3. Provami Pizzeria – Pepperoni Pizza Slice Combo


When you’re eating a slice of pizza from Provami, you know it’s going to be delicious. Ritual’s food “festival” means you can not only enjoy the taste of that pepperoni pizza by the slice (or “telglia” as it says on the menu), but you can enjoy the fact that you only paid $1 for it.

4. Fala Bar – Fala Plate


If pepperoni isn’t your thing because you’re not into meat, you’re in luck because Fala Bar is totally vegan and is also participating in the festival. For $1, you can try the Fala Plate, which consists of four falafel balls, hummus, Israeli salad, tahini, tabouli, quinoa, and white and purple cabbage. So many tastes for so little money!

If it’s tasty thai food you’re seeking, you can try out Ruam Mitr’s Papaya Salad for only $1. One George Washington will get you a delicious salad made of shredded green papaya, long bean, tomato, carrot and crushed peanut in chili lime sauce, all mixed to perfection together for you. All that sweet and spicy goodness will have your taste buds dancing for pleasure (and your wallet jumping for joy).

6. La Creme Cafe – Classic Crepe + Mango Tango Smoothie


It’s hard to choose what looks best on the menu at this European Café. Luckily, you don’t have to choose only one item if you order during this “festival.” You can get both a classic crepe (with butter and honey) and a Mango Tango Smoothie (filled with mango, pineapple, and orange). If that much food for that price doesn’t start your day off right, it’s hard to say what will.
