"The marketplace served an awesome pizza last year during founders' day (the one with bacon, blue cheese, feta, etc.) and i was wondering if you guys have thought about bringing it back?"
Yes! You will see that pizza again in April, most likely at the Founders Day brunch on Saturday 4/20. We might also serve it as a special sometime prior to that.
"You know what would be cool? A food truck that drives around campus at night (dorms, study places, etc.), like an ice cream truck, but serving healthy food, snacks, or meals while we study. The Coffee Cart or Cooler is pretty far for some dorms, and the selection is understandably limited. So a Tiger Truck would be awesome! I know this is pretty far fetched, but it's just a thought!"
Cool, yes. Far fetched, somewhat. There are actually a few food truck ideas floating around Oxy, and we're aware of quite a few other schools that own trucks. We wouldn't say it's entirely out of the question, but would require significant capital outlay, not to mention additional labor. It's good to dream!
"The Indian Meatless Monday is always a favorite (obviously, by the size of the lines!), but the little balls (with carrots in them, maybe?), and the dessert, were especially delicious this week! Thanks, and please bring them back soon!"
The dishes you liked were Malai Kofta and Besan - we'll keep them in the rotation!
"There should be more drop stations for the eco-clamshell program. I take my clamshell with me to work twice a week at night but by the time I get out, the marketplace is closed and I have to carry my clamshell around for the next day."
The Eco-Takeout program is administered exclusively through the Marketplace facility, because the other facilites do not have the space to properly accommodate the logistics for the containers. We understand that it would be more convenient to have alternative drop locations, but the containers ultimately have to be washed at the Marketplace and someone has to issue tokens in exchange for those containers. Therefore, at this time, containers must be brought to the Marketplace during business hours (through 7:30pm). Though it may not always be completely convenient, we applaud your efforts in making regular use of your eco-clamshell.
"The seasoning on the potatoes at Homestyle on Tuesday night 3/19 was delicious! I would love to see it back again sometime!
