Whether you’re craving a quick bite, dumpling delivery or an at-home Mexican feast, these tasty takeaway cheap eats won’t break the bank. Remember - things are a little different right now. Contact individual venues for more information and check your travel radius before visiting.

Pizza Pizza Pizza

Slices of NYC-style pie at Pizza Pizza Pizza cost just five bucks a pop. That includes the oozy triple cheese or de rigueur pepperoni and pepper. Whole pizzas (8 massive slices) go for $22 on Uber Eats, big enough to feed a crew of famished housemates. Double check opening hours and pre-order info on their socials.

Heartbaker BunMee

Uncover a hidden pork roll gem in Melbourne's tiniest laneway.  Heartbaker Bun Mee has six fresh flavours, including signature crispy pork belly and and caramelised tofu. There's even a vegan roll for plant-based foodies. All the banh mi clock in at under ten bucks, so it'd be rude not to smash a Vietnamese iced coffee or two while you're there.

Seoul's famous street toast

Bong Seoul Toast (or Sukbong) is a famous chain with more than 200 stores in Korea. Their one and only Australian store just opened in Healeys Lane. Start simple with egg and cheese, or go OTT with added hash browns and beef bulgogi. Everything on the menu is under $11, and the signature bulgogi toastie will only set you back $8.
