Not too long ago, Jeff and I spotted Harry Shum Jr. eating at b.good, a “healthy fast food” restaurant. It’s not a reason why we tried it though (at least not for me).
The concept of b.good is “real fast food” — healthy meals that are created at time of order and don’t make you feel terrible after eating a combo value meal at your famous fast food joint.
At first, you may think b.good is purely vegan or vegetarian, but they have burgers (we saw someone ordered it and it looked really small). They do try to source most of their ingredients locally.
We went to their King East location for a quick dinner prior to heading to the waterfront for Cirque du Soleil. They do have several other locations in Toronto and Oakville. We got their kale and grain bowls, which you can choose to have with quinoa or their “super grain mix”.
Power Bowl ($11.99) – kale, carrots, brussels sprouts (there was none!!!!), roasted chickpeas, pepitas, local egg, and tomato vinaigrette. Added grilled chicken for an extra $2.49. The chicken was cardboard dry.
Toasted Almond & Ginger Bowl ($11.99) – kale, sautéed veggies, bok choy, almonds, red cabbage, enoki mushrooms, mint, and toasted almond-ginger sauce. The bowl had so little sauce and the sautéed veggies weren’t even sautéed much. It was very disappointing for paying that much to eat like a rabbit.
b.good pretty much justified why it’s so much cheaper and better to create a salad bowl at home. The place was clean with ample seating at least.
