Modest it might be, but the food at Edna’s Kitchen, a kiosk in Castle Park, certainly packs a punch. All the dishes on offer are vegetarian – choose from mezze salad boxes packed with crunchy salads, falafel, tabouleh and freshly made hummus, a herby Israeli omelette, aubergine and egg salad, or if you’re lucky, Edna’s special shakshuka (eggs baked in a spicy tomato sauce). Most dishes cost around £4, while the mezze box is full to the brim and still comes in at under a fiver – perfect for a quick shopping pit stop.
With Michelin stars increasingly common in these West Country parts, it’d be easy to rack up quite the bill at many of Bristol’s very best restaurants. Thankfully for those on a budget, you can spend a fraction of what you would at those high-end spots and still get your mitts on some really good grub. From tantalising tapas to perfect pies to killer curries, there’s all manner of brilliant cheap eats to be found in this gourmet city. Need some inspiration? These are the best budget-friendly restaurants and cafés Bristol has to offer right now.
