Food courts: the broke student's guide to eating
Food courts have become a staple for me whenever I eat out, due to my status as a broke uni student. It's fast, cheap and if you're in a group of picky friends, provides a wider choice of food for everyone. Useful when someone feels like eating Korean food while another is set on having Indian. Renaissance Food Court offers a wide range of Asian cuisine and all for very reasonable prices.
However as this is a food court, some of the food can be a bit on the bland side. It's not fine-dining or restaurant-quality, after all. There are a few gems here though that keep people coming back for more. Bing boy is one of the more popular choices and with good reason. Cheap and tasty are probably two of my favourite adjectives when describing food.
Hawkers corner is my favorite, Its cheap but more important there is a great variety to choose from, there is everything to satisfy me, whatever my mood. Walk in the door and the incredible aromas let you drift of to those great places you have visited on overseas holidays. I have found The food quality consistantly good. I wish they would build a hawkers corner somewhere near Brighton. It would save me some much travel, I dont work in the city but i drive to West Tce just to eat at hawkers corner. The staff are friendly and the food is great, you need to get in early as it can get crowded quite quickly. John from Marino.
