Super Sandwich – 1115 Sherbrooke Ouest
The fact that every sandwich in this store totals under $4 seems pretty suspicious to most people. “But wait, don’t most sandwiches in Montreal cost twice this much?” Yes, yes they do, but the sandwiches here don’t come with any frills. You got bread, you got meat, you got cheese. You got happiness.
Tips: You really can’t go wrong with one of the traditional meats (e.g. turkey, roast beef, ham).

First Peoples’ House – 3505 Rue Peel
Every Wednesday and Thursday, scrumptious soup and bannock lunches are served at the First Peoples’ House. Learn about indigenous cultures while enjoying yummy food with the community. Seriously, isn’t life the best with free food in hand and good company around?
Tips: Don’t think you’re too cool to dip your bannock in your soup.

Midnight Kitchen – Room 302 in the SSMU building (3480 rue MacTavish)
If you’re into food that’s cheap, delicious and healthy, stop by MK during lunch time! The volunteer-run food collective starts serving their daily dose of awesome vegan food Mon-Fri at 12:30pm sharp. Food is by donation. Don’t forget to bring your own tupperware!
Tips: Be kind to the servers (especially the one serving vegan brownies…trust me)!

Samosatopia – ubiquitous on campus
The samosa is greatly glorified on the McGill campus. It seems that samosa sales can be found out and about at any given time, much to the delight of starving students. Normally, a dollar will get you one of these bad boys, so it’d be kind of a feat to spend more than $5 on them.
Tips: Follow Samosatopia on Twitter for the latest samosa happenings on campus. If you don’t have a Twitter account, make one! Your samosa cravings will thank you.
