By now, many people know that if you work for Google, you eat for free. But what exactly does that entail?
At the Mountain View campus alone, there are over 36 different cafes that offer a variety of different specialty foods. From fresh sushi to Indian food and exotic salads, Google has become known for their midday feasts.
At Google, employees are given the opportunity to eat as much as they want. The restaurants are styled after all-you-can-eat buffets, which is pretty unbelievable considering that Google’s Mountain View campus, for example, has over 15,000 employees, according to a blog post from author and professional cook David Lebovitz.
Google partnered with popular catering service Cafe Bon Appetit to help make sure employees’ lunch experiences are unique and constantly changing. Bon Appetit procures the freshest ingredients everyday, and they offer meals that fit the principles of Ayurvedic Sattvic cuisine, which emphasizes seasonal foods.
Check out some of Google’s dishes below that were taken from Googlers who tagged their lunchtime favorites.
