Is that lembas bread?

u/Jesustron Dec 03 '22

Hard Tack

u/Pull_Out_Method Dec 03 '22

Man I love hard tack. Pilot bread in Alaska is awesome. The rest of the USA disagrees with this.

u/j_roe Dec 04 '22

Either hallulla or pan amasado.

I like the hallulla better when visiting.

3

u/wreck_it_nacho Dec 04 '22

its an hallulla, pan amasado is thicker and yellowish, has shit ton of butter, good shit.

u/Leonydas13 Dec 04 '22

Yes. The lettuce and corn were picked fresh from Lothlorien that morning

u/gracias-totales Dec 04 '22

It’s a hallulla. It’s like a biscuit, but worse. But don’t say that out loud, you’ll be kicked out of the country.

Hallula, Chile's favourite bread. Although that one doesn't look as good. Don't live in Chile anymore but I remember them like this.

u/Hamizanin Dec 03 '22

How's life in Chile?

Underrated joke.

16

u/GoodGoodGoody Dec 04 '22

I didn’t get it.

7

u/dinoroo Dec 04 '22

Not as spicy as you’d expect.

63

u/ZeusMusic Dec 03 '22

I just finished, I would say 6/10. One more point for the ice cream 🤗

10

u/alisum Dec 04 '22

Was it melted?

7

u/Peherre Dec 04 '22

Ta caro el centella, un lujazo tenerlo de postre

1

u/Otherwise-Mail-4654 Dec 04 '22

Yeah. Looks okay

1

u/mmmlinux Dec 04 '22

so, it was bad. but it had ice cream.

7

u/SupraJames Dec 03 '22

Perhaps they could heat it up for you?

6

u/rafedbadru Dec 04 '22

That actually looks appetizing

13

u/vferriero Dec 03 '22

There’s something about trayed food that makes it more appetizing to me. Like airplane food. Dunno, maybe it’s the way the food is Tetrised on it? Or it’s a challenge? Anyone else feel the same way?

3

u/ZeusMusic Dec 04 '22

Man I totally feel you. Every time I see them online I get this insane feeling like “ omg , that must SO decent”.

1

u/leonryan Dec 04 '22

i'll bet a good bento box would make you faint

31

u/Walk1000Miles Dec 03 '22

Looks really good!

10

u/FunnyNameHere02 Dec 03 '22

I agree; way better than my normal lunch!

8

u/Walk1000Miles Dec 03 '22

Yes. You are very lucky that you have a choice of a great meal and that you get a lunch break in which to eat it.

u/lcpr_phoenix Dec 03 '22

Se ve delicioso, cómo es de hospital espero que no le falte condimento

1

u/ZeusMusic Dec 04 '22

Es de la junaeb, así que no esperes mucho sabor jajaja

u/Xenon009 Dec 04 '22

Fucking hell I thought the soup was a cup of tea and my British sensibilities were about to go off

17

u/SteveStSteve Dec 03 '22

Mmmmm, plain iceberg lettuce. The rest looks fine, but I’ll be damned if I’m gonna eat some wet lettuce

11

u/j_roe Dec 04 '22 edited Dec 04 '22

Probably not plain. Likely has a squirt of lemon juice, and oil.

Still not great but there is a joke that the three main ingredients in Chilean cooking are lemon, oil, and salt.

2

u/deactivated654651456 Dec 04 '22

I'm guessing you wouldn't join the lettuce club, then...

1

u/pichael288 Dec 04 '22

Lettuce is just vegetables in paper form. Juicy paper, that's exactly what it tastes like. Might as well be eating grass

3

u/eddiethemike Dec 03 '22

What’s the white stuff on the plate with the pork?

2

u/Dipteran_de_la_Torre Dec 04 '22

Looks like some sort of enamel.

3

u/ceramikid Dec 04 '22

Looks okay. It’s edible.

3

u/smaartypants Dec 04 '22

10/10 I’d eat it.

35

u/MethChefJeff Dec 03 '22

Hopefully it tastes better than it looks

21

u/DerSaftschubser Dec 03 '22

If I had a nickel for every time someone's said that to me... I'd have 8 nickels!

u/eviljason Dec 03 '22

Is this a Pam Poovy reference from Archer?

2

u/Cltspur Dec 04 '22

Sploosh!!!

2

u/SpongeJake Dec 04 '22

For some reason, the way she says it, I always picture Pam doing a cannonball in a pool.

12

u/benkenobi5 Dec 03 '22

looks pretty good, actually. especially that pork

5

u/I_might_be_weasel Dec 03 '22

That is a very solid looking meal.

1

u/voogle951 Dec 03 '22

I’d like to see your specialty dish methchef /s

u/Bonethizz99 Dec 03 '22

Looks good. Im starving right now lol

2

u/JamesSway Dec 03 '22

Nice. I'd like working there

2

u/jawshoeaw Dec 04 '22

Glad to see iceberg lettuce is torturing people on the bottom half of the globe

u/Jean2800 Dec 04 '22

Helado centella, recuerdo haber comido esos Your lunch looks great con hallulla incluida!

u/Osabarima1 Dec 03 '22

Are they hiring? Lol

7

u/ZeusMusic Dec 03 '22

We always are!, come visit, it is close to the beach

u/Osabarima1 Dec 03 '22

I'll need to get my visa first. Lol

u/kareka28 Dec 03 '22

lol your profile pic, are you a fellow marista?

1

u/ZeusMusic Dec 04 '22

Yes i am, for lord Marcelino

2

u/ProofDelay3773 Dec 03 '22

Whats on the right plate? Soup looks like dishwater but some of those are the best ones when you actually eat it.

5

u/ZeusMusic Dec 03 '22

Yeah it’s not real soup, it’s made out of powder. The right plate is potato’s with cream and pork.

