Roast Chicken + Beef Sinigang + Steamed Rice
in the cafeteria
This week, GMTD provides a daily look at the lunch offerings in our cafeteria.
- Day 1 (10.149 Beef Stew + Chicken Pandan + Chop Suey + Steamed Rice)
- Day 2 (10.150 Grilled Pink Salmon + (Veg-Only) Mongolian)
My favorite single item in the cafeteria, whether as part of a whole meal or just as a snack, is roast chicken. On days when it’s available, cafeteria staff know that I can’t resist: “How many pieces of roast chicken, Dr Hahm?” For the time that I’ve seen in over 5 years, they added minced deep-fried spinach as a kind of garnish, which added no value to the dish.
I also like the sinigang in the cafeteria, especially when it’s with beef, which makes for a cleaner flavor profile (e.g., compared to pork). And if I don’t feel like having all the meat and vegetables, they will give just broth, for free.
