Menzha

It's Lunchtime.

So many menus, so much to choose from. With Menzha, you get the lunch menus from all the mensas around the different campuses in Zürich right on your wrist.

Whether you are around Rämistrasse, Hönggerberg, Irchel, Toni-Areal, Oerlikon, or another campus offshoot from ETH, UZH, ZHdK, ZHaW, or PHZ, Menzha is here to help you pick your meal from the wide variety of menus out there. Because we think lunch break is too precious to miss your favorite meals, isn't it?

1. Mark your favorites.

Having your regular spots, often frequently there? Mark your beloved mensas as favorites, making them always appear on top of your list for faster access. Choosing your spot for lunch today should take you seconds, not minutes. But always remember: There's a lot more for lunch around campus than you might think.

2. Set your price category.

Not a student? Set the price category you're belonging to accordingly in the settings. Not sure how much the meal from that small cozy mensa down the street costs again? Here you are.

3. Switch to German.

Prefer to read the menus in German? Although not every single mensa announces their meals in English, Menzha tries to show you the English version by default. Easily switch to German if that suits you better.

4. Show vegi menus first.

Menzha is designed to show you vegetarian menus first, marked by a cute green plant emoji at the top left corner. You don't care about our beloved planet and your ecological footprint? The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) describes plant-based diets as a major opportunity for mitigating and adapting to climate change. 1 But you can easily turn off the sorting in the settings.

Coming in the Future

5. One meal just for you.

I plan to explore how Machine Learning could be applied to learn from your food preferences. Do you always miss your beloved Kimchi down at Clausiusbar? It may soon not happen anymore with Menzha. Or what about using spatial information to show you the closest mensa first? There's plenty to explore here. Stay tuned.
