The Best $10 Lunches In Barrie
Eating out is such a rewarding experience. The fun of picking out a menu item. Not having any dishes to clean. And the anticipation of your meal arriving, heightened by every passing plate, can be as vibrant a sensation as…well, maybe not THAT exciting.
Even for the casual trencherman, a lunch at a restaurant is a treat. And yet, dining away from home can quickly decimate your bank balance.
What’s a foodie on a budget to do? Luckily Barrie’s menu of eateries includes a choice selection of joints with great nosh at a prime price.

There is no such thing as too much barbecue. Particularly when said barbecue is an exotic selection bringing the sumptuous tastes of a far away land to your own backyard.
Skewers on Clapperton offers up lunch in a grilled Korean style, for under $10. Drizzled in thick, sticky sauces, the eponymous skewer is a popular south Korean street food comprised of chicken and scallions grilled on a stick. Add in a side of rice and salad in a bowl and you’ve got a mouth watering deal.
If Thai is more your jam, might we suggest a visit to Thai Bamboo. They offer a varied lunch menu replete with ginger chicken, red or green Thai curry beef, Thai chicken panang, mango chicken, or Thai spicy basil. All priced to get you out the door without breaking a ten spot.
The appeal of pasta and meatballs is universal. The next time you are craving something tomato-based when the noon hour strikes, the Italian Eatery has you covered. Pick between veggie, chicken, veal or meatball sandwiches, or a panzerotti packed with cheese, sauce, and pepperonis. And that is to say nothing of their Paninis!
Sometimes the best lunch is a good breakfast. If traditional eggs and bacon-esque fare is what you need to power through the lunch hour, there are a couple of locales that will fit your budget.
Midway Diner has a hearty country breakfast plate for just 8.99, with double eggs and your choice of side.
Closer to downtown? Dunlop Street Diner also provides a two egg meal repast with optional accompaniments, for 8.99.
