Students craft their own sushi
Going out for a sushi dinner on a Friday night may be an option, but some Drexel students chose to learn how to make their own Japanese signature dishes. The Honors Student Advisory Committee and the Japanese Undergraduate Student Association hosted Sushi and Onigiri Night Oct. 11 in the James E. Marks Intercultural Center.

Global flavors arrive on campus
Market 16 brings global flavors to campus but is strongly concentrated around an Asian theme. It has a made-to-order noodle and sushi bar with a wide variety of meat and vegetarian options catering to the needs of Drexel’s diverse student population. Additionally, it provides quick and healthy grab-and-go food items for busy students and faculty alike. Market 16 has indoor and outdoor seating, providing its customers with an option to relax and enjoy a sushi roll or a hot cup of noodles.

Mizu Sushi is inexpensive, but Unagi Don lacks spice, texture
As I was making my way to Fresh Grocer (some food critics, myself included, possess the ability not only to assess a culinary masterpiece but also to prepare one), I came across Mizu Sushi Bar. Though inconspicuous when compared to its more flamboyant neighbor, Distrito, I recalled the name from an old friend’s recommendation and decided to investigate.

Tampopo keeps bento boxes and noodle bowls college-affordable
For this week’s restaurant review I chose Tampopo, a phenomenal hidden gem suggested to me by another member of The Triangle staff. Tampopo is located on 21st Street between Chestnut and Sansom streets. This small Japanese sit-down is very student-friendly in terms of prices. Anyone can walk in and get a fulfilling meal with a drink for no more than $10. This restaurant has been Zagat-rated the past six consecutive years. More people have walked by Tampopo and thought it was just another run-of-the-mill Japanese restaurant, but it’s so much more than that. This restaurant does not have the same qualifications as others serving sushi; it’s strictly a noodle-bowl and bento-box eatery. Tampopo delivers speedy service from start to finish whether you are eating in or taking out.