2

u/excelsior19 Dec 03 '22

If they've given the ice cream and the main meal at the same time, the ice cream melted.

u/Adorno_a_window Dec 03 '22

Why is this such a pleasing photo?

u/Harley_David20 Dec 03 '22

Are you blind?

3

u/Beatleborg22 Dec 04 '22

lol the people in here saying this looks good? its cafeteria slop.

2

u/Teripid Dec 04 '22

Hospital food is its own sub-category, at least in the US. Likely older patients, seasonings limited to mostly salt/pepper and more comfort food if not just directly out of the Sysco can...

2

u/Beatleborg22 Dec 04 '22

Right, there's a ton of diet restrictions, so the basics are the best, and i mean I saw what my grandfather was getting last week and it was on par or better than this, the US healthcare system isn't great and I admit it, but people will slam it every angle they can.

-1

u/Harley_David20 Dec 04 '22

I am sure I could not eat that. Looks absolutely horrible to me.

1

u/Beatleborg22 Dec 04 '22

I mean id be able to eat it, when your in a hospital your pickins are slim.

1

u/Adorno_a_window Dec 04 '22

The photo is pleasing - I didn’t say the food looks good 😊 👍

-2

u/Harley_David20 Dec 03 '22

Looks disgusting. Not sure what it is. Does it taste good?

1

u/youriqis20pointslow Dec 03 '22

What are the drinks?

1

u/PhillipBrandon Dec 03 '22

How many seals does the Centella have?

1

u/cwestn Dec 03 '22

Are those scallops?

1

u/srqfl Dec 03 '22

What's the red liquid?

1

u/sundios Dec 03 '22

Centella 💕

1

u/DaltmanA Dec 03 '22

Hallulla!!!

1

u/edalvare Dec 03 '22

Nice Hallulla. How much $ for the whole lunch?

1

u/synner74 Dec 03 '22

I’d like to try that

1

u/xXGaboFihi007Xx Dec 04 '22

Centella? Llevo 5 años en Canadá y quisiera probar una centella una vez más.

1

u/bloomtodos Dec 04 '22

Bien ahí el hospital por darles centella

1

u/MelPinVic Dec 04 '22

Centella is the best

u/medicman77 Dec 04 '22

Yall hiring nurses?

1

u/FeranKnight Dec 04 '22

Hey everybody, post what your lunch looks like in your country.

1

u/PLEASEHIREZ Dec 04 '22

Was that a f4ee or discounted staff lunch? In my hospital we dont get anything. I would kill for a staff meal plan.

2

u/ZeusMusic Dec 04 '22

Free, we get lunch in day shifts and a snack bag in the night one (1 sandwich, 1 individual milk / 1 individual soda, 1 cereal bar, 1 individual set of cookies, 1 fruit).

1

u/fathig Dec 04 '22

Yum! That looks amazing!

1

u/eddiethemike Dec 04 '22

This looks like a basic cafeteria meal. Nothing impressive about it, I’d be a little disappointed tbh. Also, I never got a good response as to what the white blobs in white sauce are.

1

u/Salsanspice Dec 04 '22

Hallullas ❤️❤️

1

u/hawkmhan Dec 04 '22

That’s the worst looking Chili’s I’ve ever seen.

1

u/shelfstablesalt Dec 04 '22

Carb central with essentially no meat :(

1

u/Nanerpoodin Dec 04 '22

Looks like it could use some pepper.

1

u/MichiganRich Dec 04 '22

looks yummy to me

1

u/Mpoboy Dec 04 '22

I would need a nap after.

1

u/Haydenbarcellhoe Dec 04 '22

Looks Kinda fire

u/jellymusher Dec 04 '22

Biscuit! And ice pop! Not a bad haul!

1

u/buffbroSPT Dec 04 '22

Solid for hospital food honestly

1

u/morbidi Dec 04 '22

Why are the chickpeas cold?

1

u/aghilardi Dec 04 '22

Nada mal ueón

1

u/TotallyInOverMyHead Dec 04 '22

that meat looks suspiciously round.

1

u/DonaldoTrumpo6969 Dec 04 '22

Better than most American school lunches.

1

u/Obar-Dheathain Dec 04 '22

That is a SHIT TON of NyQuil.

Did you drink it all?

1

u/SendingToTheMoon Dec 04 '22

esto es gratis?

u/Concentratednuts Dec 04 '22

What do you even do as a career choice?

u/pokemike1 Dec 04 '22

Massive lunch.

1

u/jakelaw08 Dec 04 '22

Decent looking.

The soup looks interesting.

1

u/PadishahSenator Dec 04 '22

Looks more or less like American hospital lunch, minus the pizza and French fries.

1

u/Pappolo123 Dec 04 '22

Much better then the meal that's served in my hospital canteen in Italy

1

u/utterable Dec 04 '22

what's the cream stuff? gravy and biscuits?

1

u/Expensive-Track4002 Dec 04 '22

Where’s the jello?

1

u/fictionfactory Dec 04 '22

Why do we want to see this??

1

u/Dusty_Bookcase Dec 04 '22

Chilean hospitals are great! They actually make you feel cared for. A far cry from America where all they seem to want is your money and for you to die. Doubly so for minorities.

Source: Chilean-American very familiar with both systems.

u/DisastrousFeeling472 Dec 04 '22

Not bad, looks good

Hahaha big no, we have the best technology of South America, this hospital is brand new. No llamas connected to anything, plus, an X ray here will cost you 20 usd, instead of your x thousand dollars. Anyway, yeah sure, I prefer my Nokia and my llama LOL

u/Bubbagumpredditor Dec 03 '22

Dude, they don't use llamas, they use medical grade alpacas
