Check out our 4 new restaurants in the MLK Jr. Building!


La Cocina was born out of a belief that a community of natural entrepreneurs, given the right resources, can create self-sufficient businesses that benefit themselves, their families, their community, and the whole city. The food that comes out of this kitchen reflects that aspiration and, quite simply, tastes amazing. La Cocina and the ASUC Student Union present to you: A Girl Named Pinky: an Oakland native who makes from-scratch cakes, cupcakes and cookies, El Mesón de Violeta: a mix of Chilean empanadas, history and activism, Noodle Girl: Vietnamese influenced soups and noodle bowls, Old Damascus Fare: authentic Syrian food, and Pinky and Red’s: a mother-daughter duo serving “soul food on a sandwich;”. The entire lineup of featured businesses are women and POC-owned.

Be on the lookout for our Fiat Lunch contest featuring each restaurant weekly on Instagram. Enter to win coupons or free food! @asucstudentunion
