Vancouver: Favorite Cheap Eats?

What are your favorite cheap eats? Lets says <$10 Vancouver area.

Pita Wrap Cafe (Dunsmuir @ Seymour)
seriously, $3.50 breakfast in downtown vancouver and their middle eastern food is so so good. The portions are massive and their food is so tasty. Family run and very friendly. The line ups at lunch can be quite long but worth the wait. I dont think there is anything on the menu for over $10.

House of Dosa (Kingsway @ Clark)
$5.99 Dosa on Monday, come early or come late, the line ups can be quite long but well worth it. You can order any dosa for 5.99. They also have good deals on Tuesday and Wednesday as well.

Save on Meats - $6 burger (you cant even get a big mac at McDonald for this) - gastown
For price vs. quality, this is the best burger in Vancouver -- comes with fries or a salad. I dont even really like burgers that much, but this one has won me over. Also as a side note, I have gotten some pretty amazing milkshakes from here (earl gray, cherry coke, etc).

Mango Thai (Westend)
They have a $6.99 lunch special with multiple dishes to choose from (they all come with a spring roll, rice and salad). Very good value.

IGA Marketplace (Richards @ Robson)
I am not sure if all locations have these items, but they have prepackaged Indian Takeaway dishes (butter chicken, veggie, daal, tandori) from Sutra an indian place located down the street. They also have tasty locally made soups that are available hot in kettles for take away or you can buy them prepackaged to take home as well.

Saravanaa Bhavan (Broadway @ Oak)
Okay this one is breaking my rule a little bit if you go for the buffet in regards to price but this place provides really good value non the less. There are so many items to choose from (all veg) and their food actually has some kick to it. Many of their menu items are under $10 if you choose to order off the menu. Highly recommend.

Yamato Sushi (Davie @ Seymour)
Vancouver has a lot of cheap sushi places, but I have found that so far Yamato has them beat in the quality department. They have really good sushi special prices. Primarily takeout, only about 6 small 2-3 people tables inside.
