Cinco de Mayo, Stanford Style

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

Today students entering dining halls across campus were treated to special Cinco de Mayo meals. In the case of Stern Dining, Mariachi Cardenal, a traditional style mariachi band, performed. Menus included hand-rolled tamales and enchiladas. I was fortunate enough to swipe my card at Stern tonight, and let me tell you, dining staff really did an excellent job.

What’s more, this afternoon was also a zOMG good-burger lunch.

My faith in dining halls has been restored.

EDIT: Included the name of the mariachi group, Mariachi Cardenal.

The Best Burger on Campus

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

Cheeseburger in Paradise

Stern Dining is not known for its delectable, alimentary fare. However, every Wednesday at lunch, a magical transformation takes place. If you are prepared to brave long lines and silverware shortages, you, the diner, will encounter the best burger on campus.

Burger builders will doubtless have their differences, but the following selections tend to accrue widespread approval. For the hungry and ambitious (see picture), I would suggest two grass-fed beef burgers, two slices of cheddar cheese, two slices of crisp bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, guacamole, ketchup, and Cholula hot sauce. For the less hungry but still ambitious, use one burger. For the less hungry and ambitious, eliminate the hot sauce, onions, and mushrooms. Swiss cheese, when available, is also highly recommended.
