How to Be a Foodie while Eating Cheap

The best aspect of travelling is of course, the food. Exotic local dishes too good to resist; back home you will know where to eat local favourites for less but in a foreign country you are not so savvy and part of absorbing a new culture is eating popular dishes. Say hoorah, to not cooking pasta each day as your neighbours in Australia, for instance, cook up those tasty kangaroo stakes. Read on for top and tasty, tips!
