After a delicious encounter at Cheese Adda, with food loaded with cheese, and my mind resisting its own futile pleads to stop evilly convincing my body that it has put on extra kgs, I think it was rather a good idea to step into the Salad Bar and Walnut café to review their salads. After all, your diet should always be balanced, right?
Crazy as it may sound, I love me a good bowl tossed veggies with a good dressing. But hey, never have I ever given up the chance to stuff my face with greasy, and delicious junk food. Am I still crazy? Well yes, yes, I am and will be till I breath my very last labored breath.
One browse through the Salad Bar menu is all it took to know that they served a healthy selection of salads. If you turn the menu to the last few pages, you’ll find to your delight that you can also make your own salad. Perfect for those who picky about some vegetables. I must let you know that they have two separate menus, one is Salad Bar and another is Walnut café. While Salad Bar strictly serves healthy meals like vegetable salads, fruit salads and smoothies, the menu of Walnut Café serves those tasty and mouth-watering foods like pastas, garlic breads, fries, desserts and more.
To keep up with the balance, and to satiate my out of nowhere craving for salad, I went for the Salad Bar menu. After going through the many options laid on the menu under the salad section, I ordered the Zesty Chicken Salad, a humble salad with an assortment of veggies like lettuce, onions, tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, Cajun spiced chicken and grated parmesan cheese with mint vinaigrette dressing. Though the mild sweetness took me by surprise, it was delicious. It was the perfect bowl of the right amount of salad.
The interiors of the Salad Bar & Walnut café is what caught my attention first. A solid A. The little pots of plants placed in rows on a sort of slanting stand, that bricked white wall on which several frames of quotes were scattered, and another wall filled with frames of hilariously doodled celebrities mouthing food puns in comic bubbles.
After my perfect bowl of salad, I completed the course of the meal with a refreshing hot cup of coffee. A plain ole stout cup of frothy strong coffee, but nonetheless, amazing
I must admit, this indubitably was yet another delicious find in the Navi Mumbai. Definitely a place from where I can see orders of food frequenting my address’s doorstep. I mean, I will pay a second visit, of course once after I learn to let go of my lazy trait. JK!!
