Eating is one of the best parts of travelling. Cheap eats makes the whole experience even better. Let me share my top 10 cheap eats in Sydney. 

1. Marukame Udon

32 Victoria Ave, Chatswood NSW 2067

This place serves an array of delicious Japanese udon, rice bowls and tempuras. A casual dining spot to fill your stomach without sacrificing on taste or quality. 

I ordered a large Wagyu beef rice bowl for under $10. (that’s hard to beat!)

2.Frankie's Pizza

50 Hunter St, Sydney NSW 2000

Get yourself a slice for just $4 at this very cool pizzeria speak easy in the city centre. 

It might not be the famous $1 slice in New York, but you also get toppings other than cheese and tomato sauce. Frankie’s also serves up some great craft beers, so grab a slice and a pint for around $10!

3. Dixon House Food Court

Little Hay St, Haymarket NSW 2000 (Chinatown)

Before you skip this one because of the words “food court”, DON’T. 

Dixon House food court is home to a lot of mom and pop eateries serving yummy cheap Chinese food. Some of these places have been around for decades! 

I got myself a large bowl of fish ball noodle soup for $9.

4. Bourke Street Bakery

4/23 Barangaroo Avenue, Barangaroo NSW 2000

A sausage roll isn’t going to break the bank no matter where you get it. However, if you are going to get a sausage roll, then you might as well get a good one. 

The pork and fennel sausage roll at Bourke Street bakery is deliciously seasoned with a crispy flaky pastry. All for just $5.5

5. Marrickville Pork Roll

Steam Mill Lane, Haymarket NSW 2000

This cute little place in the city centre make some really nice banh mi (Vietnamese bread roll sandwiches). Fresh veggies, appetising sauces and different types of meats and pates. 

I got a Vietnamese pork roll for $6. 

6. Harry's Cafe de Wheels

Cowper Wharf Road &, Dowling St, Woolloomooloo NSW 2011

Harry de Wheels is a must visit if you’re in Sydney. Serving fresh meat pies for over 70 years, head over to their original meat pie cart in Woolloomooloo. 

I got the Tiger pie for $8.9. Delicious mushy peas, mash potato on top of a peppery beef pie!

7. Papa Rich

Multiple locations 

Papa Rich is a large chain store serving amazing Malaysian food. But the best part is the cheap prices you can get. 

I got a roti canai with 3 sauces for $8.50 

8. Chargrill Charlie's

27 Burns Bay Rd, Lane Cove NSW 2066

You can’t go wrong with chicken and chips. At Chargrill Charlie’s you’ll find juicy grilled chicken with many side options for less than $10. 

I got the quarter chicken and chips for just $9.9 

9. Mappen Noodle House

Shop 11/537-551 George St, Sydney NSW 2000

“A retro Japanese self-serve rice and noodle bar featuring udon and soba soups, tempura and toppings.” 

I got a regular beef udon for $6.9. Great food that’s fast and cheap. 

10. Jimmy's Recipe

The Galleries (Ground Floor/500 George St, Sydney NSW 2000)

Fantastic casual dining spot for all your Malaysian food classics. Jimmy’s Recipe’s laksa is something you need to try. 

Vegetable laksa for $10.5
