spectrasouthside.com | Recommended Berkeley Eats On A Budget
We all like food. We all like having more money. We all like not spending too much money on really good food. Thankfully in Berkeley that is not difficult to accomplish. There is a vast array of options when it comes to dining out right by the UC Berkeley Campus. Some are better than others and while personal preference factors into this there are definitely options that are less expensive and still provide amazing meals. Below are some of our favorite Berkeley eateries for when you want to treat yourself to a tasty meal but do not want to feel bad when you check your bank account balance later that night. 
 
- Mezzo: The servings at Mezzo are ridiculous in the best way possible! Very fresh food in extremely large portions with reasonable prices? There is almost no way you can go wrong. If you get a salad we strongly recommend their poppy seed dressing. We would say this is one of our top picks. 
 
- Flying Falafel: The Flying Falafel is on Shattuck Avenue. So while it is not as close to Spectra Southside as the other choices on this list it is still in walking distance. They have some of the tastiest Mediterranean food in Berkeley. Their homemade hummus and flavorful crisp falafel are some of our favorite items on their menu. As they say on their website "prepare to get falafelized"! 
 
- Ladle & Leaf: Ladle & Leaf is a convenient option for numerous different kinds of soups, salads, and sandwiches. With all kinds of options inspired by dishes around the globe this is a great place to go if you are looking for variety!
 
- Bongo Burger: This is our favorite nearby burger place. Great prices and exceptional food with extremely tasty vegetarian options as well. Breakfast options in the morning, burgers, kabobs, falafel, and baklava oh my! Can you tell we like Mediterranean food? 
 
If you check out any of these places we hope you enjoy what you find and let us know what some of your favorite eateries are that are close by to Spectra Southside.
