Address: Thornhaugh Street, London WC1H 0XG
Telephone: 020 7637 2388
Description: If you know anyone who goes to SOAS, get them to sign you in as a guest as every Wednesday from 1-4pm when they have a bulk food stall in the JCR. The prices are heavily subsidized and the quinoa ends up being a fraction of the price of what you pay in Alara. And you fill your own bag. So worth it if you're a heavy consumer!
