Harvard University features world cuisine in annual festive brunch

Featured items included fried green beans, currywurst, gelato and more.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—Students could choose among a more exotic set of offerings than the usual brunch fare of Veritaffles and omelettes Sunday afternoon at Harvard University Dining Services' annual festive brunch, which was themed “World Street Food.”

Street food items included fried green beans from China, currywurst from Germany, and taquitos de puerco from Spain. For dessert, students could try out gelato flavors such as espresso, mango sorbet, and Tahitian vanilla. Dining halls were decked in multicolored tablecloths and flags representing the origins of the food featured in the menu.

“Every year for the past several [years], we have put forward several theme menu ideas and we invite students to vote on them,” said Crista Martin, HUDS director for marketing and communications.
