Cheap eats in Perth

Perth is known for being an expensive city and it is often hard to find cheap places to eat. As a uni student, I am often in a battle between my love of food and paying for this food. However, I have found some great places that can be classed as “Perth cheap eats”, so that you can literally have your cake and eat it too.

My two favourite cheap places to eat in Perth:

  1. ‘The Local Shack’: This place is an absolute gem, consisting of burgers, salads, chips and great cocktails at such low prices. What more could you possibly want?! A chilled vibe with amazing staff located in the heart of the city, it is perfect for a Friday night out with your friends. It’s my favourite bar in Perth! 418 Murray St, Perth
  2. ‘Yelo’: Not just an amazing ocean view, but healthy yummy food too. Yelo is a great lunch spot for things like a chicken wrap with banana chutney, veggie slice or tuna patties. However lunch doesn’t stop there; finish with the best sweets ever like lemon slice, carrot cake or hazelnut brownie. Prices are great for the quality of the food, you can taste the love invested into every mouthful. 331 West Coast Drive, Trigg
