Food Roundup: Deal Edition

category icon Posted in General

As Iowa City residents we have SUCH an amalgamation of different types of foods at our fingertips. This past summer, my friends and I set a goal that we would try a new restaurant or cafe each week and boy did we come through. Each week we sampled little tastes of Iowa City: Chinese food, Italian, diner-esque, indian… the options were seemingly endless. I’ve compiled a list of restaurants that have deals on certain days for when you are tired of Burge food or have only ramen noodles and a jug of semi-expired milk in the fridge (no judgement… we’ve all been there!). So, enjoy! Listed below are some of my favorite deals.
