Spoiling yourself on a student budget does not have to leave you broke. If you are in or around Hatfield, why not grab a chicken burger for only R25 at Springbok’s Bar? For an extra R3, you could include some chips on the side. If you do not feel like a burger, you can always munch on a cheese pizza for R32. Of course, you already know about Steers’ Wacky Wednesday, where for R54, you can buy a juicy beef burger, and get one free. If you have dietary needs or preferences, give Lexi’s Vegan Eatery in Hazelwood a try. On Mondays, you get a second plate of the meal you ordered, for free! Bring a friend along or take it home for dinner. Lexi’s is also now on Mr Delivery, so you can still get your healthy meal even if you do not feel like leaving the house. Another healthy alternative is Hatfield’s Kauai. If you show your student card to the person taking your order, you get 20% off your order, any day of the week. Last but not least, (because breakfast cannot be forgotten), get a Feast Filler Breakfast at Wimpy, for R49,90, or The Crisp Supreme Chicken & Bacon burger and chips for R59, 90. Some people even say that a Wimpy breakfast is the cure for a hangover, so why not give it a try. Eating good food does not need to break the bank, so do not forget to treat yourself once in a while.
