Vegan and Vegetarian Options at iii Points
by Naomy Lelis
After three days of the most eclectic festival, I can say I was very well fed throughout the three days. When it comes to festivals, I always get scared about the food options because it is not easy being vegetarian in a world where there are a lot of meat eaters, specially in a large scale event like this.
When it came to food, iii Points had a variety of different food stands (and a $65 fee for an entrance to a modern looking restaurant that I still don’t understand why), such as Sankhuay, The Gyro Point, SandUchef, Pubbelly Sushi and a pizza spot that had the largest slices I have ever eaten in my entire life.
Pubbelly Sushi was one of the food stands that was present at the festival. Not only that, it also has a location at the Brickle City Center located 30 minutes away from campus (if you are driving). You can also take the metro there, which will cost you $4 roundtrip to UM.
