    It's always great to save some pennies here and there, so every now and then I visit some cheap eats around Adelaide to satisfy my dining out craving. You will be surprised how easy it is to get affordable good food, so I've put together a little list of mine to share with you.

     

    1. Dumpling King

     

    Dumpling King gives you a brilliant feed for an average of $9.80 per meal. A plate of 15 fried pork dumplings or perhaps a bowl of beef soup noodles, maybe even crispy skin chicken on rice. A large majority of their dishes come under $10. Located on two convenient locations at Moonta Street, Chinatown and King William Street CBD, this is a perfect lunch or dinner place. I love their juicy pork dumplings and Spicy Dan Dan Noodles.

    2. Mamak Corner

     

    Situated on Bank Street Mamak Corner is a Malaysian Indian Muslim style food that gets served in what Malaysians call "Mamak Stalls", traditionally a cheap and affordable eatery mostly open 24 hours a day. Mamak Corner's prices are well worth it for a very delicious and generous portion of Malaysian Curry Chicken or Beef with rice, Nasi Goreng or Fried Mamak Noodles for under $10.

    3. Fancy Burger

     

     

    Fancy Burger is up on Main Road, Blackwood and is a great burger bar serving up high quality fresh ingredients. All their buns are baked fresh everyday and patties are 95% fat free using only high quality local produce. Sauces are made on site too. Beef, chicken, lamb and vege burgers start from $9.50. My personal favourite is Hot Chicky - chicken breast fillet, char grilled peppers, cheddar cheese, salad, relish and smoked chilli mayo at $10.90

    4. Ajisen Ramen

     

    This is one of my favourite places in the city. Ajisen Ramen is situated on Leigh Street along with Rigatoni's and Casablabla but the price point is quite different. This place is always packed out but a very good feed. Their ramen noodle bowls cost $11 and I always walk out feeling full and satisfied. Beautiful pork broth with beautiful ramen noodles and your choice of topping such as Karaage chicken, Paiku (pork rib), BBQ Pork, Seafood, Vegetarian, Chargrilled Rare Beef and a lot more. My favourites are Paiku Ramen and Chasyu Ramen (Pork Slices).

    5. Soonta

     

    I usually get at least two Vietnamese rolls every time I get a chance, one for now one for later. Open on James Place, Waymouth Street and Rundle Place food court, they serve up fresh and healthy Bahn Mi (Vietnamese Rolls) with a choice of 5 Spice Roasted Pork Belly with amazing crunch, Lemon grass Chicken, BBQ Pork, Meat Ball, Teriyaki Chicken or Tempura Chicken. For $6.50 they really pack it full of meat, cucumber, pickled carrots and coriander. Delicious healthy lunch. For the carb conscious, salad bowls are available for about $7 with your choice of meat or tofu. It is a big bowl of salad with freshly sourced and cut vegetables daily.

    See previous cheap bread post for our top cheap eats :biglaugh:

     

    Although if we do eat out the food hall in China Town seems cheap enough and we tried the Creperie on Henley Beach Road a couple of Sundays ago and that wasn't too bad (it was the drinks that pushed that one up).

    I tend to avoid the city like the plague. One place I really like is a noodle place, who's name totally escapes me at Elizabeth shopping centre opposite the cinema. Beautiful duck noodle soup. :-)

    Banana Leaf of a lunch time, Hong Fat by the market, Sugar Cane, $10 Schnitzel on a Tuesday at the Wakefield and Burp on Hindley Street is pretty good too. I also like a Yiros from City Cross too :)

    If you want cheap fast food Asian style, then Bing Boy isn't bad.

    Love this post! My favourite cheapies include Bings - which is next to Dumpling King in China Town - better than dumpling king IMO. Also in the city, Mandoo on Bank St (tiny road between Hindley and North Terrace) - Korean dumplings - so yummy!

    Continuing the Asian theme can recommend Adelaide Pho (199 Waymouth St) and Nanyang Café (Renaissance Arcade) for a cheap/tasty lunch when in the city.
