So I just headed back from the cafeteria in my university.I don't know what the cafeterias are like in different places,but mine here have little variety of food.Basically,I have the same dishes every two days.I'm okay with the food up to know since the semester is less than halfway through.And the cafeteria food is much cheaper than the ones in the restaurants since I'm trying to save money now.Yet,at the end of the last semester,I got quite sick with the food in the cafeterias and just wanted to go back home to have my father's home-made dishes ASAP.So what about you?Have you ever get bored with the cafeteria food?

Hi babyanna We did not have any cafeteria when I was at college. During our last year, my group of friends got sanctioned the permission from the Principal. It was to set up the income source of one of our friends who wanted to continue studies after graduation but his family did not have funds and he was expected to join a job somewhere to support the family. For a few days after passing out from the college we did hang around at this cafeteria but the food was quite okay. I do not know much what happened with his business after he left it... But yes, at the college hostel, it was a mess. Like most of other responses, it was almost the same menu every week... but that was quite cheaper and even today, I think it was the cheapest that we could get.

Hi,thesids! Sorry for the late reply.I've been trying to get back as quickly as possible.Still,lazy.Haha,I do admit it's incredibly cheap.The cheapest one I've ever had was 2.8 CNY,with vegs and meat.Wonderful!On average,it costs me 4.8 for each meal.Yet some friends of mine studying in other provinces say they spend less than 3 for each with two dishes of different kinds of meat and one dish of vegs. I wish I could study there. :-P

Hmmm... ok, I know they will not accept your application to study. I have a better one - join there as a teacher. As you are the teacher, you get the better quality food at the same or even lesser prices

i think every student or even employee experienced the same thing. i remember when i was in college, we tried to go out of the university to eat at small cafeteria just outside our school. same cheap price but not the same menu everyday. i also try saving money so we dont eat at fastfood because its more expensive that time specially if you are still studying. good thing that i manage that and successfully graduated. now i didnt have to suffer to eat the same menu of our school cafeteria over and over again =D

Hi,there! Lucky you!At least you still had the small cafeteria with cheap price.All the restaurants near our school charge more.And good to know that you don't need to suffer any more.

Heck yes! Every week at school its like the same scedule of food. Every single Friday I have been at school we have had that school nasty pizza. It was so greasy and stuff. They should just let McDonalds or Chickfila to cater the school. They should have their own little shop in the cafeteria and we can choose whether we want to buy from them or not.

Nah,you wish!It's nearly impossible for the school to let McDonalds or Chickfila to cater.It will cost a lot of money.And if they have those little shops in the cafeteria,who will still be willing to eat the cafeteria food? Nasty pizza?Sounds awful!We don't have any pizza here.So at least it doesn't ruin my love for pizzas.

When you eat the same thing everyday, naturally you feel nauseated. I have one famous restaurant in mind. They have the same food menu everyday--chicken, steak, fries--so boring.

Well not for me! there was this place( canteen/cafeteria of some sort) where i literally eat everyday for 5 years and not get bored with it. I am that kind of eater where if i enjoy the food, even if i eat it everyday i will not get tired with it. But ofcourse i also like to experiment some other restaurants and such but I am usually picky about the,.

my post was cutoff? well I am pick on experimenting on restaurants like for example if the place is crowded looked dingy and such. But I have few exceptions like this one place which is really deserted but is so good.

There are times when day in and day out,you will be seeing the same food everyday. So I go out of school campus and eat at KFC, Mc Donalds, shakeys. Then back to caf after a few days.

Hi,jennbart! Yeah,sounds good.I did the same thing the past several semesters.I'm trying to eat in the cafeterias more often because I want to save up more money.Hope I can stick to it for a longer time.

It depends. Some cafeteria canteen provides food that has fair quality but some is just gross. I seldom eat at cafeteria court, I prefer restaurant better unless I'm rushing to do something then I will have something quick there.

Hi,mermaidivy! Yeah,I usually prefer restaurants as well.But it's just a little too expensive for me compared with cafeteria food.Good to know that you don't have to put up with the same menu for too long. Have a nice day!

It is quite common to get bored with cafeteria food. However, if you have a change and come back after a few years, you will find that you missed it. You'll be surprised why you hated it so much in the first place.

Haha,it's possible.When I come back again,I won't be just savoring the food in the cafeteria,right?It's the memories of my university years.I don't hate it for sure,I just get bored of it sometimes. Thanks for sharing!

Well, its not only cafeteria food but any food if taken on a regular, repetitive dosage can get boring. But if you really want to have a safe, healthy and at a cheaper cost, home-made cooking is the best. You may not get all those commercialized preparations but for me, home-made cooking better that cafeteria food.

Cafeteria food can get boring sometimes. Variety and flavor can often be lacking there and routine of food can get monotonous.
