The $10 Perth Toastie

You would have to be pretty hangry to ignore the price tag on this sandwich.

A photo of a $10 toasted sandwich – shared on Twitter by Australian sports Journalists Abbey Gelmi today – is the talk of Perth.

The sandwich was on display at an unidentified Perth CBD corner store – two slices of toasted bread – with what appears to be a small ration of tomato and cheese, sitting in a display counter warmer.

We can only imagine how expensive this soggy sandwich would have been, had it included avocado.

“Nah Perth is not expensive,” the Fox Sports reporter – in town covering the Wildcats Grand Final win– tweeted today.

Perth’s Best View: Ellis Brook Valley

On top of the Sixty Foot Falls in the Ellis Brook Valley you will find Perth's best view.

The Tweet has been shared or liked over 100 times, and dozens of people have responded to it. We re-tweeted to TweetPerth account late this afternoon.

With a basic high saturated fat food item like this so expensive, it’s no wonder Gen-Y will ever be afford their own home.

Fellow Twitter users reacted with a mix of disgust and a uniquely Perth acceptance.

“Christ for 10 smackers its better be bloody good #Ridiculous #GettingShafted”

“Mining boom prices?”

Are we used to this?

Perth is also notoriously expensive for coffee and beer. Our friends at WAToday have been pushing for cheaper beer prices for a while.

A cup of medium-large takeaway coffee is usually $3 to $4 in Sydney or Melbourne. While Perth cafes often charge $5 or more for a similar sized flat-white.

In Sydney and Melbourne, a good ham and cheese croissant will coast around $4.50 – $5.
