11 Best Places In Vancouver To Find Food For Under $6

Eating out in Vancouver can cost a fortune, so knowing where the cheap spots are is important for your bank account. Lucky for ya'll, I hate to cook, so I am a master of dining on a budget.

I have eaten at all of these spots - and I'm telling you, the food is always worth the price. If you're broke AF but you got a wicked Tumblr, these 11 spots are sure to cure your hunger pains.

The Dime // 1565 Commercial Dr

One of Vancouver's famous $4.95 food joints. Everything on the menu is $4.95. This one is on the Drive, so if you're up for breakfast before 2pm, I recommend chomping down on the Breakfast Sando.

Hi Five Grilled Cheese // 30 East Cordova

This place is a whole in the wall - literally, it's a little window in the side of the Van Horne Building. But it's the best damn grilled cheese of life. It would be a sin to not try all of them but the Cheddie Vedder is the personal fave. This spot is also the bomb because it's open late on weekends, for all your drunken hunger pains.

The Moose // 724 Nelson St

On Thursdays The Moose has $1 sliders. Mini-burgers. That is all.

The Capitol // 1178 Davie St, Vancouver

Another $4.95 food spot. My personal favorite is the Crispy Chicken Wafflewich. A sandwich to most people, but to me an opportunity for chicken and waffles. Ask for a side of maple syrup and some Tabasco... The poor man's chicken and waffles.

Jack's Place in Army and Navy // 36 W Cordova St

I shit you not, for $1.50, you can get a grilled cheese sandwich that will cure that tummy rumble. Nothing like some Kraft Singles between two pieces of white bread.

Hastings Warehouse // 156 W Hastings St

$4.95 for a burger with bacon and a side of fries. Pretty much a no brainer. But be careful, because they charge extra for everything.

Bon's off Broadway // 2451 Nanaimo St

Bon's is an East Van staple. $2.95 for a huge breakfast with enough grease to soak up all of last night's Jameson.

Bao Down // 12 Powell St

Gastown's trendiest Asian Fusion joint. I'm addicted to the Bao Chicka Bao Bao, and for $6, I ain't complaining.

Viet Sub // 520 Robson St

The bombest Vietnamese subs for under $5.

Sushi Dragon // 614 W Broadway

For all you vegetarians out there this is the spot when your broke AF. 16 rolls and a miso soup for $5.95.

Wakwak Burger formerly Hamburger $2.85 // 511 Granville St

After some rebranding, they changed their name from Hamburger $2.85 to Wakwak Burger. They have updated their menu a bit, and it now includes a Japanese style burger as well as the original hamburgers and cheeseburgers for $2.85.

Owner Giorgio Taverniti told Narcity he decided to pause indoor dining on the opening day of vaccine certificates in Ontario because he doesn't "think people are ready right now."

If you've ever been to Gastown, you already know that it's the place to go for the mysterious adventure of your dreams. Hole-in-the-wall vintage stores, old architecture, and vibrant shops lining the streets all work to set the mood of this Vancouver neighbourhood.

A recent addition is a new bar called The Forge, which just opened this July, hidden within Irish-style Smith's Bar & Restaurant. With a little luck of the Irish, it's been a huge hit with locals as a place where they can grab a pint and enjoy some live music.
