Here is a short guide on how you can really save money in the canteen.

  1. The big salad bowl is a myth, just try to cram as much as you can into the small one.
  2. Danger! Cheese (for pasta) costs extra. Better bring your own cheese.
  3. Let the stacking championships begin, pay per serving not per quantity
  4. To really save money, you can simply take the side dishes and pour one of the salad dressings over them after checkout.
  5. If you bring your own mug, you save on coffee, and it's even cheaper at the MoPs
  6. the brownies are sensationally delicious and cheap
  7. Skip the special offers, they are far too expensive
  8. If you are more people you can make a small buffet of side dishes/food by everyone getting a full plate of a dish.
  9. In addition to the cutlery, there is a selection of spices to spice up your dishes, you will quickly find that this is necessary to add at least some flavor to some dishes
