Fire ‘n’ Spice
Fire ‘n’ Spice is popular with students on campus. They offer rice bowls and noodle bowls, and you can fill (on your own) with vegetables, and sauces. After you fill your bowl, the chefs will cook your bowl with your choice of meat. It is good and unique, but often has a long wait.
There is not a lack of options at the University of Oregon. It is difficult to get sick of the food options, and there is always something new to try. Studying can be hard on an empty stomach. The U of O made it easy for students to have plenty of options while they are hard at work, or looking for a place to relax.
