    The best meals are found in the most unexpected places, yet in the heart of everything! An often overlooked eatery on campus is tucked away in South Campus Hall, home to the WStore, The Writing Centre, Velocity Start, and a beloved Canadian classic—Tim Hortons. Just up the steps, a world of flavour hides behind two big blue entryway doors. An aroma of soups and spices from The Whet Noodle and hot curries from Masala fill the air.
