There’s no shortage of good burgers in London.
But if you’re after a good salad, it’s a very different story.
I was just about to give up hope of finding a good salad bar in the capital, when I stumbled on Vital Ingredient.
With 17 shops across London, the mini salad-bar chain offers made-to-order salads, customized to the customer’s exact specifications.
The concept is pretty simple: you choose a ‘base’ (from a choice of leaves of carbs), then you select additional ingredients, and a sauce.
And there are LOADS of ingredients to choose from: all the usual suspects of course, including sweet corn, bacon, chicken, tomatoes etc., a well as some less usual ones such as buckwheat, tortilla crisps or olives.
There plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options available and it’s basically any salad-lover’s dream come true.
The full menu’s available here but the rule of thumb is: if you can think of it, Vital probably has it.
I went for a medium size salad (they also have larger ones in case you’re starving!) with all of my favourites (spinach leaves, tomato chunks, bacon, mozzarella, olives and Ranch dressing) and it was delicious!
Fresh, light and healthy but still filling, it made for a perfect on-the-go lunch!
There’s also some hot food, cold drinks, snacks & puds, so really, Vital got all your lunch bases covered!
So next time you’re craving something green, head to Vital for a healthy lunch, made exactly the way you like it!
