The average international student lives on a diet of instant noodles, frozen pizza, eggs on toast and spaghetti bolognese. Other favourites include curry, microwave ready meals, nasi goreng and Maccas. These meals are quick, affordable and easy to make, but shouldn’t your diet include more?
In Adelaide, dining out on a student budget can be healthy AND delicious. With a ton of options for cheap eats, your diet can also be varied and interesting.
Here are our top three favourites from the iconic Rundle Place, located in the heart of Adelaide’s CBD:
