Who would have thought seeking out a New York style "make your own" salad bar was going to be this challenging? I guess it's that much harder to find something you like when you have your heart set on something in particular. Like when you have to pick out a dress for an event and you know exactly what you want. Somehow, the stores never carry that one dress that you have a perfect picture of in your head. Well, for salads, it's pretty much the same deal.
I have had my heart set on finding that one salad bar, that New York Style salad bar that would make all of my tough lunch questions go away. My ten minute walk down Dean Street on our only sunny day this week, led me to this fantastic place called Make Mine- a Make Your Own Salad Bar, and I had my answer.
At Make Mine, they make it for you. For £4.35 a pop, you can add 4 ingredients of your choice, which are close to your heart. No additional cost-surprises. Choose your type of lettuce, romaine, mixed or rocket and add on top of that butter beans, avocado, sundried tomatoes, parmesan, jerk chicken or even Hoisin duck! Fresh ingredients and exciting salad dressings are sure to make you salivate in the queue on your way to the counter. From pesto and lemon to French and balsamic, a perfect vinaigrette is key in the making of a perfect salad. So if you're in the mood for some salad individuality and you're in Soho on your lunch hour or shopping hour or whatever hour, stop by Make Mine for a bowl of your own salad to go. You'll love every bite of it.
ps: For the boys who think salad is a waste of stomach space, you can make your own sandwich.
