Campus adds new dining options

There has always been a variety of dining choices at Sacramento State. But this semester students will find an added ingredient for their lunchtime leisure. The River Front Center has partnered with the famous Fat family of Sacramento to bring another Kung Fu Fat’s to the northeast side of campus. The “Asian Marketplace” features entrées from barbecue to sushi and also offers Java City coffee drinks.

Fat’s isn’t the only addition. Next to the Asian offerings, students can order some of their favorite American-style food as well. The Hula Dog hot dog stand has moved indoors and now offers an expanded menu for patrons. Tri-tip sandwiches, nachos and gourmet sausages are all on the lunchtime line-up, and doughnuts, bagels and muffins are offered fresh in the morning.

The Outpost café next to the library quad will soon be featuring a new addition as well. Saigon Bay will offer Vietnamese cuisine and feature Asian-French sandwiches and a healthy selection of Asian-style beverages. The outlet is expected to open its doors sometime late fall or early spring.

The University is also planning to bring more coffee to the grounds. The breezeway of the Library will be the location of a new Java City. Students, faculty and staff will be able to more conveniently quench their caffeine craving at the company’s fifth location on campus.

In the spirit of change, some existing venues are adding some new flavor to their features. Along with their large menu of specialty sandwiches, Togo’s in the Riverfront Center is now offering ready-made salads and sandwiches for those on-the-go and also accepts phone and fax orders for quick pick-up service.

Across campus, the University Union will soon be making some changes as well. More than 150 new outdoor seats will be added to its east side. The additional seating will be part of the new outdoor dining area that is expected to be completed by late fall or early spring. The area will be connected to the existing dining section in the Union and located adjacent to Serna Plaza near Parking Structure II. After completion, the area will add approximately 5,000 square-feet of extra dining space to the Union. The Union food court currently seats a total of 356 patrons. The addition will increase the overall seating capacity to more than 500.
