Just Salad has three branches in Dubai. Located in Business Bay, Jumeirah Lake Towers and in Boxpark. The owner, Mr. Namir Hourani, was very kind to let me taste their new dishes. I was offered a salad, a wrap, soup and a smoothie of my choice.
Looking through the rather large variety, I was left confused. After much consideration, I settled for a Chipotle Cowboy Salad with Chipotle Vinaigrette dressing, Smokehouse Steak Wrap, their weekly special soup and a Strawberry Banana Smoothie.
I first tried the Chipotle Cowboy Salad ( priced at AED 45 ) without its dressing, to get the actual taste. And to be honest, I preferred it that way. I found the salad dressing a bit too sour for my taste. The salad, on its own, was good. It had grilled chicken, avocado, romaine lettuce, chunks of cheddar cheese, black beans, sprinkled with crunchy onions.
Coming to my favorite, the Smokehouse Steak Wrap. This wrap was quite huge. Priced at AED 44, you wouldn’t expect anything less from it. Upon opening its wrapper, I was delighted to find that it was cut in two halves. This made it easier to eat. Containing romaine lettuce, charbroiled chicken, black beans, corn and feta cheese, all wrapped together, the Smokehouse Steak Wrap expects a very hungry customer, and that I was. But due to it being rather generous in size, I couldn’t finish it.
I’m not really a soup lover, hence, this soup didn’t quite amaze me. My weekly special soup ( AED 15 for small, and 22 for large ) was liked by dad, though.
To finish off with my huge meal, I had a Strawberry Banana Smoothie ( AED 24 ). Now, this is a great drink to beat the heat. It’s sweet, but not in an overpowering way. Sipping from it, I could taste the seeds of strawberries with a hint of banana. The smoothie is large but healthy.
A special mention to the service of Just Salad. They have a very polite and helpful staff. Mr. Krishna, the operations manager, was very kind to help us with our delivery needs.
Just Salad is a great place to come to when you want something light. A perfect place for the fitness conscious people! They also provide home and office deliveries close to their branches. This restaurant definitely deserves a 4.5/5!
I will be coming back soon for their wraps and smoothies! 😀
