Setting out to prevent a disconnection between people and food, SaladStop proposes to ‘Eat Wide Awake’ – and ‘oh boy’ their food is a delicious boost of energy.
Located in the Capital Tower on 168 Robinson Road, the SaladStop enjoys a prime location in Singapore’s CBD, posing a truly healthy and convenient alternative to the downtown grub and café food.
Having missed out on lunch, I made a late afternoon visit to SaladStop in search of tasty and filling food. Upon entering the shop I was immediately greeted by friendly staff.
The choice at SaladStop is easy and difficult at the same time. It’s easy in the sense that all ingredients look fantastic and difficult because there are too many mouth-watering choices, including avocado, olives, bell peppers and more.
Although everything is available for takeaway, I really wanted to eat in, as the huge glass window floods the shop with natural light, making it a cosy spot for a lunch break and people-watching.
SaladStop | Salads, Wraps and Quinoa Bombs
Being hungry (and greedy), I went for a DIY salad and one of the 12 signature wraps, which are also available as salad. More than 60 ingredient options might be overwhelming at first, but are actually very comforting as I really got to eat what I want. Starting with red and white cabbage for my salad base, I added red grapes, olives, beetroot stripes, fresh sprouts, sunflower seeds and a homemade basil-pesto dressing as well as a small bread stick garnish.
My wrap choice was called ‘Go Geisha’, including more cabbage, firm tofu, soba noodles, edamame, carrots, snow peas, cucumbers, sesame seeds and Japanese miso. Slightly toasted, the wraps are quite stable and don’t break apart while eating them.
In my student days I had worked in a kitchen and know what happens to ingredients that are on display all day long. As it was already 6pm, I wasn’t really expecting the freshest of produce – but both salad and wrap proved to be crunchy and fresh until the last bite.
I almost forgot – the crowning delight was the ‘Berry Grape-ful’ smoothie, made from 100% fresh fruit. I am kind of fussy with smoothies, as I dislike the slushy kind, but this one really convinced with real fruits, little water and the absence of added flavouring. The blend of red grapes, banana, blueberry, strawberry and orange juice was extremely refreshing and didn’t turn into a watery pulp after five minutes, which is usually the case.
SaladStop | A Healthy Awakening
All in all, their ‘Eat Wide Awake’ concept doesn’t only refer to the food quality, but is embodied in shop and staff, making it an honestly comfortable, healthy, and affordable place to eat. Nothing seems rushed, although all food is fast and freshly prepared in front of the costumers.
With an average cost of $10-$12 for wraps and salads, the portion size is quite sufficient, making it a valuable deal. If you can’t make it for lunch, you can order from Saladstop via FoodPanda.sg. I will definitely be back for more, also wanting to try their quinoa bowls and homemade soups.
