Have you heard of ‘The Chopped Leaf’ yet? If not, trust me…you will soon, because from what I’ve seen, it’s the next big thing!
The franchise started out in Alberta, but recently branched out into Ontario and I was lucky enough to be invited to and try out the new concept at their brand new Burlington location. (A Hamilton location is coming soon!)
The Chopped Leaf features delicious, hand crafted salads and wraps, soups and sandwiches. While I was there we tried the:
Prawn Salad Rolls: carrots, lettuce, green onions & cilantro served with evil peanut sauce
These were way bigger than I expected and pretty inexpensive! The shrimp came in big pieces, and the evil peanut sauce that’s served with it is my new favourite thing. I’m not sure why it’s called evil (spice maybe?) because it is so, so nice.
No. 1 Whole Bowl: black bean corn salsa, avocado, cheddar, cilantro, pita chips, sour cream, salsa with chicken
All of their whole bowls are served on brown basmati rice. They’ve got a couple of choices and I’ve only gotten a chance to try the one so far, but really, they all sound like winners so I’ll be back to try the rest. The portions are really large for the price you pay and you end up leaving full, which is nice for a quick serve restaurant.
Cranberry Pesto Chicken Sandwich: chicken, cranberry sauce, pesto, peppers, cheddar, mozzarella & romaine
This as a tasty classic chicken sandwich with a big of sweetness to it. It wasn’t overly large, but it was grilled to perfection and would be great for a quick meal on the go.
Plus each day they feature a fruit infused water – we tried it, it was a nice addition to the meal!
They have a grand opening happening in Kitchener Waterloo at 26 Northfield Drive East this weekend (July 23rd, 24th) if you want to check it out for yourself. They’ll have awesome food, prizes and a chance to win a 1 year membership to GoodLife Fitness! (clwaterloo-grand-opening.eventbrite.ca)
