Corned Beef + Fried + Garlic Rice
in the cafeteria
This week, GMTD provides a daily look at the lunch offerings in our cafeteria – today, breakfast.
- Day 1 (10.149 Beef Stew + Chicken Pandan + Chop Suey + Steamed Rice)
- Day 2 (10.150 Grilled Pink Salmon + (Veg-Only) Mongolian)
- Day 3 (10.151 Roast Chicken + Beef Sinigang + Steamed Rice)
The breakfast options tend to be rather bleak, both in terms of taste and nutrition. Even by the cafeteria’s own standards, 2 of 7 offerings are not recommended, 5 are suggested to be eaten less – utterly absurd that fried hotdogs and corned beef hash are labelled yellow, rather than red – and not a single go eat more item.
I have to admit that I’ve come to reembrace corned beef hash – the kind that comes in a can – which we used to eat when I was a kid growing up in California, but did not encounter for thirty years afterwards, until I got to the Philippines.
