[Coffee Cart] "MORE COBB SALAD FROM SUSINA'S PLEASE!!!! They are easily the best product from Susina's (in my opinion)."
Though we have only had Susina for a relatively short while, their menu continues to evolve, offering numerous selections - which now also includes sandwiches. With so many choices, we want to be sure to rotate through the entire menu to offer the widest variety possible. The current lineup will ran through Tuesday 11/26. You can expect that the Cobb Salad will return the week of 12/1.
"Seeing as pizza is one of the main course options at the cooler, it seems only reasonable that there is at least one vegan pizza available of the six that are usually out. It would also be nice if simple vegan options like beans and rice were made available for those vegans who do not always want a veggie burger, sushi, or pb and j. Also, the dark chocolate almond oskri bars have been missing in action for a long time!! Can we get those back? Chocolate coconut milk would be a lovely addition."
The only time we would have the maximum 6 pizzas on the line at once is during peak business. Even during these times, vegan pizza does not sell quickly enough to avoid waste. Vegan pizza is always an option by request as whole pizzas, pizza bagels, wheat pita or gluten free. Rice is offered Monday through Thursday evenings as an alternative to bread. We do not have the proper cooking/holding equipment at this time to also offer beans. The Oskri bars come from two natural foods suppliers, but they are often out-of-stock from those suppliers. When in-stock, we carry several varieties which cannot all be stocked at once because of lack of storage space. We currently have the dark chocolate w/o almondson display. We would not be able to offer CHOCOLATE coconut milk in the preparation of other beverages at the Cooler, but - due to recent student requests - we do have REGULAR coconut milk expected to arrive soon which will be offered as another milk choice at the counter.
"The vegetable beef soup in the MP today [11/20] was delicious!! Hats off to the chefs!"
Thank you! We've passed along your compliments!
"Shrimp taco Wednesday please and thank you."
Shrimp tacos will return to Chef's Corner at lunch on Wednesday 12/4.
"The soy milk and almond milk is always almost completely frozen and lumpy in the silver case. This doesn't look very appealing when poured on cereall, and the taste becomes strange as well. Is there anything that can be done about this to keep it like normal milk?"
This is a constant battle we've been having with an old piece of equipment that does not keep temperature very well. When the door gets left open the refrigerator over-compensates and freezes the product. The good news is we have ordered a new dispenser system, which we will stock with original soy milk and almond milk. Other varieties of soy milk will be stocked in aseptic packs with the bottled beverages.
"The quesadilla bar at the pasta station was SO GOOD! Please, please, please do it again soon."
Look for a modified version of the Quesadilla Bar at Homestyle before the end of the semester. The full Quesadilla Bar will return as a special in January or February.
