It’s time for the Smart Saver again and this time I would like to give you a few cheap options for my favourite activity; eating.
Bon’s Off Broadway
If you partied a little too hard at PuB NiGHT you might want to get a good breakfast to come back to life. A cheap place to go is Bon’s Off Broadway. Here you can have breakfast and brunch for only $2.95. Obviously you shouldn’t expect a 5-star restaurant for those prices, but the food is actually pretty good. They are located on 2451 Nanaimo Street and are open Monday – Friday from 7:00 AM till 8:00 PM and Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 AM till 8:00 PM.
A great place to get lunch if you’re in Gastown is Hi-Five. They make a few different grilled cheeses varying from $3 to $6. However, they are only open on Thursday from 6:00 PM till midnight and Friday and Saturday from 8:00 PM till 2:00 AM.
If you like tacos Gringo is the place for you. This cool, upbeat and very colourful taco bar is located in Gastown and their prices start at $2.75 per taco and $3.75 for a Lager or Pale Ale.
Another option for tacos is going to Tacotime. This fast food like restaurant for tacos has four locations in downtown and serves tacos, burritos and a few other dishes. There is also the option to make your dish a meal. You can find one of these in the food court right next to our office.
The Hastings Warehouse / The Famous Warehouse / The Capital
These are the places where the dishes are only $5 each. The menus are all quite similar and even though it’s only 5 dollar, the food is pretty good. The Hastings Warehouse is located at 156 West Hastings Street, The Famous Warehouse at 989 Granville Street and The Capital on 1778 Davie Street.
Street Food Vancouver
Another great option for food is a food truck, you can find them around the city and a lot of them have really good food. A good way to find one is by using the Street Food Vancouver App. This will show you which ones are open and where you can find them.
I hope to see you all tonight at The Charles Bar!
