New hamburger concept growing
Café Cesam in C Building has closed down. Behind the hoardings a whole new hamburger concept is being developed. LiU will be the first place to have a Carlson’s Barbeque.
The part of C Building that was previously Café Cesam will be a construction site until the beginning of March. But when the shutters open in the beginning of March, items such as hamburgers and frozen yoghurt will be on the menu.
“Carlson’s Barbeque is a concept with Swedish quality and an American touch, with hamburgers like pulled pork or vegetarian in combination with other ingredients. The menu will be developed with several barbecue dishes during 2014,” explains Maria von Krusenstierna, contract manager at Eurest.
To go with the hamburgers, customers will be able to choose not only French fries but from a variety of salads. All the food will be prepared on site in the restaurant. Another new item will be frozen yoghurt.
“Frozen yoghurt has become very trendy,” says Ms von Krusenstierna. “We’re going to have a system where you take the yoghurt yourself, choose from a buffet of different toppings and then pay by weight.”
Carlson’s Barbeque is a new concept from Eurest. It is being developed here at LiU but it will be able to be used at several of Eurest’s restaurants in companies and universities around Sweden.
But is a quality hamburger suitable for a student budget?
“Hamburgers were requested by the University and the students,” Ms von Krusenstierna says. And they will complement the range of other restaurants at the university. A hamburger menu where a quality hamburger together with side salad, French fries and a dip will cost around SEK 70-75.
The new restaurant is being developed in collaboration with Eurest, the University and Akademiska Hus who are building at full speed behind the hoardings. Ms von Krusenstierna hopes to be able to open the new hamburger restaurant in the beginning of March.
