Katie’s Kise Food Review

By: Katie Betz, betzka@mnstate.edu

Kise Commons is the source of sustenance for those MSUM students who have a meal plan. Fortunately, or unfortunately, the food is anyone’s guess.

I have had a meal plan for about a semester now and will confess that I have had a mixed experience. Since journalism is all about being the voice of the people, I thought it might be interesting to do a review of Kise food. I don’t presume to be an unbiased reviewer or any kind of food expert. I will be reviewing Kise food on a rating system based on edibility, appearance and my personal opinion.

This past Monday I had brunch at Kise. These are my findings.

Kise Breakfast

   I have to give Kise Eggs a three out of five MSUM Dragons for excellence. Eggs are probably one of the foods I most consistently consume from Kise Commons. On Monday, I found the eggs to be a little stiff and cold, but they didn’t taste bad and weren’t soggy, so that’s a plus. I will take dry eggs over soggy ones any day.

  The Kise Pancake gets a two out of five Dragons. The pancakes were dark brown and were a little bit like eating cardboard. They were also a little thick, which made it hard to chew. The pancakes did soak up the syrup pretty well, but they were too dry for my taste.

   Kise hit a home run with their tuna casserole, in my humble opinion. I have to give it at least a four out of five Dragons. The flavor and texture were both good, and I enjoyed the casserole immensely.

   Kise Kielbosa is among the worst I have ever had. The meat was greasy and soft when I bit into it. As a woman of German descent, I have had my fair share of kielbasa, and this was definitely not the best I’ve had. I am giving the kielbasa two out of five Dragons.

  The Kise Bagel-Egg White Sandwich was an experience. The cinnamon-raisin bagel itself was not bad, but the egg whites were questionable. There was a mound of egg whites on the bagel, they were soggy. I could not finish the bagel. I am giving the sandwich one Dragon out of five for edibility. 

In summary, Kise breakfast could do with a facelift. The food is not all bad, however there is room for improvement.
