Really enjoying these photos from your daughter's university cafeteria! What a difference in price and quality compared to my experience in the US. Delicious!

There is definitely more awareness of halal foods at university cafeterias these days, although not all students have noticed it. What students probably need is enough time to actually get to the cafeteria and eat before lunchtime is over!

The curry seems to be made of beans....is that right ? We have curry made of Kidney beans which looks similar.

seeandoh: I don't think that the curry in the photo contains beans. Japanese curry usually contains potato, carrot, and onion, plus some kind of meat.
