10 places to grab a budget-friendly bite
Maccas, KFC, Oporto, and Hungry Jacks. There's your list. Enjoy! Just kidding. Many a time we want a quick and easy feed when out, but this can sometimes add up significantly over the the week. So, I decided to set a hypothetical daily food budget and put it to the test in Hurstville Westfield. What could I grab for lunch for $6 or less?

Lower food court

1. Enthaice

You can score an exotic and not so expensive bite to eat here. With fish cakes for $1 each and veggie spring rolls for $1.20 each, a good number of pieces can be picked up given our budget.

2. Where's Marcel

This contemporary coffee shop all about keeping it simple offer a deal - apple raisin toast plus small coffee for something under $6. I totally forgot to note this one but I remember it sits comfortably in the budget.

3. Atlantic Fish & Chips

It was a pleasant surprise to see this place offers a battered fish fillet for just $5, and a crumbed one for $6. If you're more in the mood for greens you may get a small salad for $6. This includes seafood and pasta salads.

4. Zohres Kebab

Our budget won't get you a heap of the goodies from here, and I know many may say a kebab just isn't a kebab without meat, but if you're staying conscious of prices, the salad roll ($6) should satiate the hunger.

5. Ken's Bento

This new, brightly lit addition to this food court caters to those looking to eat on the go, all while keeping it budget-friendly. Various sushi rolls hover around the $3 price mark.

6. Sandwich Stack - Salads

Light and ideal for summer. Regular size salad boxes go for exactly $6 ($4 for a small). If you feel like South-East Asian flavours go the Thai Beef Salad. They have Greek and Caesar salads too. The Greek came complete with olives and feta, great for Mediterranean cravings.

7. Toros Kebabs - Kids Kebab Rolls

I know I often underestimate how filling a kebab can be. A baby kebab from here can be bought for just $6, and can be a sufficient tie over, especially when still full of meat slices, fresh vegetables, and tasty sauces. A good alternative to the salad roll mentioned before.

8. Flapping Fish Fresh Seafood

A greek salad can be bought from here for $3.50 or $4.50 . Eat green while eating cheap.

9. Muffin Break

There seems to be a bit more choice here, with most of the savoury muffins sitting under $6.

10. Mirch Indian & Nepalese Cuisine

Now this sounds like a hot deal to me. Grab a small take away Chicken Tikka curry, rich in flavour, for just $3. Samosas and Naan bread pieces are also $2-3.50.

11. Hotwoks Chinese Cuisine - BBQ buns and Dim Sim

Feel like a taste of Chinese? A nice discovery was this outlet selling juicy BBQ pork buns for $2.20 each. One of these and two dim sims ($1.60) will still feed you for under $6 (totalling $5.40).

12. Rockin' Rolls Sushi

Everything except for the box sets are $3 or under. They also have prawn parcels, vegetable tempura and gyoza, all under $6 per piece.

So, if you find yourself in Hurstville, and tired of the usual fast-food outlets, pay a visit to one of these budget-friendly options. They are substantial enough, varied in culture, tasty, and in some cases rather lean and healthy.

Great article! If you ever feel like wandering a short walk away from Westfield Hurstville is a Vietnamese bakery (think it is called Daily Bakery), on Forest Rd opposite the Ritz hotel, where you can get Pork Rolls (banh mi) for under $4.
