Cheap Date: Falafel Drive-In

Pin it

Amidst the holiday chaos this past weekend, we managed to escape to one of my favorite old-school hangouts: Falafel Drive-In in San Jose. It’s a permanent food cart that hasn’t changed much since I spent my Friday nights there in the 90s, and the food was even better than I remembered. We ordered spicy falafels and banana milkshakes, and it was truly the perfect cheap date.

It was also an excellent reminder that street food makes a pretty awesome (and thrifty) date. So if you’ve got an appetite and a hot date, check out Serious Eats’ list of street food vendors on Twitter, and find someplace cheap ‘n’ delicious to go.
