The Pavarotti is three Perth guys with a love of lunch and a disdain for Perth prices.  

The highlight of our day involves leaving our soggy leftovers in the fridge, strolling to a local eatery and enjoying some fresh food. But living in Perth, this can seriously hit your hip pocket!  That's why we have taken up this noble pursuit.

Join us as we hunt down the best (and worst) lunches that Perth has to offer in the sub-ten-dollar price range.
