Sunday Night Dinner Approx $10-15 per person


I have a friend in from out of town and we are going out for dinner tomorrow night. His budget is only $15, all in. Looking for some suggestions. We are open to any type of food excluding chinese (having it for new years) and pho.
So far on my list I have Bahn Mi Boys, The Stockyards, Rose and Son, Hey Meatball, and Rebozos. We are open to any area in the city.

Thank you for your help

  1. Hmmm, not sure you'll be very satisfied with rose and sons for $15. Kinton Ramen has a great rep lately....or Santosei, perhaps?

    1. 15 all in at Stockyards or Rose and Sons would be really stretching it...

      To be honest, with that budget, I wouldn't go to any "restaurants", even eating ramen would be a stretch at $15 as you would be forgoing drinks or any appetizer....I'd go to korea town if I were you!

      1. Arepa on Queen would fit the budget, or one of many Korean restos like Buk Chang Dong Soon Tofu on Bloor, or maybe Ethiopian like Lalibela or Sheba.

        1. Re: Bahn Mi Boys. It is good food and you can get a lot of food for $15... Don't recall if you have been there from other threads but just a heads up that it is a "Fast casual" type of place vs. a sitdown place... So not much of a linger and enjoy your meal type of spot.

          I think the suggestion for Korea town area is a good one

            You can do very nicely in Koreatown, on Bloor St. between Bathurst and Christie, at either the aforementioned Buk Chang Dong Soon Tofu or, on the same block, Tofu Village. A big, nourishing bowl of soup/stew at either joint, along with complimentary banchan (snacks) and tea, will set you back no more than $10 (tax and tip included). The cheapest good deal in town. I lean towards the vegetarian soup/stew at Tofu Village, but both places are solid, with alert service. Close by the Christie subway stop.
