Facebook Office Food Tour

Lunch at the Facebook Office in Menlo Park, CA.

We got to visit the Facebook Office for lunch today, thanks to my Thick Dumpling Skin co-creator Lisa Lee, who works there!


As you can imagine, the cafeteria is very reminiscent of college.


Tons of options – from soup and sandwiches…


…a big old salad bar…


…drinks galore!



We decided to partake from the hot and ready-prepared food options


There were even more on the rooftop, where we wound up dining…


…along with an entire BBQ, fresh off the grill!


I got some Pulled Pork, Wild Boar Stew, Chicken, and Vegetable Paella…


…roasted tomato, grilled asparagus, and two salads – one was Romaine with Peaches + Candied Pecans, and the other was Arugula topped with Pancetta Lardons, Watermelon, and Feta


Mark Zuckerberg keeps his crew well-fed!


I had a couple bites from Abe’s vegetarian main dishes – frittata, beans, and pizza


A few dessert options – managed to limit myself to two


1/4 of an It’s It Ice Cream sandwich – think oatmeal cookie meets Klondike Bar


Also a bowl of frozen yogurt…


…topped with figs in syrup!!! It’s like they KNEW I was coming today.


Other very “Lynn” treats were peppered throughout the offices – there were snack stations EVERYWHERE!


I snagged a few to go, plus a Tootsie Pop flavor I’ve never seen before – watermelon FTW.


Thank you, Lisa!


Posting this on my Facebook page is gonna be so weird.

    Um…this post was amazing! That is so neat that you were able to go there, and I FINALLY watched The Social Network (I know I’m WAY behind) but it was excellent, and excellent timing for this post!!

    Uhhh, I need a job at a place like that! Pretty sure I would gain 3920 pounds and wouldn’t get any work done because I’d just be eating non-stop 🙂 Looks like so much fun!

    Is it weird that the first thing I noticed (well, the second) was the Le Creuset pots and pans things are being served in?

    Eating on the roof sounds fab. Lucky you with the good weather!

  8. Cait's Plate

    Oh man working there must be like heaven. Though I think I would pack on more than a few pounds with all that food around!

  9. Jessie

    Wow! I can’t believe the food! They must have a whole crew of gourmet chefs there – love the Le Crueset cookware!

    Jeezzz. I wished I worked at that place! So many healthy food options:) You’d never have to pack your own lunch. Looks like a great day!
