This post will be short but not sweet. I was really excited when I saw there was a new salad place very close to my office. Even more excited when I saw long queues of hungry workers every day at lunchtime.
This place has a similar concept to Salad Works and Sumo Salad offering a variety of signature salads but also the ability to build your own.
They also have sandwiches and a few soups available, including a Peruvian spicy chicken soup that sparked my curiosity.
But it was way too hot for soup and it was a protein fasting day, so I went the salad route. I chose a bed of spinach plus roasted capsicum, roasted pumpkin, grilled eggplant, mushrooms, olives and 2 servings of avocado (extra 50 cents each), with olive oil and lemon juice as dressing. Sebastian ordered a Thai beef salad. Both salads were bland and underwhelming. I also had an okay long black ($3).
