The mini-DC served made to order pasta cooked by a chef. There was a mini-salad bar, fruit bar, build your own sandwich bar, soda fountains, and an ice cream refrigerator for ice cream treats. This DC was open to all students and for a time it was quite a popular place as you could pack up a hot pasta meal in a styrofoam container and fill the rest up with food to go.

I found the rumors that it was better to be true, but largely because it was less crowded. This resulted in two things - more of the good food available, and a more pleasant dining experience.
