I have been longing for a healthy, pretty, yummy salad for a couple of days now.
Not one of those salads which calls itself a salad but it doesn’t even resemble one, you know? I wanted something filling and delicious but also GOOD for my health.
So, I headed over to a local restaurant – Planted in Hamilton, where they pride themselves at being ‘Vegan. Gluten-Free. Awesome.’
They’re located at 225 John Street in Hamilton – can be a bit tricky to find them – they’re the furthest north plaza unit from John Street. But I found them, no issues!
I pre-ordered a take-out Planted Salad and Kombucha. The over-the-phone service was FANTASTIC! Friendly, efficient and helpful. The in-person service was just as nice!
And – when I walked in to pick up my food – I was SO sorry I couldn’t stay in! What a fabulous little place! Funky, laid-back, hip.
Loved the two oversized, heavy, wood tables in the middle and splashes of colour in the wall art and flower bouquets.
Not a ‘fancy-schmancy’ place at all. Definitely a place where you want to hang out, relax and eat all the beautiful, healthy food! Perfect!
Now a few words about the F-O-O-D!
The Planted Salad ($11)
Shredded kale, tomato, carrots, cucumber, roasted sweet potatoes, guacamole, tahini dressing, and pumpkin seeds.
Can I say: yum?! I couldn’t ask for anything better! Seriously, it hit the spot – right on! Healthy, beautiful and oh-so-delicious! And filling too!
Kombucha ($5.50): Organic, raw, undiluted, living kombucha from Guelph’s Live Kombucha.
Loved every sip! Yum again!!
I think I will be a frequent customer!
5 hearts out of 5 for Planted in Hamilton!
