Even telekinetic kids who escape their secret government captors get hungry sometimes. Very hungry, in fact.
Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), the mysterious young girl at the center of Netflix’s hit series Stranger Things, does several things very well: controls shit with her mind, accesses the Upside Down, and scarfs food like there’s no tomorrow (which, to be fair, is always a possibility for her). When she comes out of the forest, she finds herself at a diner; when she meets Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), they feed her non-stop; and when she gets her first taste of pre-packaged waffles, she makes it her mission to eat more of them.
Why, exactly, someone would love those flimsy carb cakes more than any other food — even back in the ‘80s, when the show is set, there were many better options — but hey, who knows what was done to her brain.
To honor El’s uncanny ability to wolf down any nearest piece of edible matter, here’s a look at everything she eats in Stranger Things.
