Whether you have just an hour to spare to grab a bite to eat inbetween lectures, or are wanting to enjoy a lengthy lunch break, take a three-minute walk to Orindi’s Deli and choose from a selection of freshly prepared hot and cold food.
Students of Penrhyn Road will all probably agree that the canteen’s options sometimes just do not tickle our taste buds. It’s particularly when you don’t have enough time to wander into Kingston’s town centre that you end up settling for the same sandwich or salad that you chose the day before, and the day before that.
The family-run cafe sat myself and a fellow student down immediately to a comfortable seating arrangement looking out of the window where we waited no more than 10 minutes for our halloumi and jalapeño wrap, £2.95, and bacon and avocado toastie, £2.95.
The halloumi wrap was grilled to a perfect crisp and the halloumi was generously inserted evenly in both wraps. It was accompanied by finely cut lettuce and a fair number of jalapeños that added just the right amount of kick.
The bacon and avocado toastie was served in brown bread, although you could choose to have white bread. The bacon tasted fresh and was done to perfection – lots of crisp. The avocado was the bacon’s perfect partner.
With a range of drinks to choose from, we went for lemon-flavoured Sanpellegrinos.
In total these two handmade sandwiches and the drinks would set you back £7.02 with your student discount card.
Orindi’s also offer a meal deal option where you can choose from any wrap, panini, or sandwich with two fillings of your choice, a drink (can or bottle of water) and crisps or fruit for just £3.95.
You can also purchase a range of hot food including pasta, omelettes, jacket potatoes and burgers, all which are reasonably priced.
For really good nosh that won’t cost you a lot of dosh, pop around the corner to Orindi’s Deli Cafe and enjoy homemade food, inbetween, before or after lectures.
