If you get a Mini at Submarine center, you might as well just get the regular size. Even if you are full after eating the mini, it’s so good you’ll want to eat more!
Superstar on Mission St. also has good eats for under 5. Two longanisa sausages + tomato + an egg + a bunch of garlic fried rice for roughly 3 bucks!
