Montreal is home to some of the best restaurants and most amazing food in the entire country, we all know this. The level of quality, freshness and deliciousness is stepped up a notch in this city, which makes for some pretty unreal meals for us Montrealers to enjoy. However, eating at super high end restaurants can get pretty expensive I'm sure we can all agree.
Luckily for us, there's some seriously amazing food with just the same levels of quality, freshness and deliciousness that those higher end restaurants have for way less! Yup that's right, you can get some amazing meals right here in Montreal for under $10. Check out this list below!
This spot features vegetarian Indian food, and is known as some of the best classic indian cuisine this city has to offer. Their light meals only cost $4 and if you want a combo plate, such as the one pictured above, it's only $9!!

Okay, there's absolutely nothing like this place anywhere else in Montreal. They have some unreal poutines, sandwiches, and a bonus is that their burgers are only $3! How much better can it get? They're also open late, around 2 am, so when those late night munchies kick in, you know where to go.
3. La Petite Bouchée Delice
An amazing spot located in Montreal's very own Mile Ex, La Petite Bouchée Delice is the spot to go if you're looking for delicious cheap eats. Everything on their menu is under $10, which is such a steal for the quality of food that they offer. Their tacos are all $5, chicken wings for $6 and hotdogs for only $2!!

This lunch spot has some seriously amazing and authentic Vietnamese food. The highlight of their menu is their Banh Mi sandwiches for only $4.25-$4.75! They come in 15 different amazing flavours giving you tons of selection and you can choose either a 7 inch or a 10 inch! If you're a bubble tea lover, you've come to the right place because their bubble tea is some of the best for only $3.50! So an entire meal, with a Banh Mi sandwich and a bubble tea is still under $10!
If you've never had the pleasure of enjoying some authentic Portuguese chicken, well then I really feel for you because it's definitely one of the most delicious things ever. Romados is home to some of the best chicken in all of Montreal and it's totally affordable.
You can get a chicken sandwich for only $5.75 or you can get a whole combo meal with fries, salad and chicken for only $9.75! Plus you have to try some of their unreal Pastel de Nata's!
6. Sammi & Soup Dumplings
Definitely my favourite on this list. This amazing dumpling spot is just up the street from my apartment and my roommates and I go here more than I should admit to.. But these dumplings are just so delicious! They have so many unreal flavours and the steamed ones are filled with 'soup' making it extra tasty. Most of their soup dumplings are around $7.50-$8.50 and they come with 10 dumplings! This should definitely be your next lunch spot.
7. El Rey Del Taco
This amazing taco spot is located right in the Jean Talon market and should definitely be your next stop for lunch. Their tacos are so authentic and delicious you'll probably give up on 3 Amigos for good. They are also super reasonably priced so don't you worry about breaking the bank at all! Enjoy a full taco plate for under $10!

Okay, so this place has a whole lot of breakfast foods but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy breakfast for lunch here! This little spot in the heart of NDG definitely deserves a mention here because their food is so simple but so so delicious. Everything here is cheap, try the eggs and their classic mash potatoes or a burger loaded with cheese and toppings!
9. Pho Saigon Viet-Nam
If you've been looking for some authentic Vietnamese pho, then look no further because this is the place for you! You should try their classic beef pho or vegetarian, plus many other amazing flavours. A bonus is that most of their pho dishes are under $10! They make so many other delicious dishes like pad thai, pork chops, and make your own spring rolls as well!

Another amazing restaurant that's right near my apartment, that I admittedly go to way too often. Thali is delicious and authentic Indian cuisine that will literally blow your mind. Their 'meat' plates include 2 meats and 1 veggie and are exactly $10. They also offer vegetarian plates for less than $10! Plus they have some amazing samosas you can purchase and everything is fresh and amazing. Take my advice and hit this lunch spot up as soon as possible.
