The options are wide and diverse, here are a few of them:

University’s Bistro for Students

University’s cafeteria is an everyday handy solution. It will be soon modernized, able to host almost 200 hungry students simultaneously.

The food is tasty and prices are the lowest you’ll get in Iasi if you show them your student’s ID. Average price for a complete menu (2 dishes) is 12 lei (~2.5 euros – and there’s no typo here).

You can check their daily offer by calling +40.232.301.720. It is open until 16:00.

Tip: The earlier you go the most dishes you can choose from, since they have dishes of the day.
