You Can't Call Yourself A UD Student If You Haven't Eaten At These 7 Places On Main Street

Featuring some of Newark's finest dining.

You Can't Call Yourself A UD Student If You Haven't Eaten At These 7 Places On Main Street

If you are a student at the University of Delaware, back me up when I say that there really is no place like Main Street. From bagel shops, to pizza parlors, to lively bars, and everything in between, Main Street has it all. The amount of options can, at times, be pretty overwhelming, so some guidance and recommendations can always be helpful to those who are unfamiliar with the area. Here are some food spots that you cannot miss if you ever find yourself on Main Street.

1. Klondike Kates

If you are debating on where to go for dinner on a Tuesday night, Klondike Kates is the place to be. Why is that you may be wondering? Tuesdays at Kates means half priced nachos of your choice. I highly recommended the "Trash Can Nachos," which are topped with chicken fingers, french fries, and everything else and beyond that you could possibly think of. And just when you were thinking that it can't get much better than that, add in a 4 dollar margarita and you've got yourself the perfect meal.

2. Newark Deli & Bagels

Newark Deli and Bagels is the hot place to be on a Saturday or Sunday morning. There are lines and lines of college students and locals waiting to get the best bagels in town. If you are looking for the best hangover cure, NDB is where you need to be on weekend mornings. There is nothing that a fresh bagel and some hash browns can't fix.

3. Playa Bowls

Acai bowls are the hot new trend these days. Luckily, Main Street just opened up a very popular place to get these bowls, Playa Bowls. You choose from countless bases including acai, pitaya, chia pudding, banana and more, but whatever type you get, you are sure to leave satisfied.

4. Santa Fe

Craving some good Mexican food? From 2 dollar tacos on Tuesdays, to delicious and affordable happy hour specials, Santa Fe can help you satisfy that craving.

5. Snap Pizza

If there is one thing that is greater than pizza, that one thing is customized pizza, and that is SNAP. Here you get to invent your own pie, choosing from numerous toppings, sauces, and cheeses. Don't be embarrassed if you end up eating the whole thing, it would honestly be weird if you didn't.

6. El Diablo

Although Main Street does have your typical Mexican fast food restaurants (Chipotle and Qdoba), El Diablo is the real deal. From burritos, to bowls, to quesadillas, there are so many options. El Diablo is hands down one of my all time favorite places to eat on Main.

7. Taverna

In need of an Italian dinner? Taverna is calling your name! From pasta, to pizza, to delicious desserts and more, you can never go wrong with anything that you order here. My go-to meal is the "Calamarata," which is pasta with grilled chicken and spinach in a creamy tomato sauce. Yum!

Whether you are a student at the University of Delaware, a Newark local, or just passing through the area, make sure to pay a visit to all seven of these restaurants. Believe me, they are way too good to be missed.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
