Christine, could you tell some of the different food station offered in Alliot? I'm a bit of a picky eater. Thank you and your blog is awesome :)

Always love to hear the blog has supporters! Now about Alliot (one of my favorite places on campus for a variety of reasons)

For breakfast you can get cereal, made to order eggs, a bagel, toast, muffin, fruit, all that good stuff.

For lunch we've got a salad station with a different salad every day, and that's also at dinner too. There is a deli station that has every type of deli meat and cheese plus lettuce, tomato, chips, pasta salad, etc. At lunch there is also a wrap station serving a different wrap every day. Next we have two entres, one of which is always vegetarian. The grill serves grilled cheese, burgers, and fries every day, and also has a special every day like a bacon burger or a philly cheese steak. The pizza station also has plain and pepperoni pizza every day and some kind of special pizza as well (pizza bagels and calzones are most popular, and they also have French onion soup and gravy fries sometimes). Last but not least we have the chef's corner, where the meal of the day is made however you want it (which means with or without sauce, veggies, etc).

At dinner time, the deli station changes to a vegan entre, and the wrap station becomes a pasta station, which normally has 2 or 3 different sauces and sometimes extras like chicken or eggplant parm.

For both lunch and dinner you can also always get cereal, one of two daily soups, another selection of salad bar items, and of course peanut butter and jelly. There's also a whole table of desserts every day, as well as fruits.

The best meal at Alliot, however, is definitely brunch on Saturday and Sunday mornings/afternoons. We have a waffle maker, home fries, sausage/bacon, and pancakes/french toast.

Alliot will also frequently have guest chefs come in and make a special dish or dessert (bananas foster is my favorite) or have theme nights like western theme or italy theme, to name a few.

Long story short, even the pickiest of eaters (my friend Matt only eats things that are white colored or super plain for the most part) can find something every day. Sometimes it takes a little creativity, but I'm pretty confident that you'll be able to find a good bunch of things you really enjoy and do fine in Alliot.

Hope this helps :]

What do you want to know about SMC?
