If Thai Cafe has a rival on campus for both speed and value-per-dollar, Forbes Family Cafe in the Huang building of the Engineering Quad is it. It also has the widest range of hours of almost any R&DE eatery on campus (and Coupa).
I really can’t rave enough about how this salad cost $4! As-much-as-you-can-stuff-into-the-bowl for $4! $7.25 for the larger bowls.
It’s a very vegetarian/vegan/gluten-free-friendly establishment. Salad bar almost always has a grain-centered salad, a vegetable protein-centered salad, and another vegetable-filled salad.
There are usually only one or two offerings per day with meat. To those in California who see this as a problem, I would invite you to visit waterfootprint.org, and evaluate your water footprint in consideration of our region’s worsening drought.
Anyway the salad was amazing!
Next time, no almonds, because they have a surprisingly high water footprint as well… le sigh.
