Hello! I’m Amy Winkler, a freshman concentrating in Computer Science, and I’ll be writing about two of my favorite things, food and Brown, for Hungry as a Bear. In this column, I’ll share all of the food related advice I have for enjoying Brown’s cuisine and getting the most out of your meal plan.
The Blue Room is a delicious eatery in our student center (which is called Faunce). On a Fall or Spring day, you can grab a muffin (in flavors like Peach, French Toast, and Corn) and bask in the sun on the Main Green. Or, you can grab a coffee and sit down at one of the booths to get your work done. After 4 pm and on weekends, you can use a meal credit to get a meal that adds up to $7.30. Otherwise, you can use points, Bear Bucks, or real money.
Looking for something more substantial? The Blue Room has you covered. On some nights they serve burrito bowls, which one of my friends swears are better than Chipotle. Other nights, you can get Indian food made by Kabob and Curry, an Indian restaurant close to campus. Or, you can choose to get a sandwich, which is my favorite option.
I have to say that Blue Room sandwiches are, in my opinion, the best ones you can get on campus. You get to choose everything, from the bread (which can be Ciabatta, French, or a wrap), the meat (turkey, roast beef, etc.) and cheese. Then you can get toppings and spreads. Before coming to Brown, I had no idea what chipotle mayo was, but now I get it all of the time. You can mix and match everything until you find your favorite sandwich. This eatery, right in the heart of campus, is not to be missed.
If you have any questions or comments about eating at Brown or anything else, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to hear from you!
