15 Restaurants In Ottawa You Can Eat At For $5, $10, And $15

How many times a week do you say out loud "I have no money"? Probably way too much, and that should not be a reason to not have fun. Fun meaning going out to eat, because obviously. 

Unless you know the tricks off the city, it's impossible to know where to go when you're on a budget. Maybe you're struggling to find this months rent but it's your BFFs birthday and you want to treat her. Or maybe you just deserve to eat something other than tuna and rice as a meal. You do, you really do. 

I mean, you could do a ton of research, but I'd rather do that for you. Most of these are full meals, but some are delicious snacks when you don't want to pay $17 for a cute ice cream cone for Instagram. Or rather than spending $5 on a shot, use it for a delicious breakfast that will fill you up for part of the day. You can do a lot more with $5 than you think, my friends. 

So if you're a broke babe like the rest of us, then let me show you all the ways to enjoy your foodie lifestyle without breaking the bank.
