Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant area has built quite the food reputation, offering some seriously good (and cheap!) eats. So when hunger calls, here are a few spots to treat yourself to a fine meal for just $10 or less.
Hawkers Delight Deli
A taste of Singapore in Vancouver, Hawkers Delight is a hole-in-the-wall Singaporean restaurant on Main. Popular dishes include Nasi Goreng, Laksa Noodles, Hainanese Chicken Rice, and Roti. Prices start at $5 and offer generous portions that will leave your stomach and wallet satisfied.

Lucy’s Eastside Diner
It’s 3 a.m. and you’re hungry? Lucy’s Eastside Diner has you covered. This 24-hour retro joint on Main Street is known for its full-flavoured portions of burgers, fries, and milkshakes for all under $10.

Miura Waffle Milk Bar
Sweet and savoury unite, as the classic breakfast waffle works double duty. Try the Baja, which has avocado tempura, tomato, spicy lime mayo and teriyaki sauce, or the Nutty Pig, stuffed with bacon, pecans, whip cream, and chocolate sauce. All ‘waffle sandos’ ring in at $9.99 or less.

In the mood for brunch? Head to The Whip, where all but one menu item is $8 or less. That includes waffles, Eggs Bennys, and the Old Faithful, which has two eggs, toast, hashbrowns, and bacon or ham.
