Just when I thought a falafel sandwich couldn’t get any cheaper, I scoured 8coupons.com for New Year deals and found one for only 88 cents. From now until January 25, you can stop by Snacklicious Cinderella Falafel in the East Village (129 2nd Avenue, Manhattan–map) any time between 2 and 8 pm and get your falafel fix for under a dollar.
All you have to do is text this coupon from the 8coupons site to your phone. Flash the message to the friendly man at the counter when you get there and he’ll hook you up.
To be honest, this is no Mamoun’s. The 88 cent sandwich is smaller and less tasty than what you’d get for $2.50 around the corner. But two crisp falafel patties, lettuce, tomato and tahini in half a pita for 88 cents is certainly nothing to turn your nose up at.
