Toronto Eats Under $5: Sometimes even your bad luck has a stroke of bad luck. Don’t believe me? It so happened once that I forgot my files for a meeting I was supposed to attend the next day in Toronto. The good part was my limousine transfer ride was booked, but things took a turn for worse when a snowstorm hit the city.
And you know what else could have gone wrong? In my hurry to catch a flight I had to reschedule my limousine ride and while I was busy making the call, in the complete rush I forgot my wallet in my apartment, something I realized when I felt hungry.
Yeah, sounds like a rough day? Sure it was. It was then I realized being out of cash is much worse than waiting for a flight; at least you can get a cheap coffee at the airport.
And not too late after that thought I went looking for a place that could buy me a meal just under $5! (It was all I had in my pocket).
Toronto can Surprise you with a List of Cheap Eats!
Despite the bad starting of the day, it turns out Toronto is a well-garnished city with all types of foods and flavors, so whatever you crave; you can have it even under $5. Just my luck, airport limo Toronto was all booked beforehand so that was a huge relief for me. And now I was in hunting for cheap eats to make it through the snowy day.
And guess what? I found three cheap eats, simple and selling delicious cozy menus just within the short budget.
1. Patties Express
A limited budget can throw you off the hook. But that’s why Patties Express will save the day with two patties for under $4.39!
Jump to 4 Elm Street to taste the spicy chicken or even coco bread. These are a must-have to satisfy your appetite under the tight budget and also let you explore your cravings. If you are a vegetarian by any chance you still have the option for veg patties. Once you have a good bite you will come back for more.
2. Food and Liquor
If you happen to travel on the weekday to 1610 Queen Street W then you can have your happy hour at Food and Liquor.
Five food items and five different varieties of beers cost $5! But this menu does come with a time slot i.e. 5 pm-7 pm on weekdays. I was above and beyond with the joy as it was near to my meeting place so if you are on a quick office break and looking for a budget-control eatery you will find your way here.
3. Square Boy
Does it sound silly if you are riding on an exclusive airport limo and happen to have cheap eats? Well, things can go awry anytime so no judgment here. Bad things can happen to anyone at any time, right? So if you can’t make it to a posh place, and you need a burger or maybe a hot sandwich, this is your place for the go.
It’s under $5 so you can eat a burger just for $3 (I know I didn’t believe it either when I first heard it).
At the end of the day, I had a great meeting, got the proposal, and had the chance to explore the best cheap eats in Toronto! Cheap food is not an illusion, it can be lifesaving.
