If you’re spending the week scrounging around for loose change in the sides of couch cushions just so you can live to eat another day then we’ve got you covered with Sydney’s top 10 cheap eats this week. From Mi Goreng toasties on George St to Australia’s best sausage rolls on Bourke St, you’ve got plenty of options, without the price tag.

1. Marrickville Pork Roll

$8 pork rolls

For a crowd favourite don’t go past the crackling pork belly rolls at Marrickville. These beauties will set you back a measly $8 and we promise you it’ll be the best $8 ever spent.

$5.50 sausage rolls

Take a trip down memory lane with Bourke Street Bakery sausage rolls made from the heavens. Don’t take our word for it though, this Sydney bakery took home the award for best sausage roll in Australia for 2019. So don’t be a flake and grab one of these flakey boys before they’re all gone.

10. South Dowling Sandwiches

$9 sandwiches

You can’t beat a good sandwich especially when it’s only $9 and contains all the goods. Choose from tuna, ham, smoked salmon or even chicken schnitty. These guys have it all and then some. Or if you’re looking to fork out a few extra coins then we recommend trying one of their specialty Brad Pitt sandwiches for $12.
