Just when you thought you have enough money to survive another week, you realize you just went overbudget last week–again. But don’t worry, you don’t have to live on canned goods or water therapy, there are lots of cheap eats around the corner that can get you through these grueling days of your work life. Scroll down to see some of our favorites:
If you thought Giligan’s is only for big group meals, maybe you haven’t tried their Rice All U Can. Starting from Php 99, you can have a scrumptious lunch or dinner with delicious ulam options such as chicken, pork, seafood, and beef, plus unlimited rice. They also come with free soup, so you know you get your money’s worth.
7-Eleven isn’t called convenience store for nothing: walk by a street in Metro Manila and there will always be a branch near you. They’re especially convenient for tipid days! Try their Busog Meals and HottaRice which costs just Php 29 and Php 39, respectively. They’re so sulit, you can even buy two.
If you’re craving for some seafood goodness but still on a budget, Pao Tsin is for you. Their dumplings cost around Php 50-60, and you can choose from Hainanese or Lemak rice. Their Asian chicken, which costs around Php 70, is also a must-try. You can hunt them inside mall food courts.
Wendy’s Real Meal Deal is, well, the real deal. For fifty bucks, you can have BBQ burger, Salisbury Steak, Spaghetti or Crunchy Spring Roll for lunch. That means you’ll still have money left for some frosty afterwards!
