If your bank account has been looking a little empty lately, you're not the only one. But just because it's tight doesn't mean you have to compromise on incredible food. There are foods in Edmonton under $10 and you need to try them all.
Edmonton's food scene is quite underrated if you ask us. The city is filled with amazing restaurants, all of which serve some of the most unique dishes from a variety of cuisines.
While some of those options definitely cost a pretty penny, there are many joints where you can fill up on tasty meals without breaking the bank.
From massive pies and savoury breakfast croissants to some greasy donairs, the items on our list will appeal to you no matter what kind of food you're into.
Though the dishes are under $10, don't let your browsing stop just there. You will find that some of the restaurants have so many delightful offerings at affordable prices that you will want to make plans to go there over and over again.
As Edmontonians, it's so easy to fall into the routine of take-out every single weekend. But sitting at home gets boring after a while, especially when some of these restaurants are designed for a classic dine-in experience.
So if you've been looking for an excuse to hit up the local spots, now's your time.
