Need to re-fuel?
We all know this industry doesn’t exactly bring cash in by the truckload, so here’s some yummy, cheap bites to keep you going.
La Condesa, 234 Johnston street, Fitzroy
Inspired by Mexico City’s bohemian quarter, La Condesa is a great little place to stock up on chorizo and guacamole. Offering any 3 tacos for $12, delicious share platters and an abundance of tequila, La Condesa is Fitzroy’s favourite taqueria.

Don Don, 198 Little Lonsdale street, Melbourne
They’ll have your food ready before you can collect your change. All the Don you can dream of for under $10. Yum Yum!

Mr Burger, 364 Chapel street, South Yarra
Intimidated by huge menus? There are only four options at Mr Burger, an immediate selling point for those who like their buns basic. Trucker chips are their speciality: fries, bacon, cheese and “special” sauce.
