Bruin Plate, UCLA's newest dining hall, is among the first health-themed dining halls in the country. UCLA Dining Services is focused more than ever on locally-sourced produce and meats from nearby farms, sustainable seafood, unprocessed and preservative-free items, organic foods, cage-free eggs, nutrient-packed ingredients, and expanded vegetarian and vegan options.
Dishes at Bruin Plate include an array of familiar and exotic foods like kale, farro, amaranth, lentils, acai berries, and more. Entrées, such as root vegetable tagine, sweet potato burger, and chicken with dates and polenta, are designed to let the high-quality ingredients really shine.Read More About Bruin Plate's Concept
