News Staff - Tue Jul 24, 2018

Edmonton, AB (July 24, 2018) — The University of Alberta Students’ Union is pleased to announce the addition of Filistix to the list of new food vendors coming to the Students’ Union Building for the fall semester.

Popular campus food vendor Filistix will be opening on the Lower Level of SUB in what is currently the Undergrind. Filistix serves healthy menu items inspired by Filipino, Korean and Thai cuisine. It has been a popular healthy staple for students at both the University of Alberta and MacEwan University.

“We are delighted to welcome Filistix to SUB,” says Emma Ripka, Vice President Operations & Finance. “We already have a wonderfully bright and attractive space with the Atrium, and the presence of Filistix will add to the appeal and vibrancy of the space. They offer a wide balance of healthy food options as well as more decadent options, and we hope students will be as excited as we are to welcome them into SUB.”

The other new food court vendors include Hula Poke, serving poke and tostadas. Poke is a Hawaiian dish generally consisting of pieces of raw, marinated fish served over rice and topped with healthy vegetables and sauces. Hula Poke will introduce a new high quality, healthy meal option to the University campus.

In the former Taco Time location, Konz Pizza will be serving pizza cones, mac and cheese, and ice cream. Konz’s pizza cones have been a popular to-go option from their food trucks and restaurants in Kelowna, Calgary, St. Albert and Edmonton.

The Students’ Union is pleased to welcome all three new vendors to the Students’ Union Building in time for the beginning of the new school year in September.
