BEST OF late night cheap eats
March 6, 2013
When a case of the late-night munchies strikes, look no further than these cheap eats near campus.
The Hummus Place
Satisfy hunger the healthy way with a generous portion of hummus served with your choice of fresh-baked pita bread or gluten-free corn tortillas. The combination of chick peas, olive oil and spices of the hummus Masabacha ($7.95) is especially delicious when paired with a steaming cup of Turkish coffee ($2.50).
This Bohemian bistro emphasizes quality and quantity over frills. Try the Bistro Burger ($8) and split a side of fries ($2.75) because there is more than enough to share.

Tucked away in NoLiTa, this little taste of Cuba is famous for its grilled corn ($4.25) served with chili powder, lime and cheese.

Wolfnights serves gourmet wraps at the speed and price of a fast food joint. It almost seems paradoxical until you sample the Teen Wolf wrap, a fig and pomegranate dough delight filled with falafel ($6.94).

Dos Toros Taqueria

A fresh, piping hot slice of cheese pizza is satisfying, no matter what time of night. Krust sets the bar high for value meals — slices are just $1.
