I was originally ecstatic at my discovery of Life Cafe’s salads, but was recently turned off when I walked in and the place smelled like a busted sewage drain a few weeks ago. Plus, the salads tasted like they had been left overnight (apples and broccoli were kind of stale). So, I’ve been frequenting Simply Life much more these days for their delicious salad boxes (HK$48, even cheaper than Life Cafe’s HK$50 small salad boxes).
At Simply Life (IFC or The Landmark), you get to choose from 3-4 different salads for your box, and they range from roasted broccoli and beetroot/pear salad to chick peas with lentils and pesto pasta. Everything is well seasoned with lots of flavour, and there’s enough variety to create a different mix each day. My personal faves are definitely the roasted broccoli (with a faint burnt taste), pesto pasta (of which I’m forbidden to eat, carbs, y’now) and beetroot with pear chunks. Mmmmm…
The ladies there do a good job of stuffing the box to capacity so don’t be shy to ask for more of whatever you like. Simply Life is super busy during lunch hour so be prepared to queue and/or fight for a seat, literally!
