Alright, straight up, if you're looking for a place with amazing food for $5 a dish, then look no further. Le Warehouse, on Crescent Street, has burgers, appetizers (like pirogies!), salads, pasta, and more, for $5 each. Bonus points: their drinks are super inexpensive, too!


2. Thali

If you love Indian food, do I have some great news for you. This Indian restaurant, located close to Concordia University, is known for two things: their incredibly inexpensive dishes, and their super quality, super tasty food. Butter chicken for days, guys. Butter chicken for days.


3. Nilufar

Alright, real talk, this restaurant is fantastic. Not only do they serve up pretty much the most fresh and flavourful falafels around, but the food here is incredibly inexpensive. So if you want something fresh, tasty, and filling, but don't want to break the bank, then no worries. Nilufar is here for you.


4. Don Taco

Mexican food lovers, rejoice. Don Taco, located near Concordia's SGW campus, is pretty much one of the best places to get burritos and tacos in the city, especially considering the prices here are more than super fair.

5. Al Taib

Honestly, Al Taib is life. If you love pizza, pitas, manakesh, sujuk, and more, then this spot is absolutely for you. Not only is the food here delicious, but it's absolutely, totally inexpensive, with one pita running you about $5 max.

A Portuguese chicken place, right downtown? Ohhh yassss. This place serves up some seriously succulent, tasty chicken, and although their chicken might cost you more than $10, their delicious sandwiches certainly will not.


7. Mon ChiCha

This spot is all about serving up delicious street food from Hong Kong, Japan, and Taiwan, all under one roof. They have tons and tons of delicious delights, including steamed buns, all for super fair prices.


8. Picks

IMO, it's fair to say that at this point, Picks is one of Montreal's best kept secrets. Their burgers and poutines are on a whole other level of awesome, and their kogos (potato crusted pogos)? Out of this world amazing.

9. Boustan

Is it too early to call Boustan a Montreal institution? I don't think so, because if you've ever tried the super tasty potatoes, shish taouks and shawarmas from this super popular and inexpensive spot, then you know just how awesome it truly is. And if you never have? Get yourself here. Like, now.


10. Sammi & Soup Dumpling

Dumplings are life, honestly, and Sammi focuses on some of the tastiest, juiciest dumplings in the whole city. Best part? A basket of dumplings won't set you back much more than $10.
