Advice: Counter service and a delivery service.
It’s all about healthy salads, soups and juices at this locale inside the Chopra Yoga Centre. Conveniently located at the exit of the Canada line station at Pender street. Here you will find entree and snack sized salads, I loved the Soba Noodle Salad a big bowl filled with organic Japanese soba noodles (buckwheat noodles), spinach, rainbow carrots, and chioggia beets all tossed in a sesame soy dressing and topped with spicy radish sprout with Oceanwise sockeye salmon.
I have also had their Bangkok Quinoa Salad a Thai quinoa salad with cabbage, rainbow carrots, kohlrabi, red onions, cilantro and tossed with a ginger almond lime dressing. Topped with cayenne, cumin and paprika dusted crunchy roasted chickpeas and crushed roasted local hazelnuts; as well as the Delicat roasted and spiced delicata squash, cranberry, pickled red onion, and salad greens are tossed with protein rich millet in this fall favourite salad. Tossed in a light vinaigrette and finished with toasted almond and feta cheese from Farm House Cheese in Agassiz, BC.
Juices are from the Juice Box fitting into the local organic theme. Notable tea purveyor Silk Road teas are on offer to go along with coffee. With limited seating this is a good spot for takeout too!
