Restaurants in Montreal where you can eat well for $10 or less

By Marie-Pier Hamon – on in Food
Are you convinced every restaurant in Montreal is expensive? You're totally wrong! Here are 10 super affordable restaurants where the food is delicious!

It is very pleasant to go to the restaurant, we are sure you agree. However, it is not pleasant to pay $50 or even $100 for a meal. If your weekly “going out” budget is limited, it usually means you don’t have much money left to go on a terrace with friends or to go to a concert. Thankfully, it is possible to eat in restaurants in Montreal for a modest sum. In fact, there are many restaurants that offer a very appetizing menu for $10 or less. You don’t believe us? Here are 10 culinary establishments to discover right away!

1 Cinko

This very trendy and affordable restaurant is located in the Latin Quarter in Montreal. You will find a colourful setting, vinyl placemats and a very varied menu offering items that all cost around $5! It is a perfect place to go when you feel like a snack or when you want to go out to a restaurant without spending a fortune. We suggest you try the “Cinko hot dog”: an Italian sausage, mac and cheese and red cabbage with a Meaux mustard mayonnaise. Original and delicious!

L’EntrepĂ´t, like Cinko, offers a large variety of dishes for as little as $5.95. The atmosphere is always festive in this Plateau restaurant, which is open from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. so if you were planning on going there for a quiet meal, it might not be the perfect place for this!

We bet L’Gros Luxe will become one of your favourite cheap eats if it’s not already…
