Anything they going to offer with food, salad, water, fruit, coffee are all extra. Dont go in or start to order before you see the price list. If you discover where local people eat, you will pay a litte more than one dollar. If you eat this at a tourist area two dollars or more it will cost.
Street food is your best option if youre on a tight budget. Beef is the most common meat, but you can also find chicken, lamb, and fish. Pork is available, but very uncommon. Food is generally heavily spiced and has a strong but delicious flavor. A tip though is to visit a supermarket and stock up your fridge as you are self catering Different supermarkets as well have different pricings but as a rule Sok and Bim are cheap while Tansas is mid range and Migros the more expensive one!
