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 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.
