Whether you're looking to grab food on the go before scurrying off to a final or just bored of eating the same HUDS salad every day, the food trucks in and around campus provide delectable dining options at a low cost. This week, Flyby scouted out a few different food trucks to learn more about the many delicious and convenient lunch possibilities they offer.
Grilled Cheese Nation
Harvard students love classy cheeses. This bodes well for classy grilled cheese sandwiches. In addition to traditional melts, Grilled Cheese Nation offers new varieties like The Blue Man Goo made of blue cheese and fig spread on raisin pecan bread, and the Brie Me Up made of brie and sliced Asian pear on wheat bread. They also have shots of hot tomato soup or cold gazpacho. 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m., Tuesday and weekends, outside the Science Center.
Craving the taste of New England to complement the New England spring weather? Lobsta Love offers the trifecta of lobster rolls, lobster bisque, and lobster mac and cheese to remind you that you do actually go to school near an ocean. 11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Sundays, 11:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Saturdays, and every other Tuesday (including May 8), outside the Science Center.
Bask in the sunshine and brand-new outdoor seating near the Science Center while eating at Plaza Tacos. This HUDS initiative has four delicious menu items which can be purchased using Board Plus. Offering pollo asado as well as beef and vegetarian tacos, this student-staffed food truck is the perfect place to lay back and listen to music while munching on lunch. 11 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday - Friday.
Savory Food Truck
Located on Oxford Street right outside Maxwell Dworkin, the Savory Food Truck serves over 50 Asian-inspired dishes. Customers rave about the Roast Duck and the variety of specials that change daily. A common stop for grad students working in labs nearby, the Savory Food Truck is one of the best-kept secrets on campus. Open 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., Monday - Friday.
