Love at First Bite: SaladStop!

Despite my lack of interest in blah healthy food, I love munching on crisp greens. I make sure to hoard lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber and the like whenever I visit Baguio as enjoying salad here in Manila can be very expensive. Most restaurants serve salads with outrageous price tags that make you ask if there's gold in it. I tend to veer away from ordering overpriced salad but I gave in last Friday when my colleagues went to...

I have read a lot of great reviews about this place but the PHP250-PHP350 per bowl price seems to be too steep for lunch especially when I'm used to just spending... practically nothing as I bring packed lunch. But since it was payday Friday, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to treat myself a nice and healthy meal.
I got myself a bowl of Big Bird (PHP350) with Ranch dressing.

Serving size was huge! The bowl was filled to the rim with Romaine lettuce, smoked turkey, avocado, celery, green apples, and red grapes. It was definitely good for sharing or you could split it to two meals. I opted to do the latter.
Instead of mixing the dressing with the salad, I simply dipped the greens in the ranch dressing.

It was love at first bite. I loved the play of flavors and textures among the crisp lettuce, slightly salty smoked turkey, smooth avocado cubes, refreshing celery, sweet grapes and slightly tangy green apples. But what I loved best was that they were far from being called stingy with smoked turkey.
I packed the remaining half to go and had it for breakfast the next day. And the salad was still as fresh as yesterday.

I made sure to keep the nice SaladStop! plastic container to keep my homemade salads just as fresh.

I’ll definitely be back to try the other signature salads and wraps.
