Admit it: You miss the hash browns

There are many things that have been removed from my daily ritual over the past six weeks. My wake-up time, face-to-face meetings, and the absence of glass doors on my bathrooms are among the most revolutionary. However, one detail is—at least to me—irreparably missed.

How many of you started your mornings at SAS enjoying a few crispy and warm hash browns? Well it’s time to address the elephant in the room cafeteria. Now that I’m at a safe distance from the warring purveyors of these crispy-fried potatoes, it’s time that we set the record straight: Who served the best hash browns on the SAS campus?

In this quirky start to your weekly dose of The Eye, we offer a throwback to times when the bulk of your caloric intake happened on the SAS campus, when students in SAS Journalism‘s witness protection program were still on campus, and when these little details were the biggest decisions we had to make in our day. In a blind taste-test, students judge both Mr. Hoe’s and Subway’s offerings of these delectable breakfast treats based on texture, flavor, and price. Finally, the truth is out there: who served the best hash browns?

Well there you have it: SAS students tended to prefer the overall taste of the subway hash-brown and raved about its saltier and stronger flavor (while noting that those little discs do get soggy faster—so eat fast!)
