Lyon on a budget

brighton312 | Mar 5, 2011 06:04 AM

Does anyone have any suggestions for places to try some great Lyonnaise cuisine on a budget? I've read the other Lyon threads and would love to try some bouchons, but most are out of my price range. I can spend about 10-12 euro on a lunch plate, and 15 on dinner. Maybe one or two 20-euro splurge meals. Realizing that my restaurant options are limited, where are the best places to buy inexpensive groceries and produce that, while not a restaurant meal, will still let me try the flavors of Lyon? Of course I will be visiting Les Halles. I'm especially looking for places in or near Villeurbanne. Thank you very much for any ideas!
