Tips For Finding Cheap Food While Traveling

Find the Tastiest, Cheapest Food While Traveling Anywhere

Exploring new cities means exploring new food, and it's a glorious part of traveling. A limited budget doesn't mean your options are equally constrained, it just means you need to know where to look for cheap and delicious eats.
Money magazine has some helpful, universal tips for anyone who's hungry in a strange place and doesn't want to spend a fortune.

  • Money instructs tourists to "Head for hard-to-find spots that are patronized mainly by locals. . . . Don't know any residents? Ask your hotel bellman where he eats."
  • Ethnic food is usually a good bet. Money explains, "Ethnic restaurants serve customers who are both discerning and price-sensitive. The larger a given immigrant group in an area, the higher the quality of food tends to be."
  • Aim for areas with competition. For example, "If you're traveling where there's a large Vietnamese neighborhood, say, make a beeline there for dinner and you can't go wrong."
