How odd it seemed, but I chose a nice concoction of pineapple, orange, mango, and banana drink they call the Power Punch to go with my salad. Power punch nga – it was so powerful enough to cause my insides to revolt hours later. But that’s another story for later. I was quite happy with my pick, enjoyed the ambiance and service. Ratana is so friendly and accommodating. My friends and I are happy to come back to this place again when the urge to eat greens strike us again. And by the way, they do accept deliveries for free!
There’s a newly-opened salad bar in town called Vego and my friends went there last Wednesday to check the food. We were sort of in an adventurous mood and,being meat-lovers, we were surprisingly very eager to try an all-green lunch. Turns out, it’s a make-your-own salad joint. How fun! For $3.50, I had this:
Greens – Ice berg, Romaine
Free add-ons – cherry tomatoes, mushroom, green olives, cucumber
Free condiment – boiled eggs
Dressing – Vego dressing
Once you had your pick, they will make it for you. For $1 you get to choose another cheesy add-on, and, another $2, there’s salmon, tuna, prawns, crabmeat and sundried tomatoes for choices.
Set in a small but a nice, cozy, woody interior, which I really, really like. During lunchtime, customers usually queue for take-outs and so the place doesn’t really get crowded that much. Diners are guaranteed to enjoy chemical-free vegetables and the dressings are freshly made. Ratana, the owner, said the Vego dressing is a secret family recipe.
Vego is located along Street 51 (Pasteur), about four doors down off Sihanouk Boulevard, and just a stone’s throw away from Wat Langka and the Golden Street.
