According to a recent food preference survey conducted at Tulane University, the students crave Asian and Latin American more so than any other type of food.
Wanting to satisfy its students’ cravings, Tulane will add both to its Food Court at the Lavin-Bernick Center during a renovation this summer.
Jason Fibble, the director of retail dining at Tulane, said the extensive market research helped meet the needs of the student body by providing cultural cuisine.
The new restaurants that will be added to the food court include Star Ginger, Al Fuego, Freshens Fresh Food Studio and Panera Bread.
Star Ginger is an Asian Fusion idea developed by Mai Pham, an award-winning chef. Al Fuego is a Latin American diner that has been developed specifically for Tulane. Freshens offers rice bowls, crepes, salads and smoothies, and Panera Bread was requested by the dining services advisory board.
