If your a Boulderite and/or CU Boulder student you will love the C4C. This 17 million dollar Center For Community has office and event space upstairs and below is filled with coffee shops, express food, and a wonderful buffet.
A trip to the buffet its about 12 bucks and $7.50 for students. All the sections of the buffet are amazing for campus food, but, my personal favorite is its Persian Ghaza section where the meat is cooked on sword skewers! Serving up quality cuts of lamb, beef, and chicken - its yummy time.
After a trip to the Persian Ghaza section, there's no going back - If I want Persian in Boulder, I'm going to the C4C.
Chef Hadi and his team makes sure that everything is made with love. Watching him cook, I think the secret is glazing the kabobs (lamb and/or beef, chicken) with a butter mixture. This allows them to crackle and smoke and it creates an intoxicating aroma that sucks students into his line.
All the food he uses is so fresh, even the herbs that you top the meat with is grown right on the territory. Fresh is key to buffet style food - it takes skill to keep food moving.
Top it all off with authentic Persian tea - served very fancy right at the station.
