In The Bay, affordable tacos aren’t hard to find. They can be found on almost any block or corner. But This is Thrillist and we aren’t searching for basic affordable tacos. We’re looking for the most mind-blowing, mouth-watering tacos our $5 can buy! Join host Nicole Wilhelm as she takes us to find the most delicious tacos our 500 pennies can buy. We’re going to a local gem that will tingle your taste buds. La Casita in Oakland is serving up authentic Mexican cuisine, featuring some of the best tacos in town and we’ll show you why. That is, after all, why Thrillist is your go-to for all food recommendations. You know the rules: We’ve only got $5, so we need to make every penny count… and we’ve definitely got you covered.
Thrillist is bringing back its popular cheap-eats show, but bigger and better than ever with three new hosts. Every week, we’ll explore all the best places to eat (that actually taste good) for under $5, and not a penny more. This season, we’re taking it beyond just New York City and traveling to Washington, DC and the San Francisco Bay Area to show you where to get the best bang for your buck. So if you need a break from the expensive, from the chains, or you’re just looking for new places to try in your city, this is the show for you. Welcome to “5 Buck Lunch.”
Nicole Wilhelm was born, raised, and still lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. A food-obsessor and serial entrepreneur, she works alongside her husband as the co-founder of a multi-million dollar real estate business. Whenever she gets a chance, she still loves to play like she’s a tourist and explore the city’s ever-changing hoods. You may find her in Japantown at Ramen Yamadaya slurping up some of the best ramen in the city or eating cornbread out of a cast-iron skillet at the “little restaurant that could,” the Brown Sugar Kitchen.
