Back-to-school season’s in full swing, and we know that, as a student, budgeting a weekly allowance can be quite difficult. Between managing miscellaneous and school expenses, it can be tough to blow your budget on impulse buys, say, on snacks or merienda meals when you’re in desperate need of a pick-me-upper—or when you really need a quick nourishment.
Fortunately, there are workarounds to this perpetual (foodie) dilemma. Here are four snacking options that are all pocket-friendly and will fit a 100-peso budget. These days, these finds are truly a gem, and we’re totally here for it.
Instead of being served on skewers and directly on a plate, Shawarma Shack’s juicy kebabs are already wrapped inside a tender bread, so you can eat them on the go. And, you don’t need to pair them with separate rotis or naans (flatbreads) anymore.
The best thing? You can get two wraps for only P99, as they’re offering a buy-1, get-1 promo on these Mediterranean munchies until September 30 at their kiosk in SM City San Jose Del Monte.
A treat for lasagna lovers is Greenwich’s Lasagna Supreme®, which is now only P99 for a solo serving at their branch in SM City Baliwag.
The classic plate’s loaded with flat noodle sheets sandwiched between layers of beef and lots of cheese in the joint’s signature rich red sauce and creamy béchamel sauce.
This straightforward snack goes for only P49 at the pastry shop’s branch in SM City Bacoor until month-end. Although it looks unassuming, the golden bun’s actually made with a delicate balance of spices to complement the juicy sausage.
Speaking of coffee—nothing beats the large cup of joe and classic donuts from Dunkin’.
This is an iconic pairing like no other, a combo so wholesome and energizing to kickstart your mornings or as a mid-day pick-me-upper.
Even better: You can now have this dynamic duo for only P99 until the 30th from their SM Seaside City Cebu store and choose from either a hot cup or an iced iteration
