Bruin Plate Ups Farro Usage to Curb Long Lines

WESTWOOD— UCLA dining representatives discussed various student complaints sent in during the previous quarter on Monday. Although complaints about Covel’s continued existence were expected, many targeted the university’s newest dining hall: Bruin Plate.

Most complaints were directed towards Bruin Plate’s exceedingly long lines–a concern dining officials said they already have a strategy for.

“Simply put, by introducing increased amounts of farro, quinoa, kale, and barley, we hope fewer students will want to eat at Bruin Plate,” said Mike Pjulsio, a UCLA Dining Services official.

“We looked at the ten most popular dishes at Bruin Plate and attempted to decrease their popularity by unsuspectingly introducing these unpopular ingredients,” Pjulsio said.

Although dining representatives were bound to a confidentially agreement regarding the exact dishes that students will see in this upcoming year, leaked photos obtained via iCloud hint at barley “meat”balls, farro “flatbread”, and barley “froyo”.♦
