Is the $5.00 meal the new $10.00 meal? Pubs all over Sydney have been tempting diners with $10.00 Steak and Chips deals for a couple of years. Now, there are a few eateries that are offering $5.00 meals to entice customers through the door and I certainly haven't been backwards in coming forward to sample some of these bargains.
The Liverpool Catholic Club's $5.00 daily member meals are unbeatable value. Try Monday night's Honey Glazed Christmas Ham, Friday's New York Steak or the Seafood Basket for Sunday lunch. All meals are served with chips, vegetables or salad.
Another suburban club getting into the $5.00 action is the Cabramatta Bowling Club. The menu here is Thai- Lao with dishes like Paw Paw Salad, BBQ Pork, Ox Tongue, Larb Dib, Fish Cakes and Chicken Feet Salad.
The pubs aren't going to let the clubs get away with offering bargains like that without a fight. The Bat and Ball at Surry Hills is offering a limited $5.00 lunch menu which include Spaghetti Bolognaise, a Bacon, Egg and Chips or Soup of the Day.
The fast fooderies are thriving on the competition. KFC's $5.00 lunch box is full of fat filled goodies. It's packed with a crispy sub, wicked wing, chips, potato and gravy and a can of Pepsi. You don't have to show your ID to buy a McHappy meal. You can avoid the burgers/chips/coke and take the low cal option with a fruit bag, mini wrap and orange or apple juice for $4.45, all with a toy!
So can you beat these? Do you know where the best value $5.00 meal (or less) is in Sydney?
