What they ate for lunch at Sochi:

Here is more of the article on what staff, volunteers, journalists ate at Sochi:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/olympics/heres-what-we-ate-at-the-sochi-olympics/2014/02/22/e11f98f6-9be4-11e3-975d-107dfef7b668_story.html


Borscht was the crowd favorite there. Otherwise, the food was convention-center-bland and on the pricey side: Coke and a baked potato, $6.50. After a few days, vows to avoid fast food in search of better nutrition were guiltily forgotten. A new mantra was repeatedly overheard: I haven’t eaten this many McDonald’s meals over 20 years.

The Big Mac became a gourmet’s dream, fries an epicurean delight. And soon everyone stopped complaining about having to pay 85 cents for a small vial of ketchup.

...


There were glorious escapes, when Olympic denizens would fling themselves out of the fences and into the city, following enticing aromas to smoked Russian salmon and caviar pizza. They raved over Georgian khachapuri — describing it as cheese-filled bread offers little sense of its wonders. They marveled at grilled meat on skewers known as shashlik, and the pelmeni — meat-filled dumplings dressed up in sour cream.

Sad. I never understood a fast food company sponsoring an event that requires being in shape and healthy eating.  Mcdonalds is gross though.

It sounds as though if they were up for some travel that they could try actual Sochi foods.

 I like the sound of lunch much better than the breakfast.

The food choices there don't sound appealing. I think I'd have prefered the food eaten by the local people. Too bad more of that wasn't offered.

I couldn't believe it when I was visiting my friend in England, and the first place he took me was McDonald's!  I wanted local food, to experience the culture!  Not to go find something that I didn't even choose at home!
