Queens College adds The Curry Kitchen to campus dining options

New concepts alleviate long longs and offer new kosher options.

Oct. 24—Queens College, Flushing, NY October 22, 2013 (Knight News, provided by UWIRE, a division of Uloop via Comtex) --On Sept. 9, students were able to access new selections of food on the Midway Court side of the cafeteria.

On the kosher side of the cafe, next to the Dairy Stop provides a new station called The Curry Kitchen, which sells Indian food and halal meat. Another new selection, The Wicked Spoon/ Starbucks, holds one self-serve frozen yogurt machine and a topping bar with several kosher options and a third Starbucks station on campus. On opening day, samples were provided. No other changes have been planned thus far.

Previously, where The Curry Kitchen now stands, was a place where students could purchase Chinese food and sushi, generally after waiting on a long line. Prior to the Wicked Spoon was Mexican food; a convenience store aimed at students from the Summit, and in 2009 a kosher deli. Both were not bringing enough business to sustain it.
