Washington University dining services offer smaller portions

New menu items include banana oat pancakes and huevos rancheros.

Sept. 9—The 2013 academic year kicked off with several changes to Dining Services at Washington University, from the South 40 to the Village to the Danforth Campus.

Some of the changes were motivated by nutritional reasons, through collaboration between Dining Services and Connie Diekman, director of University nutrition, while others were logistical or just an attempt to keep things fresh.

In Bear’s Den, the changes include a new section at the Mongolian Grill offering street foods from different Asian countries, an updated kosher station and a new method of preparation at the pasta station called “live action.”
