemed more gritty than sweet.

  31. I could go for a nice hot, Mac and Cheese station.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Cute! I could go for the croissant one. Or a chocolate one?

    ReplyDelete
  33. It's the middle of the night. I refuse to get hungry!

    ...Too late. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. hah, thats cute!
    I'd have to say "Kraft Dinner Station" Oh yes... (I know, I am a uni student at heart!)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm laughing so much I can't answer your question!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I would answer but I'm late for my train. Destination: Beef Stroganoff Station. Ohhh yeahhh!!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Food station of my creation? LOve it! Mine would be Coconut Cafe. Cakes, cookies, candies, cocktails,ice crea, water...all things coconut!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hmm, food station, it would have to be somewhere with great coffee and books. What would I call it? Java Shelf maybe? Happy revising!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Anything that has to do with food is all right by me. Love it. =D

    ReplyDelete
  40. Crap. I just HAD to look at this over my lunch break. My measly salad doesn't look so good anymore! I'm a pastries gal at heart, so the croissant one or "tasted buns" sound great. Unfortunately, someone should drop me off at the Weight Watchers station and just leave me there... :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hahaha. What a way to view your route,though I don't recall them all like that.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love it! If I were in London, I think I'd spend a lot of time at Toffee Court Road and Candy Town stations! lol

    ReplyDelete
  43. What an amazing idea! That's all I'm going to be thinking about now - especially with two weeks left to go before we're in London for real!

Coffee and wine for all!
