Fact: we all like to eat out. Sometimes though, towards the end of the month, our dining experiences can turn from indulging in lavish (and expensive) meals to counting coppers and trying to find a restaurant that offers quality and deliciousness without an exorbitant bill following the meal. And having been in that *ahem* “delicate” situation many a time, I’ve come to have a few go-to restaurants in mind when I’m looking for a budget-friendly meal that doesn’t sacrifice taste or quality.

Cup & Roll

Cup & Roll has gone from a tiny home business to a full-fledged franchise in less than a year, and it’s not without cause. The menu offers small cups of dough filled with all kinds of deliciousness, both savory and sweet, which are guaranteed to successfully satisfy any craving you may have, for a bargain! Indeed, the price of these goes from 1,750 LBP to 2,250 LBP a piece, so you can eat as much as you’d like and still end up with a small bill! They have branches in Zalka and Hamra, and provide both catering for events and home deliveries from 10AM to 11PM. You can even order online!

Rod’s Burger

“Prepare to be addicted”, it says on their menu, and I have to agree! When you’re in the mood for that ultimate burger, look no further than Rod's Burger. While they have the regular varieties, they also offer their own twists on burgers, so if you’re in an adventurous mood, go for one of their signature burgers, like the Porky burger or the Brie burger! Dine-in or delivery, the quality is excellent and the taste even better, all for a small fee!

Gout 9

From its convenient location in Achrafieh, Gout 9 really has it all. From a rich breakfast menu to two daily “Plat du jour” options, it offers a wide variety of platters, salads, and sandwiches, and even has a special discount menu for students. For a quick, delicious and budget-friendly bite with a French theme, Gout 9 is the place to go, especially for students who eat out almost every day.

Pizza Della Casa

For all you pizza lovers out there (so, everyone) Pizza Della Casa is a gift from the Italian food gods. Not only is it open -and delivers- 24/7, it also has an amazing standing offer of “buy one get one free”, available for all pizzas and pastas! For the price of one pizza or pasta, you can have two of them. Choose from a wide range of delicious toppings and sauces, any time of day or night! If that’s not a good deal, I don’t know what is.

University Crepy

When someone with a sweet tooth is craving melting, sugary deliciousness, few places can satisfy that craving as well as University Crepy. From its small branch on Bliss Street, it offers crepes filled with whatever you want! Yes, you read that right. You can pick as many toppings as you’d like from their extensive menu, making your own mix of sweetness, or you could go for their own concoctions (everyone must try their infamous “Abou Wadi3” at least once in a lifetime!)
