Month-end blues can hit one hard if the expenses are not planned beforehand. For those of you who like to YOLO at the beginning of the month {guilty}, keep this list handy if you’re working out of BKC – the corporate hub. We won’t like you to survive on vada pavs after all.

With an estimated spend of INR 400 for two people, you can easily wrap up lunch with a ghee paper masala dosa at INR 150. You can accompany this with rasam for INR 50 if you’re planning on passing on ice cream.

We have declared Deluxe as your go to place for mutton biryani in the past and we still stick by it. At just INR 90, it can help you overcome your afternoon cash crunch without keeping you hungry. It’s better to stick to their Indian dishes as they’ll be comparatively cheaper than the Chinese section. You don’t want to be paying for soya sauce now, do you?

What we like about Punjab mail is that they don’t bombard you with a hundred options, specially when you’re low on cash. They have paranthas starting INR 80, rajma chawal and kadhi chawal will happily be digested at INR 80 too. Opt for their lassi if want to take a long nap at work at INR 40.

A delivery-only setup, they are revered for their biryanis {starting INR 155}, chicken cutlet {INR 145}, allu parantha {INR 25} and in-house raita. They’re known to use less oil and spices are used in moderation too.

Located in the same building as the family court in BKC, Ramdas hotel used to be {still is} the canteen of the premise. From dosas starting at INR 40, Hyderabadi biryani at INR 120 and dal khichdi at INR 90, this otherwise morose place is ideal for people trying to light up their world with savings.

If you’re not kind to compromise on your nachos and hot dogs even at the end of the month, head to Bombay Food Truck. With the highest price being INR 200 for hot dogs, nachos will cost you INR 150. They deliver only in One BKC so if you’re working elsewhere, please visit them.
