It is approaching midday and your in the middle of the Brisbane CBD. You're hungry like the wolf, but you only have loose change in your wallet - where can you go for a quick feed?

In this listing we have selected some of the very best cheap lunch spots in Brisbane, and I am sure many of our keen readers will have their own recommendations to share.

Taro's Ramen & Cafe Facebook Profile

To kick off this listing, I'll start with a particularly busy lunch spot; Taro's Ramen & Café. The weekday lunch menu features dishes around the $10 mark and you can choose from a chicken schnitzel sandwich, fish & chips or veggie patty burger, or opt for one of their renowned ramen dishes - which are priced between $10 and $15. The tonkotsu ramen is a particular favourite, as is the tsukemen. Yum.

Still crave Japanese? Kadoya offers a range of bento boxes for $13.80. Choose from teriyaki beef, pork, chicken, fish or tofu or a chicken or pork katsu variety. Each bento box has rice, tofu, miso soup and salad. For less than a tenner, enjoy one of their beef or pork udon noodle soups or the house special, the spicy samurai undo, which is also priced under $10. The various curry dishes are also popular and are priced at $9.80 - there is even a cheese curry option. Has anyone tried that?

Over at Brew, one can enjoy soup and bread for $4 at lunchtime or a gourmet sandwich for $8.50 - choose from beef, chicken, turkey, ham, salami and vegetarian varieties or opt for bruschetta. Sure it is a limited menu - but for under a tenner you can have a satisfying meal here.

Aja Coffeehouse Facebook Profile

Aja Coffeehouse
is another lunch hotspot; menu highlights include the Aja omelette with rice ($12), vermicelli salad with poached chicken ($11) and the nasi goreng ($12). Most dishes on the lunch/dinner menu are priced between $11 and $19, but you can have one of their gourmet burgers for $12 - choose from snapper, chicken, steak and veggie varieties.

There are of course, many more great lunch spots in the Brisbane CBD, so if you know of a great cafe or restaurant which has a great lunch deal, please let us know about it by leaving a comment.

As always, we look forward to your feedback.

I still think anything over $10 is expensive for lunch. There's a Japanese take out in Post Office Sq that does selected meals with rice for $5! Bargain!
