If you smell the grilled onions and grilled lamb, you know you’re in the right place. La Baguette Café serves up good-size portions and you can easily eat for around $5.00! You can’t beat this one, and if you want a little extra spice, just asked for the hot sauce.

Another option is to check out the street vendors. Yes, some offer stale food that isn’t worth the price you pay, no matter how cheap it is. Ask the locals for their recommendation. Let them know you don’t have a lot of money to spend. They’ll have first-hand knowledge and point you in the right direction. Take advantage of it!
