Before the holiday break, the guys and I went to Yahoo for lunch. Upon arriving in the parking lot, the guard greets you and directs you where to park. The last time, the guys parked in someone’s reserved spot (oopsie), this time we parked in visitor parking (being good corporate citizens). Lunch was at the URL cafe, we wandered around to see what types of food they had before we decided on what we wanted to eat. They had a variety of cuisines, along with a make your own salad or sandwich station, prepared salads and sandwiches if you want to grab and go before a meeting, dessert station, soft-serve ice cream, assorted teas, juices and sodas. I was super excited to see Bar None Gelato in the freezer along with other ice cream bars.
Before I finished making my rounds, Jason pulled me aside and pointed out Yahoo’s cofounder, David Filo. He said, it’s like a unicorn sighting because he’s hardly ever seen around campus anymore. Of course, I launched a stealthy Periscope video to capture this moment but he was too far away. Then he came back around so I made Mike standstill, I could take a quick creeper pic. Check it out in the video!
FOOD RATING: 3.4 stars out of 5
Jason rated it at a solid 3 stars with the highlight of his meal being the chorizo. Mike and Dave were also fans of the chorizo sausage, they said it was very tasty.
Mike rated it a 4, he really liked the giant onion rings and I have to agree with him. He said the chicken was really good then passed on the cookies and dessert.
Dave rated it a 3, he thought the samosas were good.
I rated it a 3.5, I liked the brussels sprouts dish, which was flavorful and didn’t have the bitter aftertaste that you might get from not cooking the brussels sprouts properly. nion rings. I enjoyed the oatmeal cookies too much and took some home.
Overall, the food was good, Mike said, “nothing tastes as good as free food!”
LUNCH COST: Free
We wrapped lunch with a quick stop inside the Yahoo store so Dave could buy his Secret Santa Christmas gift.
