Popular with the teen set, this Taiwanese-style BBT shop has a menu of cheap, satisfying eats. Look for “light snack” options like Thick Toast with spreads, Taiwanese style fried chicken, fries, and fish cakes, as well as heftier portions of noodle soups, meat with rice, or casseroles. For fans of tea, they have an assortment available, including the option to add pearls.

Saffron Fine Indian Take Out

Saffron is a small, independent, family-run take-out only spot in Brentwood where you can get affordable eats–including plentiful vegetarian options. Of course you can mix and match a variety of appetizers to keep on budget, but you’d also do well with their entrees; the veggie dishes are $11.95 each, and the meat ones $13.95.
