Village Dining Hall
The dining hall at the Olympics and Commonwealth Games is quite incredible. About the size of an airplane hanger, the dining hall caters cuisines from all around the world. The dining hall is open 24 hours a day, and there is always a plethora of freshly cooked food and ripened fruit.
The dining hall is organized by cuisine. Large banners rule high above the food stands, indicating what kind of food is available at each stand. If you want pasta, you head towards "Italia". If you fancy sushi, you head to "Asia". Unfortunately... there were no meat pies or pavlova- hopefully they add these to the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in 2018.
Prior to competition, most athletes linger around the healthier salad bars and freshly made sandwiches. However, the crowd quickly shifts to the free McDonalds as soon as they are finished competing. Yes, free McDonalds. Anything and everything... all free!
In addition to the main dining hall in the village, there are numerous "casual" dining facilities located around the village. These are smaller dining venues that usually include a BBQ style dining.
