“The project's aim is to let students vote from 10 lunch menus by putting a sticker on the column of their favourite meal,” he said. “Example of choices are Benjarong green curry, teriyaki chicken and rice, tonkatsu (pork cutlet) and rice, Kwantip’s fried chicken, Hainanese chicken rice, and vermicelli pad thai.”
