Date: 5th November 2020

You’re finally on holiday! You’ve just touched down in Queenstown, just picked up bright blue rental car, just checked in to your lakeside accomodation, just confirmed your reservation for dinner and … (gulp) just realised that 1/2 your holiday budget is gone! Just. Like. That. 

Don’t panic. We know that holidays are expensive so we’ve tracked down a list of all the best cheap eats in Queenstown that a. won’t break the bank and b. will put a smile on your dial. 

Let’s dig in (pun intended)!

Our top picks for Cheap eats around Queenstown

Saigon Kingdom is a must-try for deliciously, authentic Vietnamese food. From the Pho Bo to the barbecued fish, you’ll be eating like kings at a price that won’t sting. Pro Tip: check out the website for lunch time deals!

Balls and Bangles – this one does it all; from the morning coffee and bagel to the arvo sweet treat. And what’s even better? It won’t cost you an arm and/or a leg. The donuts and bagels are freshly homemade in store and topped with all sorts of mouth watering goodies. Situated in the heart of Queenstown, it’s easy to pick up lunch and enjoy it down by the lakeside. 

Take care when passing Gattos Churros. If it’s not the smell that’ll draw you in, then undoubtedly the sight of the churros will be enough to get you! They’re huge, they’re delicious and they’re dangerously affordable!

When you’re on the hunt for a fresh, filling AND affordable meal – look no further than Thai Siam. They do $15 lunches that are packed with flavour. And trust us, the portion sizes won’t leave you going hungry! 

Last but certainly not least, be sure to grab yourself a $10 meal deal from Erik’s Fish and Chips. You’re in for a treat with the delicious piece of hoki, a scoop of crispy fries and a tub of t-sauce. How’s that for a bargain? It’s your classic, finger-licking, fish and chips meal…all for just $10. 

And that wraps up the cheap and cheerful eats Of Queenstown. So get going! Get wining and dining, knowing you don’t have to empty the banks accounts!
