5 places to fill up for under a fiver
So you’ve forgotten to make lunch again, and your wallet isn’t exactly happy at the prospect of eating out for the third day on the trot… But instead of reaching for the nearest supermarket meal deal, why not support your independents – and get something infinitely more tasty in the process? Here are five places in Sheff city centre to fill up for under £5, just to start you off…
Twisted Burger Company @ The Harley, Glossop Road
Sheffield favourite, Twisted Burger Company, serve up one of the best combos in the city with their MixTape Meal Deal; your choice of patty, topping and sauce with fries, all for a fiver. Don’t fancy a burger? Try their their Crack ‘N’ Cheese dish, complete with mac ‘n’ cheese, diced jalapenos and bacon bits, for a mere £3.50.
The Depot Bakery, Burton Road
If you’re in need of a midday pick me up, head down to The Depot Bakery on Burton Road, for a wide range of delicious breads, pastries and patisseries. A favourite lunch time spot for us since Exposed HQ relocated to this part of town, we recommend their fresh sausage rolls with homemade relish – also available in a veggie option – guaranteed to fill you up for under £5.
The Street Food Chef, Arundel Street, Pinstone Street, Glossop Road and Sharrow Vale Road
Now with four venues across the city, it’s easier than ever to enjoy a Street Food Chef burrito for lunch – and at just £4.80, might we add. Made fresh to order, choose from chicken, pulled pork, beef or bean chilli to complement traditional recipe ingredients like black beans, rice, iceberg lettuce, sour cream, salsa and jalapeños.
The Fat Cat, Alma Street, Kelham Island
You can’t go wrong with proper pub food, and at The Fat Cat they know how to do it well. Found in the heart of Kelham Island, standout menu choices include Kelham sausage & Yorkshire pudding and vegetarian option minted courgette & tomato pie, both served with potatoes and peas.
Harland Café, John Street
Surrounded by practising musicians, artists, producers and students, Harland Café is often a hub of creativity at lunchtimes; catch a busking session whilst eating one of their sandwiches or paninis (for under £4.30).
