The Best Cheap Eats in Toronto

The Best Cheap Eats in Toronto

The Best Cheap Eats in Toronto

We all love to eat out, but unfortunately with it comes a few downsides, like receiving that higher than normal monthly credit card statement. Eating out is convenient when you don't have time to make food at home, it’s a great way to catch up with friends or a nice treat for yourself when you want to switch things up and indulge.

Eating out can be expensive but it really does not have to be. Toronto is home to way too many wonderful cheap eats to miss out on all the delicious options this city has to offer, so we have listed some of our favourites for you below. Deciding what to include in this list was difficult, but we have managed to come up with 30 spots that won't break the bank. These spots are spread out all over Toronto, from the best cheap pizza slices, to hole-in-the-wall taco joints. From shawarma spots to cheap Chinatown dumplings -- if it is $10 dollars or under before tax, we have considered it. Look no further for your guide to cheap eats in Toronto.

This strip mall takeout spot in Scarborough is known for their delicious and affordable Sri Lankan and Indian food. With consistently long lineups, its worth waiting for the Lamprais -- a Sri Lankan dish -- priced at $8.45. With that you get a generous portion of meat, rice, a variety of curries, dried egg and pickled eggplant -- all wrapped in a banana leaf and baked.
