It’s more take-away than truly eating out, but the newly refurbished salad bar at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place deserves more than a passing mention. Although it’s an awesome option for lunch, the bar is open all day and works just as splendidly for a super casual dinner or a snack in the middle of a shopping spree!
With so many items to choose from, the options are almost limitless when creating your salad. One of the greatest features of the bar is that there is no limit on the number of toppings you can select. Prices are based on the size of the bowl you choose, not the content of your salad – and the prices are incredible!
I was feeling very hungry during this visit, so I chose the large size, and it still only cost $59 HKD ($7.50 USD). The medium, which is also big enough for a full meal, especially if you select filling items like pumpkin, beans, and hard boiled eggs, costs $49 HKD ($6.30 USD).
The quality of the produce is unmatched, and the dressing options are delightfully unexpected. This was my second visit to the new salad bar, and I look forward to creating new, delicious salads during future visits!
If you decide to check it out and you’re gluten free, be sure to pick up a loaf of the bakery’s Celiac Friendly Loaf while you’re there. As far as I know, Great is the only grocery store in Hong Kong to bake fresh gluten-free bread, and it is delicious! I love having it toasted for breakfast with a smear of almond butter!
