Studying media/law at UNSW. Can't decide between being a journalist like Clark Kent, a lawyer like Elle Woods or running an inn like Lorelai Gilmore. Until then...I write.

The fast food version of spaghetti dishes
For those of you who study Law or Commerce at UNSW or those of you who have most of your classes on lower campus, you know how much of a trek it is to walk all the way up the stairs to the Quad Food Court or Matthews Arcarde, or to the popular Stock Exchange Salad Bar.
That's why we have the new Stellini Pasta Bar. It's located at the Gate 2 Entrance on High street, on the ground floor of the UNSW Terraces, the newest on-campus accommodation, right behind the Roundhouse and next to the UNSW Village.
I was so excited when I discovered this new development on campus. In a quaint open air mall area, is the Stellini Pasta Bar (along with a Max Brenner and Yummbar falafel bar). It almost makes you forget you're at uni.
They serve over ten different types of pasta dishes, including gluten free pasta. Most importantly, the dishes are ready in about 5 minutes. It's perfect for a meal on the run. They package your meal in a brown cardboard box and serve your pasta to you hot and fresh.
The average price is about $10 for pasta, they go up to about $13. I ordered the spaghetti carbonara, and was able to eat for two meals, so it's definitely value for money.
And of course, the best way to win over the hearts of uni students is through coffee, and Stellini has it all under control. Serving Campos coffee, and with an expert barista who achieves the perfect temperature and frothiness of milk, you could make Stellini the place for your regular caffeine fix.
One of the drawbacks is the limited seating, there's only a couple of tables so it's not good for a nice relaxed meal. Of course, it's always easy to take your meal and eat it somewhere else.
