Delivery to Your Dorm: Columbia University

A sushi platter from Thai Season.

Sure it’s summer, but we know some of you students are still working hard. That’s way we’re rounding up  the best spots near college campuses. First up – Columbia University on New York city’s Upper West Side, and man, you Columbia kids have it good! There are so many hot restaurants that deliver to your neighborhood, that it was hard for us to narrow this list down to just a few spots.

So, this summer semester if you’re too busy working on your thesis to saunter down Amsterdam, or you’re tired of the same old cafeteria food, order up some delicious noms from the following vendors (and we know how college is, so these eats are on the cheap).

  • Sushi Hana 3141 Broadway: Sushi Hana serves up traditional sushi-joint fare: they have appetizers like gyoza, shumai, and edamame; also classic sushi favorites starting at $2.  Special rolls start at $7.95, and there are also entrees like chicken or beef teriyaki and roll combos.
  • Hunan Chen’s Kitchen 1003A Columbus Ave: Sometimes, you need some Chinese food…and for most New Yorkers, “sometimes” probably means “at least once a week.” Hunan Chen’s is a good bet for your craving, with all your Chinese favorites: egg rolls ($1), hot and sour soup ($1.85), fried rice ($3.25), chicken lo mein ($3.85), beef with broccoli ($5) and general tso’s chicken ($9.25). Combination platters are from $5.50-$6.75, and there’s an extensive and cheap lunch menu.
  • 107 West 2787 Broadway: 107 West doesn’t really know what kind of restaurant it’s supposed to be, but that’s okay because American + Asian fusion + Tex-Mex = something for everyone.  Try the southwestern Jambalaya ($13.95) or the grilled breast of chicken and arugula ($8.95).  There’s also bento boxes for $15.50 and rolls starting at $4.50.  Lunch specials start at $7.95.
