Note: This post is part of our guest series, The Corner, by digital media students at The University of Virginia. Today’s student contributor is Hajung Yoo.

Tuesdays during The Corner series feature two favorite Corner food items selected by a different University figure each week. Today’s picks come from basketball star Joe Harris, who last year led Virginia to the regular season and postseason ACC Championship, and was awarded ACC Tournament MVP. This Friday will mark the first time in 1,708 days that Virginia will play a game without Harris on its roster.  Harris now plays for the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers.  And, while he loves playing alongside the likes of teammate LeBron James, he still misses his favorite foods on The Corner. Harris’ picks:

1)  Funky Q Chicken Pizza with a Caesar Side Salad at Mellow Mushroom.  “It’s one of the few beloved franchise restaurants on the Corner and a hot spot for unique pies, beer specials, and trivia night. Their garlicky, cheesy, fresh crust is ‘the greatest.'”

2)  Any Sandwich at Take It Away. “I could literally swim in their house dressing. It is so good, and they have amazing bread.”
