Cheap Eats in Sydney & Surrounds



Tio’s – Surry Hills

Tio’s popped up a few years ago, and it hasn’t left. For good reason. Free popcorn, tasty tequila, and one hell of a vibe. Give the bartender your bra, listen to some surf rock tunes, and drink the night away. It’s way too easy to stay here, it’s even easier to never leave. They also serve up a couple of different tacos to quench your midnight hunger.

Batch Brewing Co – Marrickville

Born out of a garage in Marrickville, Batch is quickly becoming the spot to have a beer on the weekend. In true Newtown style you will be treated to bearded men in golfer hats serving you some of the most delicious pale ale in town. Grab yourself a tasting plate, or if you’re interested jump on a brewery tour.


Thai la-ong – Newtown

Newtown is a Thai mecca in the borders of the city, don’t let anyone tell you differently. A five minute walk down King Street will have you swamped in smells of fish sauce and coriander. Thai la-ong is an institution with the locals here. Every night of the week you will have hoards of Uni students, couples, and hipsters converging on this cheap and tasty bite. What makes it better, and even more affordable is its BYO rules, bring one bottle bring the whole case, they don’t mind. Grab dinner and an entree for $15.

Baja Cantina – Glebe

Come here on a Monday and get Nachos, Fajitas and Sangria for $40. Grab some extra wraps on the side and you’ve got a meal for three people. This funky little restaurant has a beer garden, frozen margaritas and some of the tastiest Mexican in Sydney. Meals are huge so if you think something is too expensive it’s because you can share it with someone else.

Hive Bar – Erskineville

Drop into this local hole in the wall for a quick feed and a couple of tasty beers. With lots of local brews on tap, you are in craft beer heaven. Grab a $5 cheeseburger or two, they are pretty tasty. Certain days in the week they rock old school vinyl and allow you to pick your favourite hits.
