Good food shouldn't cost an arm and a leg - that's our motto and we're sticking to it. So, each week, we go out onto the streets of Dublin and find you guys the best food on a budget we can find. 

So you can spend your money on more important things - like pints, or dogs. 

Happy eating, friends.

5. Soup, Credo - €3.75

While some soups in the city tend to be watered down and wholly dissatisfying, Credo go all out in terms of good density, great flavours and delivering the perfect amount of fullness. These guys do a soup special every day, made with the freshest of Italian ingredients, served with a side of bread. 

Their Italian tomato soup is other level, trust us.
