Dozens of Otters were gathering at the Dining Commons at California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) to indulge in the street food stations on Sept. 24. The temporary stations were part of a series being hosted by Otter Kitchens to bring flavor and fusion to students’ appetites.
Alex Perez, Otter Kitchens marketing manager, believes in making mealtime an all-around delightful experience.
“The idea is about bringing joy to food,” Perez said. “There are the traditional gluten-free and vegetarian options, as well as four new stations for students to try.”
Each station – “Rooted,” “Flame,” “Mexican,” and “Dessert” – were consistent with various new entrees and choices, complimentative to all palette types.
Rooted was offering students loaded baked potatoes, barbeque cauliflower wings and cornbread. Flame was dishing up cheesy roast beef fries, while the Mexican station had street tacos and Dessert provided freshly-made donuts – complete with sprinkles.
Otter Kitchens will be hosting another food festival towards the end of October.
