    UNSW Food Guide

    This is a general UNSW guide to all things concerning food on campus.

    This guide is largely meant to undercut Omie Jay's original food thread.



    KFC / Subway / Mcdonalds / Oporto's

    Next is locate McDonalds on Barker Street. Turn left on Anzac parade. Walk along that road will bring you to some chinese/japanese/indo restuarants + oporto.

    Explore these two areas.
    Upper Campus

    (Located near library)

    There are numerous places you can eat :

    1) Thai place; Hokkien Noodles, Singaporean Noodles, Rice, Chicken
    A large packet of Hokkien Noodles will set you back $6 here but its pretty good.

    2) Indian place: All things Indian

    3) Kebab place: Everything you expect in an ordinary kebab shop, they sell schnitzel as well, sometimes there are some pretty good deals.

    4) Sushi place: If Sushi tickles your fancy, there is a store completely dedicated to sushi

    5) Random place: There is a store towards the medical end of the the food court that sells muffins, burgers, sandwhiches etc It seems pretty expensive though so i never buy there.

    Middle campus

    This is the Quad Food court

    (Located near the Co-op Bookshop)

    1) Thai place: Absolutely stunning thai food, takes around 3mins to make. Costs $8.50

    2) Burger/Kebab place: Sells Wedges, burgers, kebabs.

    3) Sushi place: All things sushi

    4) Sandwhich place: Wide variety of sandwitches

    Lower Campus

    (Other side of the roundhouse)

    Pretty sub-par food here, They sell some spaghetti and other food, but very disappointing in my opinion.

    (If someone could provide more insight here it would be welcomed)

    NOTE: Campus food is usually more expensive than the fast food restaurant food.

    edit: and u made some typos:
    3) Sushi place: All thins sushi

    4) Sandwhich place: Wide variety of sandwhiches

    Re: UNSW Food Guide

    The sushi at upper campus is better than the ones at lower campus, in my opinion.

    Re: UNSW Food Guide

    usually go home to eat but my picks are:

    - expensive but yummy cafe overlooking university mall and science square

    - vietnamese/pho place that sells amazing pork rolls (but i like the chicken ones)

    - sushi somewhere in matthews arcade/pavillions

    - kebabs in roundhouse

    otherwise good thai alison/belmore rd and even better sushi joint.

    can't beat a run across the road to maccas for a mcflurry during group assignment time though.

    yes it is, try not to get served by the oldish indian woman, she made a big deal (and talked to the manager) about giving me an upsized meal, coz i was 5c down.
    Ever since then my fries are thrown in upside down, "here u go, next", and she loves taking her time, strolling to the burgers, making sure theres some coke spilling down the side of the drink so my hands can get sticky, strolling over to the fries, damn bitch.

    At least it didnt take you 1 year to realise there was a Quad Food court

    Re: UNSW Food Guide

    I just wanted to say the freshly cooked food for order at Southern Wok is alright, although there isn't enough seats for multiple triads.
    It's near CLB, secluded underneath a walkway between the cafe and library.

    However I am yet to investigate storage temperatures of fast food served at UNSW.
    Unsafe ranges are 5 to 60 degrees Celsius, we don't want a food poisoning outbreak.

    Re: UNSW Food Guide

    I'd be interested in finding out the temperatures for fast food as well... Is there a Cold Rock anywhere nearby? I think I read something about it in Blitz but I've no idea how to get there

    Re: UNSW Food Guide

    Cold Rock is up at the Spot. Quickest way to reach the Spot is through the hospital. The area also has some quality places for a nice dinner, like Chao Praya for Thai food and Ambrosia for greasy takeout.

    Here's a map, the Spot is centred around the roundabout. You can actually get straight there from upper campus via Macgill and then the unnamed road through the hospital.

    I miss living there. ):
