Chinese and East Asian

Toro Noodle Bar, Park Street
Chinese, Sichuan cuisine. I never appreciated the mala (numbing) sensation of Sichuan peppercorns before trying Toro. It’s really easy to order and share. The 麻辣香锅 Flavoursome Pot is my go-to! -Emelyn, Graduate Intern

Greek food from Corfu – Pita Wraps with Souvlaki or Gyros, traditional Greek Salads, and deserts. I would recommend the Taka Grill. You need a big appetite though! – Alex, Student Inclusion Manager
