So give your wallet a rest and your taste buds a treat, as we present a guide to the best and cheapest Sydney lunches.
The Veggie Patch van likes to keep its food simple and fresh. Each one of their meals is $10 and handmade with the freshest produce in front of you. If you want something to truly blow your mind, grab one of their zucchini burgers which includes their famous homemade tomato sauce that locals just can’t get enough of.
When people think frugal, they tend to stay away from places like Surry Hills. Well not only does this cantina offer cheap, tasty and healthy food, it also brings an authentic Mexican atmosphere to the streets of Sydney. Their spit-roasted pork or lemongrass beef tacos are only $5 each and will keep you full for the rest of the day. The food is so good here; you’ll be booking a ticket to Cancun in no time.
Mappen’s Noodle Bar on George Street offers some great meals that are the perfect alternative for those who aren’t big spenders. All of their meals range between $5 to $10 and customers can choose from either Udon or Soba noodles. From Seafood to Kake Soup, the choices here will keep you coming back for more. Just remember, you can never have too much spice when you choose to have lunch here.
Inspired by the streets and flavours of New York City, Brooklyn Hide knows a thing or two about keeping it frugal. While, each one of their signature Bagels may be $10, it doesn’t mean that they skip out on taste. Their Bronx Bagel offers enough prosciutto, egg, tomato chutney, rocket & lime to make patrons feel like their living in a Scorsese movie.
Finally, if your tummy is rumbling around the Inner West of Sydney, make sure you grab a bite at Marrickville Pork Roll. This is the best place for Vietnamese Cuisine and their BBQ Pork Banh Mi Roll is only $4.50, which means that you can by two of them and still stay under your $10 budget. How sweet is that!
