We do our very best to flag all items that contain pork, however, there may be some instances were a marking was missed. It is recommended that if you are dining outside of the halal station, to review the ingredient listings, ask our Chef(s) or our onsite dietitian for any item that may contain pork to reduce accidently exposure. Additionally, there are a few recipes that contain rice vinegar and mono-diglycerides however, those will be listed in the ingredients online.

 

Bowl Station

At Georgetown, our culinary team and dietitians have worked together to design menu items that fit the dietary needs of many students. We have specifically geared the Bowl Station to serve menu items that are prepared using minimal oil, reduced amounts of garlic and onion, and provide more items that do not contain gluten or dairy. Based on student feedback, these types of adjustments will help cater to many students who prefer meals that are simply prepared with a preference of made without gluten and dairy, lower in sodium, and seasoned naturally with herbs. This station features consistent menu items that rotate weekly. Students may find bowl creations that come with: Rice, Quinoa, Cous Cous*, Rotisserie Chicken, Grilled Steak, Steamed Carrots, Oven Baked Mixed Vegetables, Green Beans, Garden/salad mix, paired with different sauces.

It is important to note that while this station does not use garlic or onion in the recipes, and uses mostly items that do not contain gluten or dairy, there is possibility for cross contact to occur in the cooking process due to shared kitchen space.

This very popular station tops the charts in terms of flavor profile!
