OMGUW's the Best of UW (and beyond!)

MODs: Hey. We're starting a new project on OMGUW! The Best of will document the best (or worst) that UW (and beyond) has to offer (Same thing blogTO is doing for Toronto). How it works: we will post a category and have you suggest the best of that category that Waterloo has to offer. We will then take all the suggestions and have you vote on them. The top 5 of the category will be posted in a new section of the site for future reference. For the first week, we would like to know: the best place on campus to get food.

Suggestions will be open till Monday. Voting starts on Tuesday.

- Luv, MODs.

  1. Mostly overpriced unfortunately but I wish Festival Fare in SCH was more well known, it's pretty good compared to the rest of campus. Otherwise Tim Horton's and Fed Express are pretty good value on campus, especially if you completely overfill your bowl with mac & cheese from Fed Express.

    Can't beat cooking your own meals though.

    1. I second ML, their food actually tastes healthy and is a reasonable price; they also have friendly service

    2. ML is good, except they have extremely slow service.

    4. I typically agree, but last time I was there I ordered a western omelet and IT HAD NO FUCKING HAM ON IT

    5. ML! except they are SO SLOW and don't wear gloves which is fucking disgusting

    6. 2e: I don't get where this idea came from. Wearing gloves is actually less hygienic for food prep than washing your hands regularly...

    1. I would have replaced Tim Horton's with a McDonald's if you elected me instead of Carly.

  10. I really like the pasta bar in SLC. No idea why, guess it's convenient and I tend to eat a lot of pasta. But obviously, just being a pasta bar, it is not all that varied.

  14. Liquid Assets Café, in the School of Accounting and Finance addition to Hagey Hall, serves a great selection of excellent soups (e.g. Wicked Thai, lobster bisque, green curry chicken, spicy crab corn chowder, etc), sushi, wraps, sandwiches, pizza slices and samosas. The staff are friendly and service is pretty quick unless you hit the absolute peak of the lunch period.

  15. International news in slc for those cold pastas (e.g. pad thai). a bonus if you volunteer for a feds service and get 10% off.

    cnd for chilli or mac and cheese

    3. @17a Volunteer for a service, it's not that difficult... and maybe it'll make you less of a misanthrope

  20. How about desserts? I always crave those cheesecake cups you can get in SLC or DP (chocolate cheesecake with chocolate chips).
