An enterprising Mixer who can afford a kitchenette from topside should be able to have one, but all the stuff that came preloaded in certain mix apartments should go. Yes that means some mixers will lose their groceries. Life is hard.
A food outlet could be placed in the mix, maybe down where Ashlin Pawn is or something. Good food items would be like, krill buns, protein paste, plain rice and beans, soy mash, potato hash, some basic sandwiches/soups/etc and a variety of soda and candy items. These should be flagged to work in both the Mixenette (please don't call it that) and topside kitchenettes, but a lot of the existing kitchenette items should NOT be loadable into the Mixenette as it is just a shitty ThermoBake and hot plate. Some of this stuff could even be reasonably nutrituous compared to soyanuts and rat kebabs, just try to make it feel depressing.
Why bother with this? Because food is culture, and right now most Mixers with apartments have free access to food that sometimes costs thousands of chyen topside, and the fact that Mix food is segregated to street carts makes it seem like the exception rather than the rule.
Plus I want krill buns damn it. The kind that puff up when you open the wrapper!
