At Drexel, lunch trucks seem to dominate the campus. We have a myriad of gourmet trucks near Buckley Field, and the typical “grease trucks” spread out throughout campus. What college student doesn’t like to revert to quick, convenient and cheap food? I can’t deny my love for Cucina Zapata or the fact that I’ve picked […]

For the end of my first year at Drexel, two of my friends and I decided to go out. We wanted to celebrate our triumph of surviving freshman year in addition to saying goodbye before the three of us separated and spent our summer holiday in different states. Therefore, we opted to try a restaurant […]
Stephen Starr never fails to impress. I’ve been a huge fan of his restaurants since coming to Philly, and I become excessively excited and even proud every time I visit one of his places. This is partly because the costs of said visits make them infrequent; his restaurants are not outrageously expensive and unaffordable, but […]
The ever-popular Philadelphia Night Market returned for the third time this year Aug. 15, bringing together over 80 food and drink vendors for a summer extravaganza on South Street. Their largest event yet, Night Market, hosted by The Food Trust, spanned nine blocks from Front Street to 9th Street from 6 to 10 p.m. The […]
If you plan on going to Bistro La Baia, located at 1700 Lombard St., bring cash, and if you’re of age, a bottle of wine. The alcohol is optional, but the payment method is non-negotiable. I had a brief panic attack when I heard the hostess say “cash only” to another set of diners after […]
Total time: varies Prep: however long it takes to cultivate racism Cook: however long it takes to enact racism Yields: 1 serving Ingredients: 1 chicken 3 rotten eggs 1 cup blindingly white sauce (the whiter, the better) 2 cups powdered bigotry (preferred over flour) 1 teaspoon narrow-mindedness 2 doughnuts ⅓ cup hasty apologies Infinite supply […]
Recently, The Triangle featured an article in the Enviroweekly column that discussed the so-called dangers of genetically modified organisms. While the movement against GMOs has gained momentum in recent years with large lawsuits being filed against companies such as Monsanto across a multitude of countries, it is important to address the benefits of GMOs and […]
You would be hard pressed to find someone who hasn’t heard of genetically modified organisms in our food at this point. It’s a topic often touched upon in the mainstream media, and people have various opinions and theories about the issue of GMOs. There are articles that argue that GMO food is essential for a […]
Unless I have a specific recipe or category of food in mind to cook, I’ll just buy a bunch of random things that appeal to me when I go grocery shopping. The produce might just look, smell or feel perfect to eat. The sauces might just sound interesting to taste. Sometimes I’m guilty of judging […]
Parc Restaurant, Bistro & Cafe is one of Rittenhouse Square’s greatest assets. Parc’s prime location at the corner of 18th and Locust streets is an attribute to its success; customers are able to enjoy a fabulous view of Rittenhouse Square while eating their meals. This Stephen Starr restaurant is fashioned after a brasserie in Paris. […]
Last term I tabled with the Sierra Club in the Handschumacher Dining Center and rec center to encourage students to participate in Meatless Mondays. I’d like to explain why Meatless Mondays are an important step in furthering Drexel’s sustainability and how the argument for sustainable meat is not a valid solution. So why Meatless Mondays? […]
For Mexican food lovers, Tequilas restaurant is the ideal place to dine. Bright, colorful Mexican artwork depicting peasants and a newlywed couple painted as corpses greet you upon entering the Victorian mansion. In Mexico, el Dia de Los Muertos, the Day of the Dead, is celebrated in November to remember and honor the deceased. Much […]

This week, in celebration of the end of term, Janette Danella shows you her favorite bloopers from this term’s episodes. Check back next fall for more burning questions. Got an idea […]
Welcome to the Burning Question, The Triangle’s online video segment where we ask Drexel students a question that is on everyones’ mind. This week, Janette Danella asks students their thoughts on the lunch trucks located between CAT and Main Building. Check back later for more burning questions. Got an idea for a burning […]
One of the absolute worst things one can do to oneself is to go on a diet. Now I fully understand that being healthy is important, but to sacrifice food for that goal is abhorrent. There is a small point of merit in that by starting a diet you may expose yourself to new foods […]
Dear Granny and Eloise, After coming back to Drexel, I realized how badly I’ve been eating over break. All those holiday hams and desserts — who can resist the temptation? What do I do to get back on track and be my (semi) healthy self once more? Sincerely, Jenny Craig My dearie Jenny Craig, […]
Ah, January, a month of bitter chill and a super-packed recreation center. You now what they say, new year, new you! Well, I’ve already met my 10 sit-up quota for the year, and it’s time to get cooking. Everyone always says that breakfast is the most important meal of the day for people maintaining a […]
Chefs and culinary arts students worked together to create exotic dishes and to help bring the theme of Halloween alive Oct. 27 at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University’s “Cuisine from the Collections” cocktail party. Exotic dishes were created in accordance with the museum’s various exhibits. With more than 18 million plant and […]
As a food critic, I pride myself on my experience. What I mean to say is that when I see an interesting restaurant, I inevitably find myself itching to try out its spread so that I can justify my inflated food critic ego. That’s why I’ve been so disappointed in myself every time I’ve […]
Call me Alejandra, because Las Cazuelas has transported me from its location on the border of Northern Liberties and Olde Kensington to Puebla, Mexico, the hometown of chef Alfredo Aguilar. Although the small Mexican restaurant is inconspicuous in appearance, its food is anything but modest. The menu does not offer a considerable variety of choices […]
