Dec 19 2017, 8:54 am

No matter how you cook, braise, cure, smoke, or grill it, pork never disappoints.  So for our fellow hog lovers, Vancity Buzz and Chowmenow found some tasty cheap eats that show just how versatile swines can be. From breakfast right through until dessert, get ready to pig out on these tasty cheap eats for $5 or less!

Windsor Meats

Windsor Meats

If there’s one thing you do this weekend, make sure it’s a trip to Windsor Meats for the porchetta sandwich. You. Are. Welcome.

Merienda Bake Shop

Merienda Bakery

Handmade pork empanadas are $1 each, but they do come with a warning: once you pop, you can’t stop.

Pelican Seafood Restaurant


If you’re prepared to wait in line for a table, the dim sum menu here never disappoints. Almost everything is under five dollars, including three types of steamed or baked BBQ pork buns.

Au Petit Café

Au Petit Cafe

Soft French bread, crispy vegetables, and juicy shredded pork work together in perfect banh mi harmony. Grab one at Au Petit Café for only $4.

Cartems Donuterie


Cartems Donuterie has become a regular buzzword in this city. The Canadian Maple Whiskey Bacon Doughnut for $3 (tax included) probably has something to do with it.
