The Eclectic Cafe returns

Last Friday marked the reopening of the Eclectic Cafe at OCC. For those of you who don’t know, the cafe is a pop-up restaurant located within the student center, open most Fridays for lunch service when school is in session.
The goal of the cafe is twofold. The first is to showcase the depth and talents of our award winning culinary program, by featuring fresh cuisine that is made in several of the culinary labs throughout the week, including hand-cut steaks, fresh made pastas, and made from scratch sauces, to name a few. The second goal is to promote the cafeteria and food service operations within the campus at an amazing price.
For around seven dollars you get a choice of an appetizer, entree, and dessert as well as a drink and fresh baked bread.
I challenge you to find a better deal in Orange County.
Here are a few highlights from last weeks service.

Smoked Trout with Remoulade, pickled cucumber, and Lavosh crackers

Did I mention it’s only seven bucks?

Chimichurri NY steak sandwich with Island slaw and Red Rose potato salad

Baked Polenta with roasted tomatoes, mushrooms, and Feta

Fresh fruit tart with toasted coconut
I highly recommend stopping by this Friday. Service is only from 11:30-1:00 and sells out fast(maybe because $7?) for more info or reservations contact Rosio our amazing secretary (714)432-5876
This weeks menu will feature more NY steaks, Seabass with crab, and some amazing Offal… You won’t want to miss out.
