Flex dollars stretch student budgets

It’s no secret that after eating in Rockland every day, an alternative to SU meal plans would certainly help those looking for a new way to entertain their taste buds.

Stevenson’s meal plans offer a unique opportunity to those looking to experience more than just an average dining hall experience. Besides meal swipes, all meal plans offer additional Flex dollars that can be used at several off-campus participating locations in the Owings Mills vicinity.

Depending upon their meal plan, students can have Flex dollars ranging from $75-$250. Additionally, a simple payment through Blackboard can renew Flex account with more funds.

One current Flex participating restaurant is Edo Mae Sushi, only a short walk from the Owings Mills campus. With reasonable pricing, exceptionally fresh produce and a traditionally appealing atmosphere, it’s no wonder so many students make their way down the hill to this restaurant.

The menu is extensive, offering over 50 different sushi rolls, sashimi, soups, salads, rice dishes, noodle dishes, and plenty more. A personal favorite is the “Out of Control Roll.” This treat features spicy crunch salmon, tuna, white tuna, jalapeño, avocado, with seared tuna, chili garlic and a signature sauce drizzled on top.

Not only are the menu options mouthwatering, but the management also provides exceptional service. Servers are polite and attentive; the service is consistently quick with minimal kitchen prep time, making the experience all the more enjoyable. Edo Mae creates an exemplary eating environment for its customers.

I have regularly suggested Edo Mae to friends and make my way to their Saturday lunch special as consistently as possible. If there’s one Flex location that has won my dollar, it’s Edo Mae Sushi.
